Cruise ship nanny
by: Student1990 - 21-07-09 22:21
I will be finishing my cache diploma level 3 next year and during my break before going to uni I'd love to get a job on a cruise ship working in a creche or as a nanny, Has anyone on here ever done this work? Would you recommend it? And how do you go about finding jobs?
Any advice would be appreciated!

With this type of position there are the usual horror stories. The BBC whistleblower on childcare highlighed some of the issues but mainly focused on Mark warner.
It is often poorly paid, long hours, employer unclear about living conditions but make known that if you want to leave before your contract you will have to find your own way home.
I looked into this a few years ago but decided it wasn't for me. I am sure someone will be along soon to share their positive experiences as mine seem very negative.
If you google it loads of seasonal jobs come up

hi i worked for mark warner i did two seasons i was away for a year. it was the best experience of my life and if it wasnt for family problems i would of done it again. the pay isnt great and you do generally work long hours but the work is not like working here its fun exciting. i went to 2 resorts and the accomadation was a 5 star hotle but it was my own space and as long as youve got photos and things form home to put up you can make it feel like home. at the end of the day its all about the xperience and i loved mine!!!

The cruise lines do not have nannies. You would be hired by the family to be their nanny.
