"Every time someone asks me about a cruise ship gig, the first thing I tell them to do is to hit up my buddies Sam and Fede, and they'll take care of everything else. "
Never having worked for a cruise ship band before, I was very confused and in the dark about everything I needed to do and who I needed to speak to about possibly working on one. When I was introduced to Federico and Sam at Lime Entertainment, all my worries vanished. They made sure to point me in the right direction from the very first email. Everything from forms, applications, and medical exams, to scheduling an audition around my time, and finally putting me on a ship around the time that I had requested (which was ASAP and got on a ship within two weeks of passing the audition and turning everything in).
Not only did they help me with everything beforehand, they also checked in periodically to make sure everything was going well, and were totally open to questions/comments/concerns. Ironically enough, the band members I was paired with were also good friends with them, and as a result the band chemistry came quickly and friendship immediately ensued. Not only did Fede and Sam make sure that I was taken care of as an employee of the company, but I also gained two good friends that always pointed me in the right direction with comfort and trust.
Every time someone asks me about a cruise ship gig, the first thing I tell them to do is to hit up my buddies Sam and Fede, and they'll take care of everything else.
Thank you, Sam, Fede, and Lime for allowing me the opportunity to work with some super talented and professional folk!
