Arctic cruise ships may seem dwarfed by the cruise ships most people are familiar with, but when it comes to adventure, they are super-sized. These are expedition cruises, so while the ship and cabins are perfectly comfortable with all the amenities you might need, don’t expect lots of bars, nightclubs, and rows of glitzy souvenir shops that you’ll really enjoy. Since there are no casinos, gyms, theatres or swimming pools on a small cruise ship, you really need to leave the deck of the ship and go out into the big, vast world to have fun. Basically, a small cruise ship is for those who can’t imagine being on a big cruise ship, but can’t handle the sometimes cramped spaces of a small yacht.
The great thing about small boat cruising is that you can do all the work on islands that larger boats never go to. On an adventure cruise, it’s all about hidden islands and coves that big boats can’t reach. From remote fishing villages in northern Iceland to hidden coves in the Galapagos Islands, small cruises will turn your attention back to the world around you and leave you wanting more.
For some, this is an unimaginably long time at sea, while for others, continuous sailing has become a way of life. Sipping a martini and driving to world-famous cities sounds like the perfect day at work. Falling asleep in a world-famous city and waking up in a different city is the unique perk of working on a cruise ship.
The work environment is very diverse as cruise lines recruit jobs from all over the world. Since Adventure Cruises has around 50 people (the number depends on the boat, but on average you will be sailing with 35 other people), you really know the crew – they become your friends, your family.
The luxury aspects of a cruise are for paying guests, not staff, though there are some pretty nice perks for staff as well. Just some of the great food you will be eating. Adventure Cruises are a little different from the traditional mass cruise buffet.
UnCruise offers adventure, equipment, opportunities, fun, an experienced crew, guides and ship. Adventure Cruises has carefully crafted a range of carefully selected tours from around the world, combining classic cruise destinations (with a twist) with some innovative itineraries. An Asian cruise offers interesting options to choose from, including many modern cities, charming temples, secluded islands and small villages.
Chefs onboard take their place as you come ashore each day to taste the best food each port has to offer. Different phases of the cruise have different tasks, such as departure day, days at sea, and the time the ship is docked.
Ultimately, the cruising industry is perhaps one of the only ones in the world where you have both the staff and the passengers/customers genuinely enjoying the exchange. You don’t make it very far in this industry if you don’t enjoy travelling and if you don’t see the opportunities to travel related to your job as a blessing to take full advantage of.
