What It’s Like To Work As A Cruise Ship DJ

Of all the different types of DJs out there, few probably enjoy their job as much as the cruise ship DJ.  Most mobile DJs or club DJs have had the stressful experience of loading up gear and preparing for a long sets in seedy environments.  The club might be fast paced and exciting, but it’s also filled with unruly drunk dancers and a serious lack of oxygen.


Obviously, a cruise ship has perks that neither the club nor a house can provide.  Exotic locations and cruise ship amenities are a few to speak of.  Of course, this doesn’t mean it’s an easier job.  Being stuck on a ship for a month at time requires some serious preparation – and an understanding that your crowd is not the typical clubbing group.
