There is a probationary period of 90 days during your first contract on a cruise ship If your performance is not to company’s standards you will be send back home. One more thing, each month there is a deduction of your salary for an airplane ticket, meaning that the flight back home is at your expense.

This is what Royal Caribbean International says in their Getting Onboard Workbook

As a new employee, you will be placed on a probationary period when you first join the company. This period will include your first 90 days on the job when working for Royal Caribbean International, Azamara Cruises and Celebrity Cruises The Company may end your employment at any time during this period if you perform your job duties below expected standards.
