The problem with a Vessel of this size is...
The Captain is the Ships' Manager.
Navagator supervises the skippers on the upkeep and the navagator is also the flight engineer...technician, Mechanics consultant. He has to know everything.
The Cook is a Host. He gets to mingle with the Guests. One Skipper is also his assistant. The Captains quarters are complete with his office off the port side of the state room. He has his bedroom..so does the Nav, and cook. Skippers use bunks.
Skippers work interval watches of (3) 8 hour shifts always two at a time. If a Skipper gets ill...they work 12's. 4/4/4/4/4/4.
It is a rough living but the budget for staff is over 200,000/year.
You go through skippers....
