trading talent for free crusie

Hello. Would anyone know how to go about contacting cruise lines to trade a talent for a free cruise? Also would anyone know if cruise lines swap caregiving talent or experience for a cruise? Ty

As in your talent to perform onboard for a free cruise? I wouldn't have thought so I'm afraid. Cruise lines would tend to recruit. You could try to see if there is any jobs available for a cruise line and apply. There are many jobs onboard, you could try to look for one you fancy if you wish to travel.

Now you've set the ball rolling. Cruise lines soon will be wondering why they haven't made any profit as their ships are full of priest's that have saved thousands of dollars and the world has now officially turned catholic.

@lucy I'm afraid this is very unlikely. If you were to post content on a ship on behalf of a cruise line, it may be considered. Cruise lines don't typically give cruises away for free. If that was the case many of us would start learning new tricks and traits to earn a free cruise! 

@FJB That's a good thought! That's also a very noble and rare profession. 

@LukeJ It would be one holy cruise! We would all become priests if we could get free cruises. Let me know if this is a thing, and if so, sign me up!

@LukeJ The idea of talent for a free cruise sounds very naive because nothing is free. If you are extremely gifted at something and want to preform it over and over again everyday onboard, you could try out to become a performer onboard. You have to realize that performing onboard a cruise ship is not for the faint of heart. It takes dedication, commitment, and stamina. Also, you aren't performing for free cruises, you are performing to earn a living. Yes the perk is you cruise, but on the flip side the ship owns you, you are there to work, not to play. 

If priests are free to cruise, the I will play the part. I will even skip the alcohol package to prove my worth.

@LukeJ Well, if priests are cruising free, and I'm a priest, it would be against my moral conduct to behave in such a way. For those who are only playing the part, the idea of a secret drink would be genius! If I'm getting free cruises, I would assume a lifetime of sobriety. I would rather be celibate and sober, cruising everyday of my life than risk my lifestyle for a hidden drink. That goes to show, I would take my role very seriously. All of this to say, I would still be your friend if you chose to be a priest and drink on the job.

@Cruising Caribbean I'm glad to hear it, and I like to think you would be my support when I feel the need to take a swig from my bible. I still don't know whether it is actually true and does it continue if priests go onboard for free. I find it hard to believe because cruise lines do anything to make profit and take as much money as they can from you, and wouldn't allow a religious person the luxury of free travel because of their beliefs.

@LukeJ I would totally support you! If my cruise was free and booze was no longer I think I would become a thermal suite guru. The spa would be my ultimate escape. What a life that could be, reading my Bible in the Himalayan salt room for hours on end. I think I would live a life full of wellness and health, focusing on vitality. Maybe I would become the priest influencer, traveling the world via cruise sober minded. I mean, maybe the cruise line needs a little more holiness! I would imagine some cruise lines don't have enough holiness onboard, the holiness ratio could be off. As a priest, I could provide some holiness amplification services onboard.

Actually I take it back, that sounds even better than the drink. I like how you put that. I want to read the bible in the Himalayan salt room. That sounds peaceful, and the idea of being a priest influencer and travelling the world via cruise sounds like my chosen vocation. Thank you for bringing this to me.

@LukeJ I have brought you to the good side! Sometimes being a heathen is overrated anyways. I guess with my moral compass the life of priesthood may not be that much of a sacrifice for me. I'm pretty religious anyhow so dedicating my life for this purpose wouldn't be too challenging for me. I would't have a problem giving up drinking either. I can only imagine my life would be so peaceful, but I guess I would have to get rid of my husband. Who knows, that may bring me even more peace!

@Cruising Caribbean ooof, I'm not getting involved in any part of that ha ha 😂. I'm sure my wife would say the same about me. I'd have no problem with giving up drink if I wasn't around other people. I've easily one that before, where I could go months without touching a drop of alcohol, but I do enjoy the social aspect, and I definitely wilt to peer pressure when someone offers me a drink.
