My employers who have been struggling with finances for awhile now just announced that they are going on a cruise for Spring Break and they would like me to come. This is what they said, "we would like you to come." I have never been on a cruise before but I get the feeling it could be stifling. Has anyone every cruised with their employers? We would be flying to Florida and cruising from there for an 8 day cruise and then flying back. This would eat up two weekends I would normally not be working and I am guessing a lot of extra hours. For accommodations, we would have connecting rooms, both at the hotel and on-board. I am told the rooms are "favorable, with balconies and the best amenities." It's a standard Norwegian Cruise ship, so I am curious what "favorable and best" mean. 1) Can I ask? 2) I normally work a 9 hour day. What do I charge for hours over 9? 3) What do I charge for overnights & being away from my life/friends/family? 4) What do I charge for each weekend day? My normal weekly salary is $745/cash.
