Well if you have to ask a question like this, working on a boat probably isn't for you. You are under the Coast Guard maritime requirements, which means a full urine screen at the time of hire and if you ever appear to be drunk or high they will drug test you on the spot. There is also random drug testing. I can't tell you how many people get fired when they go ashore and come back to the boat drunk. The deckhand on duty at the check in station can require you to take a drug test right on the spot. If you are found to be drunk, what happens is you are confined to quarters, a deckhand is posted outside your door and you are not allowed to leave until the vessel gets to the next port, where you will be dumped off to do the walk of shame down the gang plank to dry land. They may or may not pay your way home. Most companies don't pay your way so the fact American Queen does is impressive since now they have the added expense of replacing you.

Don't understand your question-- it is a job on a boat, you live on the boat, not on land. You will live aboard the vessel in a shared room for 6-8 weeks at a time and then you get 2 weeks off. Many people just put their stuff in storage and travel or couch surf with family/friends for those 2 weeks. It really isn't worth it to try and maintain an apt. while working on a vessel. If you don't have to pay rent, you will save a lot more.

Most positions get a flat day rate. I don't know what it is for a bartender, but the waiters get a day rate of $50 and the rest is a tip pool. The bar area has a separate bar tip pool that you will get a piece of and every drink sold has an auto-grat so the more you sell, the more you will make.
