cruise companies expoilting staff or globally competitive?

you decide

my view

companies can afford to have these ships built - pay staff (particually customer facing staff- as little as they can get away with) and expect passengers who have allready paid for their cruise to enhance the pay of staff with tips which is bad enough but are now trying to say if they don't exceed "performance targets" they will not receive tips.

Seems like an example of "cheap holidays in other peoples misery"

My best mate has been a personal trainer for the last three years on cruise ships, he doesnt make a fortune but has travelled the world, met his fiance' and made friends for life. I hate him now.

Apparently working on those ships you can get a tender behind.
