Q. HOW DO I GET PAID?

A. Each staff member receives a Visa debit card by Ocean Pay where you can access money via ATMs and transfer funds on line. Salaries are automatically credited to accounts. The debit card can be used to withdraw money from an ATM machine or pay at any venue that accepts credit or debit cards. Pay cycles vary from cruise line to cruise line, but typically occur bi-weekly or monthly. Another benefit of the Ocean Pay savings account is that money can be wired into a savings account.

Q: WHAT ABOUT CALLING HOME AND WI-FI?

A: Calling family and friends has become easier over time, and on many ships you can call home from the comfort of your cabin. Costs are very reasonable.
