Frequently Asked Questions... 

How long are the contracts?

As an singer, dancer or an acrobat you will  spend a period of up to 6 weeks rehearsing before you embark on a ship, where you will spend anything between 3-6 months depending on the Cruise liner.

Do I have to pay for my own flights and visas?

Мost cruise companies will pay for your return flight and the transportation of your instruments. You will also be reimbursed for your medical. Visas and vacinations are mostly paid for by the artists. 

Will I have my own cabin, or do I have to share?

On Most cruise Liners you will have a twin-shared cabin. That means you'll have to share with one other person. On some newer ships they sometimes have single-shared, i.e. you'll have your own cabin, but with a shared bathroom.

When will I get paid, and what does the agency charge?

Similar to any other job, you will be paid directly by the cruise company at the end of each calendar month directly into your bank account. We take the minimal 15% of your salary, which you pay to us, once you receive your paycheck. Everything is transparent and no hidden fees!
