Last week, I shared with you what it’s like to be a cruise ship DJ – how it differs fro other types of DJing, and the particular challenges of playing to a disparate yet fixed audience for each seven day holiday cycle in your typically month-long contract. This week I’m going to share with you some hard-won advice, tips and tricks both for landing a cruise ship DJing role, and for making the most of it once you have.
I’ve DJed on three cruise ships for four separate stints as a “celebrity guest DJ”. For me, it’s been a great experience to travel the world and meet people from so many different places. This week – in part one of this two-part guide – I’m going to reveal for you in detail what it’s like to be a cruise ship DJ.
