Erica DePascale has traveled to 72 countries in more than six years while working and living on cruise ships.
In one of her viral TikToks, DePascale gives a peek into her room aboard the ship.
She revealed that crew members share a 120-square-foot windowless space and can request to bunk with a friend.
The two crew members have single bunk beds each fitted with a private TV screen and curtains for privacy and their own bathroom that features a small shower, toilet and sink.
She admitted that the biggest “deal breaker” for some is the limited storage and closet space.
“Now the closet space I think is a deal breaker for some people out there, but for me, I got used to it over the years,” DePascale explained.
“You can comfortably fit about eight to 10 outfits if you know how to hang things correctly.”
Crew members also get three tiny drawers and a small safe to lock away their valuables.
“It’s kind of like adult camp or college, whatever you want to call it,” DePascale said.
The Post reached out to DePascale for comment.
She revealed to Insider that crew members in higher positions have better cabins and are treated to daily housekeeping services.
Cruise employees enjoy their own separate buffet, parties and game rooms and are even granted access to private spaces guests are prohibited from entering — including private sun decks at the front and back of the ship.
For those who want to live at sea, but don’t feel like earning their keep or shelling out their life savings, cruise ship line Storylines will set sail with its “affordable” residential cruise ship in 2026.
Storylines’ debut ship boasts suites with one to four bedrooms, as well as studios and a few two-story penthouses, ranging from $400,000 to an eye-popping $8 million.
The vessel, dubbed the MV Narrative, also features 20 restaurants and bars, a microbrewery, three swimming pools, a bowling alley, a movie theater, a spa, a solar-powered hydroponic garden, and a 10,000-book library and education program for children.
Storylines is a steal compared to other sea-faring communities, such as The World, where quarters cost up to $15 million for purchase, plus annual ownership costs, or the 721-foot superyacht Somnio, where condo units start at $11 million.
Launching in 2024, Somnio has billed itself “the only residential superyacht in the world.”
