This is almost certainly a scam. People working on ships do not work those hours or have those conditions. You should only go via the Cunard.com site and look at employment there. They are using the Cunard address but that number is a mobile phone number and so will not be a real Cunard employee. It should be ignored and avoided...!!!!!
