My question is that whether working/job on Cruise Ships is allowed or not? (1) Cruise ships have bars and casinos, so if someone works as part of management of the ship not specifically of the bars or casinos, so can working be allowed and income is halal? (2) Chances are that Jumuah prayers will be missed for several weeks or even months, so in this case working is allowed or not?
