Signed and noted. May I also add that anyone out there who voluntarily takes a cruise is an idiot!

I'm not certain I would want any job where I relied on tips. But I imagine they do get room and board.

According to the "Is it legal" portion of the O"Reilly Factor on 2/19/13. these cruise lines make customers sign an 8 page waiver preventing the line from liability unless there is negligence

I have a relative who is in the Marine Transportation business. He tells me many companies flag their ships in foreign nations, to avoid having to pay their crew members a living wage, or to be compelled to follow the health and safety laws for workers of the United States. U.S. companies flag their ships in foreign nations, in order to be exempt from U.S. labor and health and safety laws for their employees on their ships. This means that the crews are poorly trained, and poorly compensated, and on cruise ships, it puts passengers at risk. U.S. owned companies should be required to flag their ships in the U.S. and pay their employees a living wage, and give them all the protections of U.S. laws for their health and safety, and the health and safety of the passengers on their ships.

They should be obligated to do that what with the fees they charge passengers. They should also be forbidden from forcing people into signing over their right to sue, especially when it's clearly their fault. They're a typical greedy corporation sticking it to the people.

N&S You know there was a time when working the P&O cruise liners was only open to top professionals with a wage that matched their status but I am thinking of friends more than 35 years ago who considered the work as the acme of their young lives because they were seeing parts of the world that they otherwise wouldn't have. I always felt a little envious listening to their happy stories. Yes their quarters were cramped and the staff areas were a bit grimmer than the passenger side but exciting just the same. Given the proliferation of cruise ships nowadays I shouldn't be surprised that staff conditions have gone so far down hill and they are being treated like slaves. These current conditions cannot be right and must be addressed immediately!
