Traveling the world aboard a luxurious cruise ship and meeting people from different cultures may seem like a fantastic opportunity. However, the reality of working on a cruise ship is quite different from the dream. Despite the allure of the luxurious lifestyle, working on a cruise ship may not be as dreamy as it appears. Life on board can be far from glamorous, and the cruise ship workers’ experiences may surprise many. The unwritten rule “what happens on the ship stays on the ship” can create a culture of secrecy similar to that of Las Vegas. Some employees lead secret double lives, keeping their on-ship activities hidden from their loved ones on land. Nevertheless, recent revelations and discussions have shed light on the reality of life on board, challenging this culture of silence.
