Do you like to travel and want to help others? One massage therapy career option that is on the rise is becoming a massage therapist on a cruise ship. Many of the high end cruise ships now have elegant spas for passengers to enjoy with gorgeous rooms for massage therapists to work.
Cruisejobfinder.com said, "Cruise line massage therapy jobs often demand long hours. This is particularly true on nights with a formal dinner. When people are getting all dressed up, they tend to like to be pampered as well. This often translates into a relaxing massage. Cruise line massage therapists are generally expected to work twelve hour days. Sometimes there are back to back appointments with very little down time. Usually, you will get one and a half days off. When not on duty, most cruise lines allow you full deck privileges just like the passengers. If you are off duty when in port you are welcome to go ashore. Usually, massage therapists are considered a crew member and are expected to report to the captain."
Typically cruise ships want someone with a lot of experience because their clients only want the best. This being said, the pay is said to be higher than what massage therapists earn on land. You also earn tips from passangers and have the ability to go all over the world.
