Learn how to go about working in the cruise industry, life on board a ship, what to expect, how much money you can earn, how to get your DVD in front of the right agent or cruise line, and a bonus chapter of some of Paul's pet magic routines from his act. Learn facts about ships and ship life and details about day-to-day life as a Guest Entertainer on a ship (the good times ... and the not-so-good times). Plus, in a further effort to share the richness that a career in cruise ship entertainment might offer, Romhany has included beautiful photos from around the world, and even excerpts from his very own personal journal --which draw the reader into this fascinating world and illustrates the author's very own life on board ship in ways which most other authors might not be willing (able) to share. Included are up-to-date web addresses, a glossary of ship terms and cruise ship contact information that will surely accelerate the learning curve for those that have the true spark, desire, and talent to pursue launching their career as a successful cruise ship entertainer. For more seasoned entertainers, this guide should also prove both interesting and informative.
