& it’s a wrap! Successfully completed my 5th DJ contract with Royal Caribbean International.
I can officially say I’ve lived on a cruise ship for a total of 20 weeks lol. So many times I’ve tried to convey what the experience is like, but it’s almost impossible.
There are days that feel like an eternity, where I miss my friends and family more than I can even explain. Followed by nights of unappreciative, rude guests that bark requests at you. BUT there are also days that I wish would never end, where I get to spend time in some of the most beautiful places, with some absolutely incredible people. Followed by nights where guests sit back and enjoy the ride, showing their appreciation with high-fives, fist bumps, and the frequent “OHHHHH!!!!” when I mix into the next track.
Did I mention I DJ just about EVERY night for 4 straight weeks? Fortunately, I love what I do. Every night I challenge myself to do it again, do it better, and do it differently than I did the night before.
Not sure if this will be my last contract or not, but these 20 weeks have left a significant mark on my life. The ups, the downs; I’m grateful for it all.
Real question is: What adventure is next?
