    In monitoring specialist newsgroups and lists for some years,
      I sometimes see a note of this kind: which offers no insight into
    the available skill set, experience, or age of the questioner, yet will
      entertain only "Professional" responses.
    
    Here is what I can say frankly is a non-professional response.
    
    If Craig has skills as a waiter, he could probably wait on a cruise
    ship, and enquire from people on the spot as to the next step.
    Or like me, he could acquire a General Commercial Radio Op
    license with Radar endorsement, and try for a crew position.
      He could call a cruise company or a shipping line.
    
    I remember speaking to one or two people who got it into their head
    they would like to work a ship, so they went where the ships were,
    and hunted for a job - successfully. This seems like the appropriate
      way - but that's just speculation, of course.
    Hope it helps a little. It certainly does not hurt to hang out with
    people in the line you'd like to try. Specially if you are pleasant!
    :-)
