I've read the book cover to cover 3 times and still found new points of interest each time. I did find it was a little outdated because not all it referenced is current, ie: contacts, vessels, destinations. All in all, an great guide for the cruising novice. It gave advice that I would have never thought of!

The book contains a great deal of information, but the author takes a lot of space describing how to be professional in your phone calls, letters, applications, resumes, interviews, etc. This info is invaluable for the first-timer who is not familiar with job-hunting, but for those who have been working for some time, this is old hat.
What I found most valuable is the careful descriptions of the cruiselines. However, the book was published pre-9/11, so there is no reference to how the world and the travel industry have changed since then, or how the disaster affected the cruise industry. Perhaps in the next edition the author will include this assessment.
Bottom line: buy it. You'll find something useful.

I will present two points in this book which amazed me unpleasantly. Let's start with the following advice for resume writing: "You'll need 50-100 copies. Sounds like a lot? Don't cheat yourself. You will have to send your resume with each of your initial applications and any follow up correspondence."

This sounds like buying as many lottery tickets as possible only and only to increase your chances to win the big prize. She stresses on huge quantity "50-100 copies", which from my background as Desktop Publisher I can label as mass mailing. In the brick and mortar world its success ratio is around 1% in case that the marketing/sales pitch is really good.

Furthermore you can read: "Carefully proofread your resume as if your job depends on its accuracy. A misspelling or typo brands you as careless..." Well, while I was reading the book, I found 3 typos, 4 grammar mistakes and 3 serious defects in the typesetting of the book. I really want her to DO what she preaches. Unfortunately she neither cares so much how qualitative is her book nor will be your resume. Cynthia Ossenfort, the author of Cruise Ship Jobs! is the other example of going overboard with:" Have a professional photo made and make about 30-50 quality copies."

In the category's bestseller Cruise Ship Job in 14 Days the author advices to make one, maximum two resumes, which are targeted to a specific cruise line, position and hiring manager. Also he has written that The Professional Association of Resume Writers does NOT recommend sending any photos. That's why I prefer to skip the Numbers Game of Mary Miller and Cynthia Ossenfort and follow "The LASER Strategy for Next Generation Applying" in Cruise Ship Job in 14 Days. It will be cheaper and there is greater possibility to get a cruise ship job!

The name of the book is quite misleading because half of the book consists of "Questions and Answers" to different aspects of the life and work onboard. There are also so many personal stories from people performing all kinds of cruise ship jobs. That's why the book gives insider information, which can be found to some extend only in "Working on Cruise Ship". If you are interested in the book for its potential to help you for writing a great cover letter and resume you will be disappointed because it contains only few pages with common sense tips. Actually this is typical for all other books.

The only exception is "Cruise Ship Job in 14 Days", which provides complete instructions based on the Professional Association of Resume Writers Standards. However it doesn't contain even one personal story. As you see there is specialization, which I guess is forced from the huge amount of information, which has to cover a book either on the life and work onboard or on writing a competitive application and acing the interview after this. If you can afford it your best bet is to buy two books, which cover both sides- applying and working onboard.

Give me 15 seconds and I'll prove you that the so called recommendations from the biggest names in the US Media are scam and they will never ever even look at such "book".
1. No page numeration! Have you ever seen a book which doesn't have page numeration? I haven't, nor did I think I will until I opened this "book".
2. No header! Have you seen a book without a header stating the book's name and the current chapter or the author's name? This doesn't have also this standard element.
3. No Table of Contents! Have you seen a book without a Table of Contents, which immediately shows you exactly on which page to find curtain chapter or topic? Well, this doesn't have such. I was lost in it and the only way to find anything in this book is to list many pages until luckily I find it. If the author cannot provide us with the standard navigation for a book HOW she will help you with something as complicated as getting a cruise ship job?
Furthermore, just think for a moment. Thousands of top quality books are being all the time rejected for review from New York Times and similar big names. So tell me, which respecting himself editor will even look at amateurish "book" like this one without any page numeration, header, Table of Contents and great value for the reader? Not even one!

In adition, the first 3.5 pages are full with paragraph long quotes from people such as "J.S", "J.B. Owen", "V. Durej", "Amy Oliver", etc anonymous people living in the middle of nowhere. BUT not even a word WHO, WHAT Exactly and in WHICH issue of New York Times, Conde Naste Traveler, Miami Herald, etc have said about this ridiculous "book".

As a Sales and Marketing Manager with 11 years experince I guarantee you with my signature that this is an author's trick designed entirely to increase the sales of her book which otherwise has very little to offer regarding "how to get a cruise ship job".

I can excuse the difficult to read huge font size, overstretched content, the few pages with practical advice on successful applying but NEVER an obvious manipulation against the readers' best interest! If you buy this book, you are not different from a brainless sheep and the author will keep on using such shameful marketing tricks instead of providing great value and service with her book!

If you are looking for a "legitimate" book on cruise jobs which is independantly recommended as "5-star Exceptional" from an authority such as Foreword Magazine and everyone can immediately verify it at [...] buy Cruise Ship Job in 14 Days.
