Speaking on world class cruise ships is a good gig. Not everyone has the ability to do it. You need to know more about your topic than most other people. You can’t just read a book and claim to have credentials.
At SpeakOnCruises, we can help you with the imposing task of getting selected. Since you found us, we trust you have been through the website and read the blogs. We hold nothing back. OK, enough of the sales job.
Once you are a bona-fide speaker with an assignment, here are five ways you can get follow up assignments. You need to impress you agent with your professionalism and out-right ability. On most ships, you will get rated by all passengers. I think this is very unfair. On a ship with 2,000+ guests, they ALL will rate you (along with the matre’d, housekeeper, waiter, the ventriloquist and the other functions. Seems like only people who heard you should “vote.” You better get an 8 out of 10 or your feedback from the ship to the agency will not be stellar. And surprise, even though the Cruise Director never heard you talk, he (I’ve never heard of a she CD), will give his comments about you to the home office Entertainment Dept.
