Default Anyone here working on a cruise ship?

Should I give up 6 months of pursuing real goals such as music, drumming, writing etc to float around the Greek Islands videographing fat people on holiday?

Apparently the foods shit.

Anyone here done it?

This is true. The main other option is staying an my not bad media job at a main NZ television company for the rest of the year, trying to make more contacts and get more experience, while also playing gigs and practicing drums.

Or fucking off overseas on a working visa to either UK or perhaps AUS, which I'll probably do at some stage anyhow.

I signed up for the cruise, but the closer it gets to doing, the more I realise I'll be stuck in a cabin for 6 months, unable to drum and pursue artistic projects while getting older and loosing opportunities to have some kind of a 'break' utilizing my talents.

I'm probably just being a neurotic bastard.

I bet you'll make a lot of memories, but a few might be terrible.

Isn't there a live band on cruises sometimes? You could buddy up with them if so, and maybe they'd let you jam?

We have a friend who is actually the cruise ship entertainment, so see if you can score a gig doing that. That way, you won't have to give up all you mention for 6 months.
