It's been widely reported that the starting base "Crew" salary (not entertainers, bartenders etc) is $1.20/hr.

We just got off a b2b on Feb. 3. An officer of the ship told us that the head cabin steward gets paid $75.00 a month US. He and his 2 helpers have 16 cabins to look after (with 2 visits each a day). They depend on receiving that $3.80 per day through gratuities...and then some. We always tip an extra $3.00 a day as they wait on us hand and foot and work very hard. Yes...they get room and board...but really $75.00 a month??? They are also required to sign on for a 9 month contract.

That's what our cabin steward on our most recent Carnival cruise told me. I had no reason to doubt him.

If anyone really ever considers working on a cruise ship, you might want to read this book
