Sounds amazing! I'd love to do it, but I think my husband and kids might miss me if I was gone for a year

Great report and so pleased you liked Disney Cruises, they're amazing right? We've done 22 and not bored with them yet! You could always apply to work on the ship - 4-6 months on, 2 months off, flights either way paid and because you have your food and lodgings included, you can save loads. We had a friend who started in youth activities, then moved to port adventures and in one year, he saved 10k.

If you choose the Magic or the Wonder, you get to visit some amazing places during the year. The Dream and Fantasy just repeat Bahamas and Caribbean so the M and W are definitely better for sightseeing!
I wouldn't choose F&B on the ships though as although it's a tipped position, it's constant with little down time. Merch is apparently quite good and if you have a language or three, guest services is an option.

Do it!

For anyone who is interested in the CRP though, your post is excellent.
Good luck with whatever you do!

Joa

The information your gave it great but all that is on my mind now is how can US employers pay waiting staff so little and expect them to make the money on Tips. I think its a disgrace and a minimum wage should be a living wage regardless of tips. This is a but like the airlines who publish cheap prices but then expect you to pay for the carry on bag, they know you will as most people do and tipping is the same.
Fortunately its against the law in this country and hopefully that will not change. I want to tip someone when the service is good or excellent and not just because its expected.

I'm amazed at the amount of stuff you did on such poor salary.

You should post this in the trip planning thread to show people just how far you can travel on an 9 an hour job if you put your mind to it and take advantage of the opportunities.

One of my twin daughters has often joked that she fit's the criteria for a Disney Princess (height, eye colour, hair etc).
I've just showed her this post and she is starting to do her homework. She currently works in her sisters restaurant, so has the food and beverage experience.
