Remember to share this blog with your friends and always read the older posts for lots of cruise job information and current contacts.

One contributor to in particular,(not the website itself, or so I will believe for the moment), is stealing contacts off my blog for free, and then simply re-posting them on that website - a site which charges for the identical information. Information however, you would need to be actively on the "inside" to be privy to. (Yes,I realize the sentence ends with a preposition!)

To prove a point, here is new info no one knows yet. As of today, Chuck Farmer is no longer in charge of hiring bands, solos, musicians for Carnival - he has resigned effective immediately - no replacement as of today! People who contacted Chuck directly got hired. Those who used other job search/contact means and took the long "scenic route", did not get hired.

The whole point of cruisegary is to avail personal job contacts made over years of working on ships. This helps prospective crew get direct access to those who do the actual hiring for cruise ship jobs, and it helps respective departments get acess to good candidates. Its not meant to be regurgitated by others to make money.

So, if you wish to pay for information that's available for free - thats your perogative. Ultimately, no one can get you the job but YOU! However, having the direct personal contact is 90% of the process. Unless of course you really suck at eveything, then, you are beyond help.

Do not spend your money paying for information available for free! Use it to buy someone flowers!

No one can promise you a job!

Thank you.
