Pros: free food all day long, breakfast, lunch, dinner and tea time snacks
Cons: long hours of work and no day off
The company is very supportive with the crew members, life on board is very multi culture and being flexible and versatile in life style is a must. food is not going to be a problem because it is always available as long as the mess rooms are open and the only hard thing is that we have to work long periods of time with our broken time and no day offs allowed but everything about the job is very routinary.
The company provide a chaplain on board to organize crew welfare and activities, and if allowed by the captain, every week there is a crew party and crew excursion for a specific country to visit. As a multi culture environment, the crew uses their own language so we used to learn and understand them and its also a free way to learn different langauge, but everybody speaks english most of the time even you are italian, spanish speaking crew, brasilian, indian, indonesia, chinese, vietnam and other european and asian crew on board.
