I work on a cruise ship – people say it's glamorous but my cabin is tiny and has no windows | The Sun
A CRUISE ship worker has revealed what life is like for staff on board a cruise ship, including how small his cabin is.
Jack Nolan is a musician who performs on board Virgin Voyage cruises and shares footage of the ships on Tiktok.
In a recent video, he gave his followers a tour of his private cabin, showing where he relaxes and how much he manages to fit into his single room.
In the video, Jack (@jackcruisesaround) starts off by saying his cabin is " so small" that he can almost "touch every wall at the same time".
However, he still enjoys having the room, where he can spend some time to himself.
He continued: "It's my own little space, I have storage in here for all my stuff.

"I pack six months of my life into this tiny room and believe me, there's a lot of stuff you need for a cruise ship contract."
As well as a desk area and a sink with running water, Jack shows off his TV, on which he is watching a Premier League match.
He goes on to say that he has "a nice selection of TV channels and films".
The TV also has "cool little LED lights" which are sometimes needed because of how dark it can get in his room.

Jack's cabin is down on deck two, so is "literally under water" and therefore, has no windows.
Jack also shows off his small, yet functioning shower facilities that he has to share with other staff members, which he refers to as a "shoilet" due to how small it is.
Some people were not impressed by what they'd seen, saying they couldn't spend six months at a time living in that room.
One wrote: "I’d get claustrophobic," while another said: "Deck 2 underwater. That’s a hard pass."
However, some thought Jack's room looked pretty luxurious, with one saying: "For a crew cabin that's pretty big, they are usually like a cupboard."
A second added: "You should see single rooms in London, your one goes for £750 per month."
