A typical day on cruise ship would be manning the gallery during the day where you would be displaying the photos that have been taken and marketing them to the passengers as they pass through the gallery. Depending on what night of the cruise it is, there would be shoots happening at night that would go according to the them that is running accross the ship that night. Be it formal night, where everyone dresses up in suits and elegant dresses, or other theme nights like pirates, cowboys, island night which are more casual and fun.
The biggest thing one can learn from this job is patience, as one works with a diversity of people, be it your co-workers or passengers. Everyone comes from a different background an some even speak a different language, so it takes a lot for one to make sure that both parties are on the same page and everyone is happy with what is going on.
The hardest part of the job is probably being away from friends and family, as communication via the internet isn't always that easy as the internet connections on board ship isn't always that reliable. One also has very little alone time and the work ours are long, but if you are a hard worker and understand this, this isn't too much of an issue really.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing all these new places that one might never even have heard of or seen and making new friends that you can keep for life all over the world.
Travel experience, friendships, saving oppertunity
Long hours, time away from family
