Relax and Unwind
Cruise ship crew members often enjoy opportunities to unwind and socialize at a fraction of the cost passengers pay. Their demanding work schedules leave them with limited time for relaxation, making these occasional breaks well-deserved. Crew members typically pay just $1 to $2 per drink, a significant discount compared to passenger prices, which can exceed $10.
While there are rules governing crew members’ interaction with guests and their alcohol consumption to maintain professionalism, they still find ways to enjoy some downtime and let loose within the confines of their employment contracts. These moments provide a chance for them to de-stress and build camaraderie among the ship’s staff.
