Carnival Employees getting personal

    I was curious as to knowing what happens if a employee gets caught "hanging out" with a carnival guest. I know that a bartender on the Carnival Destiny was caught with a guest on the same cruise week I was on with a customer and they wrote him up.

    But then I talked to a girl bartender from Romania on the Ecstasy that said that they get sent home immediately if they get caught now a days. Of couse that Destiny cruise was back in '97 when I went so I know how things change over time. I do notice that cruise employees are very weary of this an wanted to hear of any other stories about this one...

    My understanding is that employees’ getting personal with guest is strictly prohibited. That doesn’t stop them from trying though. On my first cruise a few years ago, one of the bartenders wanted me to meet him after he got of work (at 3:00am) so we can go for a walk (yeah…right). I didn’t mind talking with him while I was sitting at the bar but I didn’t want to get physical with him. He was pretty hot about my choosing not to meet him because when I saw him the next day, he didn’t even speak. He just gave me this crazy look like I did him wrong for not meeting him.

    I have another question along the same line as the original one posted. What if an employee’s spouse or significant other books a cruise for the purpose of seeing them? Does the employee get in trouble for spending time with someone he/she already has a relationship with?

    true , I know that a lot of them seem eager to hop in bed. That Romanian one named Ludmila thought I was inviting her to my cabin when I asked what happens in this situation , she said , " Why are you asking me ? Do you want to show me your room?"

    I won't say anything more ...

    Employees of the cruiselines are allowed families to come onboard but only at certain times. Especailly during their time working. Most crew will have guest onboard when they have the shortest working period.
    Employees can talk with guest- But guest are not supposed to be in crew quarters at all. and yes--the crew member can be sent home as soon as theyhit the next port for doing so.

    I was on Celebration in '01.

    The First Officer was "very friendly" with one of our traveling companions. I can only say that she never spent a night in her own cabin.

    No wonder they call them the "Fun Ships" HOT!

    Having said that I also have a friend who works on a ship (a two stripe officer on NCL). She is allowed to socialise with passengers but "hanky panky" is against the rules.

    We have been told where the better spots are to hangout on an island by crew and then would meet them later on that island getaway and party hard. When we would arrive there at that beach, there would be dancers from the show and other staff.

    Also, after hours just before closing, we have on two occasions danced with the staff in the ship's disco. They club would close and the staff and us kept dancing to the wee hours of the morning!

    For alot of the staff it is their job to socialize with passengers. So they are allowed to hang out with the passengers but they are not allowed to do anything over the limits. Crew members aren't allowed in passengers areas when they are not working at all so they would be in big big trouble if they are caught socializing after hours. The officers seem to get away with murder because they are well the officers. I am sure they could get in big trouble though if they were to get caught often.

    Boy, I wish I had partied with that one officer I saw on the Glory. My jaw dropped to the ground when I first saw him enter the dining room - very tall, thin, dark hair, and so handsome in the uniform. Every evening he would briefly enter the dining room, look around and then leave. We had a table at the entrance. I am sure he came just to see me................

    I chatted with some Carnival people onboard about these issues. There are two classes of Carnival employees onboard; Staff and Crew. Staff are officers, managers, professionals and most of the entertainers. They are permitted in the the passenger areas when off-duty and are allowed some social leeway with passengers. Crew is everyone else (waiters, cooks, deck hands, photographers, bartenders, stewards, etc.) Carnival keeps a tight leash on crew and contact with passengers is only permitted in the course of their duties.
