PLEASE NOTE: PLEASE RESPOND TO ALL QUESTIONS
Have you ever worked on an expedition vessel?

How long was the expedition?
If no, would you ever consider working an expedition trip?
If yes, where would you like to go or visit again?
If yes, how long would you consider going for?
It is the 'rich and (in)famous' that more often than not have the financial means to own and use the yachts we work on. It certainly should be a given that the discretion of the crew is paramount to the comfort of the guests. A confidentiality agreement goes a long way to reinforce the behaviour that should be expected of the crew. However, if crew cannot abide by that policy, then they should seek an alternative career.
For people on the dock asking question about who owns the vessel is one thing (annoying enough, but they don't know any better), but for other yachties to come up to me and comment on who owns the boat I'm on is out of line. They should know about confidentiality.
