I haven’t heard of anyone who gets paid to live on a ship and deliver cruise ship seminars as their job.

It’s usually – cruise for free for two minus agent fees. Unless you can hook up directly with a cruise line. We do that. But not always.

But if/when you do get on a cruise ship to lecture, deliver a seminar or just offer up some old-fashioned infotainment, there is one quality  that will serve you well – timeliness.

There are 2 considerations.

1. Start on time. Show up early. There are so many things that can go wrong. Nothing will beat having time on your side to resolve such issues. My last cruise, the little ship helper bee showed up just moments before I was to go on. I had everything lined up and ready to go so I when the second hand hit the top of the hour, I was on my way.

2. End on time. Cruisers put themselves on a schedule. After you comes bingo or shuffleboard or a movie or spa treatment. Even there is nobody following you, who’s to say that someone/s in your audience don’t have someplace they want to be. And they don’t really feel like they can just walk out

Start on time and end on time.
