About me

Dear reader,

As you are interested in finding out “the true story” behind working on a cruiseship, you are likely to want to know who wrote it..

Cruise 16So; Hi, I am Daan. A Dutch guy, who was 22 years old when he decided that working on a cruiseship would be an awesome job!

I studied a fast track sports education, with a major in Military sports training and swimming. Minors in Fitness and running. Got my Personal Training certificate a year after graduating school. Worked for about 1.5 years at 2 different gyms before applying with Steiner. After my sports education, I studied full time Leisure Management, of which I finished my associate degree a month before I joined Steiner. I had already decided this would be a temporary thing, as I had my mind set on finishing my bachelor. After a full contract on DCL (Disney Cruise Line) I went back to University and am currently in Malaysia doing research with a outdoor theme park. After graduation, I am open to any suggestions that would involve more travel in rapid changing environments.


My goal in life is to experience life to it’s fullest (Cheesy, yes), but this involves world travel, some amazing jobs, big companies and international culture experiences.


So for the foreseeable future I will maintain this website to educate people on a decision that might become the best one you’ve ever made. What ever you choose, I wish you an amazing life, with happiness, love and challenges that will help you grow.





PS, I you have any questions, please post them on to one of the pages (the FAQ for example), you can ask me anything you want. If it is very private, email me via this website, but I can assure you I am a pretty open guy, so do not worry. Looking forward to your message. Not affiliated with Steiner in any way, what so ever! Just a previous employee.

    1. Hi Mark,

      Please read trough the website. You dont get into most cruiselines on your own. The biggest company for PT’s is Steiner. And 2nd; Canyon Ranch.

      Good luck,

  3. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but
    looks great in Opera. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?
