After completing massage school, there are many places graduates can choose to work.  Many new massage therapists opt to work in spas or rehabilitations centers.  Working on a cruise ship as a massage therapist may not be the first thing that comes to mind but it can be an interesting career option.  Before deciding to work on a cruise ship, you should weigh the pros and cons.


One obvious perk of working on a cruise ship is traveling for free.  You will be able to see many different vacation destinations without paying the travel expenses.  This may seems like a lucrative opportunity but working on a cruise ship is not the same as being a passenger on a cruise ship.  Massage therapist on cruise ships are can be expected to work as many as ten to twelve hours a day and be gone for as long as six to eight months at a time.  Although you can get off the ship at some ports, you may not have a very long time to explore the destinations.  Working on a cruise ships tends to work best for those who are young, single and don’t have children.  If you are looking to work hard and explore different destinations, becoming a massage therapist on a cruise ship might be the career for you!
