I often believe the problems on ships are due to simple lack of communication between departments! There are the top end cruise lines where you dont have to pay for any drinks at the bar but that is the minority. There is also a 21-year minimum age requirement for purchasing alcohol on most cruise lines. Everything you purchase is put on to your account so ships are a cashless society however I always take a few dollar bills and leave them as tips. Note:- As of re-reading this book the company I work for has now taken off any discounts in the shops on board for guest entertainers. Requirement of Shows Each cruise line will have different requirements from their Guest Entertainers what I offer is simply a guideline - Length and number of shows I checked the guidelines in the manual for the cruise line I work on and they state that a minimum repertoire of two 30-minute and one 15-minute show is required. On longer cruises it may be necessary to perform three of four 30 minute shows. On the ships I work I have never done two different 30 minute shows rather one full show and a split show with another act or two different 45 minute shows. On the cruise I am on at the moment as of writing this book I am performing two 45 minute shows and a close-up show.
In addition to Blue Man Group the NCL Epic showcased \"Legends In Concert\" which featured impersonated performances by Elvis Madonna Tina Turner Michael Jackson and other \"super-stars\". If you like this sort of thing you will probably enjoy it very much. Otherwise you may find it to be \"OK\" as I did. Another Epic \"first\" is Cirque Dreams and Dinner which is performed by an exceptionally talented group of acrobats in a special theater-in-the-round called the Spiegel Tent. Several of our staff members saw this show and said that it was very good but perhaps a bit too long. My wife and I saw a very different show in the Spiegel Tent. Our 3-year-old granddaughter who we were able to bring with us is a big fan of \"Dora the Explorer\" and \"Diego\" and she just loved the Nickelodeon character breakfast which in addition to Dora and Diego also featured \"Sponge Bob Square Pants\" \"Jimmy Neutron\" and others. In an exclusive deal with NCL the Nickelodeon characters are presently appearing on the Epic and the NCL Jewel (which now sails year-round out of New York City) and will eventually appear on several other NCL ships.
This pending SOLAS implementation date has already started to show up as a primary factor in the asking and selling prices of ships on the market today. SOLAS 2010 also offers a tremendous opportunity for those who may prefer to have a very large houseboat instead of a commercial ship. Ships that are not in compliance with SOLAS 2010 are now selling for a song (inexpensively). A cruise ship can easily be converted into a megayacht with the stroke of a pen. Privately owned yachts not in commercial service and not carrying passengers or cargo for hire are exempt from many of the SOLAS requirements. Operating costs are also lower for a private yacht. It cost less to register flag and insure a private yacht. Megayachts can be flagged and classified for unlimited service. That means that a megayacht can go practically anywhere you want it to go. There is one major drawback to registering a cruise ship as a private yacht.
