    so were you just serving........  that sounds like a whole lot of fun, the ship isn't moving around is it?

    1. camlo profile image89
      camloposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Of course it's moving. Before the guests arrived, I cleaned all the windows from the outside of the ship, lower and upper deck. The ship wasn't moving then, of course, because that could be dangerous for me ...

      1. Joy56 profile image77
        Joy56posted 7 years agoin reply to this

        i thought it was static..... so how far do you travel.  sounds like a great job to me.  Well not cleaning the windows, but the ship and all... Jobs like that must be hard to come by.

          camloposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Yes, it is a fun job. On a short tour like tonight, we just cruise up and down the Rhine in the Cologne area. But we also do longer tours - from Cologne to Linz (Germany), or to St. Goar, or Boppard etc. Tomorrow I'll be working at a wedding on a ship called the Moby Dick from Bonn. On Sunday we'll be doing a series of transfer trips between Cologne and Leverkusen. Most of next week we'll be just doing our usual round trips in Cologne.
          The job found me.
          The School Ship where I go to college between January and April is static.

            aha i did not realise there were two ships......... the job found you, it just sailed along like.......... wedding tomorrow, wow.    Can u post a picture of the ship.  You should write a hub about your job, it is very interesting.

            1. camlo profile image89
              camloposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              I actually work on four different ships, not including the School Ship. They're all small ships, but large enough to be called ships, although not made for high sea. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post pictures of them without permission. Anyway, I'll ask my boss, and if I can write a Hub, I'll include pictures. You could look in Google Images for the MS Moby Dick in Bonn. That's the one I'll be on tomorrow.
              Yes, the job found me. I was working for an employment agency, was sent to one of the ships, and the boss decided to keep me permanently.

                I am insanely jealous...... I cannot see that you boss would mind as it is promoting his business. I will look at the ship

                  It looks like a whale.
                  Not that I would anyway, but my boss doesn't like us wearing our uniforms outside of work, because such things aren't always good publicity - like people going to the pub and getting drunk in their uniforms. I think he'd prefer to know in which context I'm showing the pictures.

                  1. Joy56 profile image77
                    Joy56posted 7 years agoin reply to this

                    tell him you are writing an article on hub pages about your job.  You have been requested to do it, and that millions of people will be reading it, and it will be free publicity for him........ He will probably give you a rise.

            Just looked at your profile, and see you actually have 497, not 498 as it says on your statistic here - one of those ghosts.
            Yes, I often get followed by new Hubbers who go on following sprees. They usually unfollow me when I don't follow back, which I never do nowadays.
