I'm a Shore Excursions Hostess in a cruise ship! AMA
I started working in cruise ships in March of this year and I have to say it's a pretty unusual life. So if anyone has questions, whether it's pure curiosity or perhaps a desire to come onboard and try it yourself, go ahead and ask away! Here's some basics:
What is a Shore Excursions Hostess? Well, this position has many different names but it boils down to just a couple of things: selling the excursions, preparing for the excursions disembarkation and sometimes going on those excursions.
But... do you live in the ship? Yes! Much like 99% of all crew and staff working in major cruise lines.
Why is part of the picture crossed out? I'll divulge anything but I'd rather not share the specific name of my company nor the specific ships I have worked in. Only one of the three ships I have been in is listed, seeing as my first ship was just for quarantine and I am still in my third one so they haven't signed my Seaman's Book for it yet!
