If you are a newbie, you need to have a strong gut working in Norwegian,
You must learn to squeeze travel time during your break to you schedule.

Superiors and some colleagues will drag and put you down. However, I enjoyed working here because i gained some peers during hardships and i did go to beautiful places. .The Bridge and Main office will take care of you for any unresolved concerns, just do your job well and be kind and nice to everyone, and you will survive.
Pros
free drinks during occasions
Cons
Most Superiors possesses Poor leadership skills, which greatly affects your performance as a staff.

Cruise life is a great way to travel and gain new skills. Don’t be afraid to start at an entry level with the Cruiseline and work your way up to salaried positions.

I think my days at NCL were made great due to my team, I did hear complains from other departments, but nothing that would make them leave. I loved working there, and would go back. There is no such thing as a typical day, this is the hospitality industry in a cruise line where there is work 24/7, while you sleep there is some ship in Europe/Asia just beginning embarkation, this is what I enjoyed the most, the thrill and the adventure of something always happening but being able to get the job done. Management (executive level) is a little close minded on new ideas, not totally, but sometimes it takes convincing to implement good sound ideas.

If you want to travel constantly and save some cash (which you can if you're careful) this is a good job for when you are young. The lifestyle is eventually exhausting. For all the cool countries and fun work, the hours get weird, you will never have privacy, the food is repetitive, and you will not feel valued as a person by the company. It's freshman year of college meets Westworld meets awful corporate culture.
I was very happy working there, but it's time to be done.
Pros
Travel, no bills, free food, great friends, no commute
Cons
No days off, crazy hours, no privacy, boat drill, medical is awful...

While the opportunities to travel and see the world are great with NCL, their efforts in communication from initial hiring to the rehearsal and onboard process are in serious need of improving. I was often in the dark as to what was expected of me and where I needed to be.

If you are looking for a outbound sales, PCC, you are just a number. They start paying you per hour and after 90 days you go to salary plus commission. The big issue is that you don't work only 8 hours per day. You work 10 to 12 hours.  And if you don't do that, you are on the black list. You need to work weekends.  They put a lot pressure and don't pay you overtime.  Good luck if you get any commission. This job is good for young people and have nothing else to do besides work.

You can explore and see different places

very hard and demanding job, missing your family whose miles away from you
