I've become idly curious. I've read a little and watched some YouTube vids of people discussing life as a cruise ship musician, and I'm a little sad I didn't try that in my 20s. Here's my question. I'm assuming you'd want to take a good playing but not particularly valuable guitar, but not sure what else. Is backline always provided so all you need is a few pedals, or do you need to bring an amp too? Do some bring more than one guitar? Do you have a secure place you can store your gear? What about your other stuff, say you bring a pricey laptop you depend on for most of your personal life stuff, reading material, etc. Is there a place you can lock that up when you're not around? I don't see me ever doing this type gig, but I can conceive a scenario where due to big and weird life changes it could be an option (and I've grown used to weird stuff happening in my life).
