a Pinnacle member told me it would be June 20...but things change so I will look forward to your confirmation of when the rotation will take place, June 13 or June 20

 

Sorry - June 20th is correct date.

As shown below, Captain Frank started his rotation (Master in Charge) on 4/19/15 and will be on board for 10 weeks unless he and Captain Aris have made other arrangements. Captain Aris is currently on vacation.

So do Captains get 10 weeks ,10 weeks off? Funny that all of the officer corps is not on the same rotation.

That is typical for Captains, but they can vary it a bit with the cooperation of their fellow Captain.

Yes, they work 10 weeks and then they are off for 10 weeks. This can change and the Captains can work out their own vacation schedule, but if that happens the variation is a week or two.

 

Other Officers on board are on a longer schedule because they aren't under the same amount of stress that the Master of the ship is.:D

This 1:1 rotation (= working time and time off is the same) applies to all officers in the deck and engine department (= nautical officers on the bridge and technical officers for the engine) so not just to the Captain.

 

For the hotel department including all officers in this department the rotation system is less favourable and for the officers 2:1 or 3:1 (4-6 months on and 2 months off).

Not a bad work schedule, stressful yes but the time off is sweet. How much do officers make roughly? Does the cruise industry pay more, less or even with container ships?

On Anthem right now, Captain Claus finishes rotation at end of this cruise June 13th

 

So pleased that we had Claus on our trip. He is irreplaceable. We looked forward to his announcements every day, just put a big smile on our faces. We just couldn't wait to put the face to the name so were delighted when he joined for pictures on day 8. What a pleasant man he is. I never cared about captains before, but we really felt that the Anthems without Claus wouldn't feel right.

Love Captain Claus. He was Captain Cowboy to us on NV. Very friendly! Miss him!

This depends on the company and the flag state. In past days with European flag and respectively binding tariff agreements salaries were higher in general. Now highest payments and best working schedules and benefits are provided by the oil and off-shoring business I believe. There are few companies left who still provide a 1:1 schedule, this applies to container and cruise lines. Salarywise you can find some orientation if you google for existing tariff agreements.

I'm sorry, how does this work? I noticed that there's two captains for each ship. I'm on the Adventure in September and would love to have Henrik again, but I also see Toni.

They both are assigned to a particular ship. They usually work 10 weeks and 10 weeks are off..... it could vary if one needs to be off for a little longer period.

So when you see the name of the captain and "started rotation" - that is when that particular captain started his duty on the ship ...... so 10 weeks later the other captain will take over.
