Default accomodations

hey everyone- i've heard from a few different crew members about "cabin sharing" where four people share one cabin with two beds and have sleeping schedules- two sleep during the day and two sleep during the night. Anyone know what line(s) this is?

It's called 'hot bunking' and the only place I know it is done anymore is on US Naval Submarines. Not sure but I would imagine that even on older frieghters and steamers they have individual bunks for crew. Never heard of it on a cruiseship.

24 cruises and counting!

i worked in a cruise line for three years my first ship was 14 years old the cabins were not good but my second ship was 3 years old and was perfect every cabin was for 2
you have telephone , tv , fridge and a toilet for each cabin if the ship is new not older than 5 or 6 you will not have any problems just try to find out the age of the ship you are joining to.........

hope could help if u have any question u may ask any time
