Question BMI requirements for celebrity, carnival etc

Hi all,

Can somebody please post the specific BMI limit for each cruise line, as required in the medical tests? In particular celebrity.

Many Thanks,

Sarah (UK)

Hi,

Not sure what you are talking about? I never heard of a "specific BMI limit" for each cruise line.
I dont recall doing this for my test. Can you elaborate further, is that something you were advised you will be tested for??

Attended a group interview thing for carnival a few months ago. We were specifically told that for the medical exam we need to be within a "healthy" BMI range (I think based on the general standard which is like 18.5-25), and to be aware of this if we think we might be outside of it (implying might want to do something about it if we are)... However, I have seen a few pictures of employees in which I wonder if they are in this stated "healthy" range, so I'm not sure how strict they are. I would imagine because you can still be considered "fit for duty" by the examining doctor even if a bit outside the range.

BMI (Weight (kg) /Height (m)) is the most ridiculous formula (imho) of determining a part of a person's health.

You can have a short stocky powerhouse muscular guy with a high BMI.

Ok cool thanks for clarifying. Didn't have that with RCCL but perhaps they will add it as well.

I know crew members who are clearly not within any kind of healthy BMI. I have seen quite a few overweight crew, not large numbers, but I can recall maybe around ten men and women on a contract who were very overweight and three that would fall into Obese category. Small numbers in total, for a crew of 1500 odd.
Personally if someone is not in good shape and fit, I wouldn't recommend they work on a cruise ship. The combination of lack of sleep/disrupted sleep, not particularly healthy food and a lot of alcohol is not a good combo health wise. I've seen a few sad cases with crew members who didn't look after themselves.

Cool BMI List

I'm wondering the same thing. I read somewhere that NCL has a max of 40 but I can't find the link.

BMI is a really unfair system. I do physical labor at my current job and work long hours. I usually work 10-15 hours each shift, doing everything from loading trucks to setting up everything needed for our events. I've literally worked a 20 hour shift before.

I work in full service catering for the top caterer in the city. Sometimes we have events for as many as 1500 guest and I'm a supervisor. It would really be helpful to know these things before going in for the test.

My BMI is about 33. I exercise every day and I like my size. If anyone could answer this it would be greatly appreciated!!!
