Connecting with Filipino Crew on the Wonder of the Seas


Recommended Posts

You could give Chris Wong a shout and see if he can contact any PH crew on Wots on your behalf. He's probably friends with some on socials or RC may have its own crew social like other cruiselines have

I know this wasn’t the purpose of your post but I just have to share this story…

I am 100% Filipino, born in NYC, raised in Jersey. And while I’ve only been on one cruise, I absolutely love cruising!!

The worst part of cruising for me - the amount of times I got asked a question by people who thought I was a crew member.

“What time does [insert place here] open?” “Where is the nearest restroom?” “How do I get to [insert place here]?” And my personal favorite “Wow, you have to stand in line with the rest of us?” 
 

I must have said “I’m sorry I don’t work here” a dozen or more times! Anyway, I chuckle at it now and if that was the worst of my vacation, so be it haha.

I hear ya! Not only am I 100% Filipino myself, born and raised there, I also love wearing spoofs of the the T-shirts crew members wear.  So you can just imagine how many times I have been mistaken for a crew member.
