The crew was basically divided in half. There was a huge group of Southeast Asians, quite a few were even family members. They mostly stuck to themselves and did a lot of the manual labor style work. The second group was 18-30 year olds from U.S., Canada, Australia, France, and England. The younger kids humped like rabbits and drank like fish. Most people would blow every paycheck going nuts at each port and drinking on the cruise ship. The older Southeast Asians very rarely drank and very rarely did much at port other than pickup some personal supplies.
The rooms were pretty small and the vast majority of them were shared. The meals for the crews was pretty bomb, and you could also eat/drink anywhere you wanted on the ship as long as you were off your shift and not in your work clothes. It seemed as if the general consensus was it being a great experience for a short period of time, but it is not something you’d most likely enjoy for more than a few seasons unless that type of lifestyle appeals to you.
