    Can't tell you, Midnight. Well, I could, but then I'd have to kill you :p

    I've been quoted between 10k and 12k per person, for the full three months.

    Sound about right?

    Unless it's a shed load of money - and I mean a shed load I'd avoid like the plague. I know a lot of people that work on some of the biggest ships, both as techs and acts - and aside from the fact it's only a couple of hours in the afternoon at showtime and a repeat again in the evening - so therefore a very easy life - it's a otherwise a dull, boring, repetitive existence only slightly compesated for by the fact you get to see nice places. Unless you want a string of affairs, one night stands and a divorce that is.
