So, I applied to royal Caribbean cruise lines and been accepted pending a very extensive medical exam as well as my PRC. The trouble is that contracts are six months and the girlfriend doesn't want me to go, not that I blame her but this is something i want to do, and won't get me killed. The pay is 1150 US a month, which per week is the same amount of money that I'm making at my current job, but it also includes my room and board and laundry. So really it's the equivalent of like 2000 a month, in us dollars.
I don't know what to do. Do I go off on this adventure and leave the girl behind and hope the relationship survives or do i say no to a fantastic opportunity?
