Jean-Luc Cerza Lanaux's time on the Parsifal III didn't start well. Even though he found redeeming moments in his friendship with Dani Soares, his rapport with the rest was hardly impressive. In an interview with MEAWW, Jean-Luc dished all about workplace dynamics and how it once impacted him.

Given the high-stress environment yachties work out of, it would be unfair to fault the team leads for nitpicking. Even so, there's a line that needs to be drawn somewhere. From meeting stiff deadlines to living up to guests' endless expectations, there's more than enough work cut out for everyone and at times it may get in the way of leading a regular life, which Jean-Luc acknowledges. However, there was one incident that made things difficult for him.

We asked if yachties were overworked? Jean-Luc said they'd work for 17 hours when they had guests on board and it was "full-on." As he went on to recall his time on the luxury vessel, he pointed towards an incident that happened in the staff dining area.

"I hadn’t taken a break all day I mean all day working my tail off and dinner comes around and I’m finally looking forward to sitting down and eating supper," Jean-Luc recollected and added that before he could finish his meal, chief stewardess Daisy Kelliher stopped him to assign new tasks.

"I couldn’t even finish my meal before Daisy asks me to help with the guests dinner dishes, and I said 'that I would help once I’m done with dinner' and she came back at me with 'so your dinner is more important than the guests' dinner' and got pissed at me." What happened after was something most yachties have experienced in some form or the other.

Jean-Luc decided to keep quiet and get on with the work. He added that the job isn't for everyone and is not easy. "So yachting needless to say isn’t easy and it’s not for everyone. The traveling and expense-free are very appealing to me and some other things but it’s a tough industry that’s not for everyone."
