I’ve always had trouble sleeping on any type of transportation – I’m usually way too excited to sleep if I’m moving at all relative to the surface of the earth, or sea in this case! Trying to fall asleep on a ship was especially difficult – being the nerd I am, even the variations in the omnipresent vibration throughout the ship was something I wanted to pay attention to, and when we started rolling I couldn’t get over the novel feeling that my bed was on a rollercoaster for young children. Somehow the entire effect was both unsettling and soothing at the same time. One night early throughout the trip I woke up to realize we were rolling more than I’d experienced so far. I grabbed my phone to film the objects sliding around on my desk and the curtains swinging back and forth. The dark and blurry film ends with the objects flying off the end of my desk from my perspective as I jump out of bed trying to catch them. I started leaving my laptop on the floor after that night. In my first few days I was completely enthralled by the case of the ‘wandering water bottles’ as I liked to call them. After several times coming back to my cabin and finding that the waterbottles I’d been given had moved from where I put them simply due to the vibration of the ship (we weren’t rolling at this point), I set up my camera on a tripod to catch their movement in 2-5 minute increments. I told a couple of the officers about my experiment – they thought it was funny how excited about it I was, and teased me about there being ghosts on the ship.

It seems that management is not checking and validating if work load is still within the capacity of the employee.

Culture, particularly office politics, is one of the worst I’ve seen.

.. Everyday is a tough day, works early yet cannot go home on time.
Even on break time, holidays, or even on your scheduled leave you will have to work. A place full of challenges and stress yet a fun place to work.

i learned that every mood is special during work and very special when it comes to dignity..


about the management is okay normal typical agents giving special attentions to their employees..


workplace culture it's a common in every galley/kitchen but specialties comes out on different spots of religions and nationalities...


every job is hard, it's only difference to others is that you are on the sea, fighting your way through the biggest waves of water... but it's worth it...


most enjoyable part are when tide, storms, everything is dancing including your tools specially your self too.. also when reaching a port and go offshore...
Pros
free meals, less effort on going to work and easy to save money
Cons
unavoidable fights with your crews

My work as a seaman was productive. Although I am missing my family so much, I have learned so much in the engine works of a vessel. The most enjoyable part of the job was the getting together of the crewmen during occassions in the Philippines. We too celebrate it on board and the captain of the ship always sees to it that we enjoy every bit of it because he also knows how it is to work at sea. Thank you.
Pros
Free everything aside from the high salary
Cons
Miss family so much
