Former Child Star at Work on Cruise Ship
"He is greeting guests, hosting VIPs and so forth," the spokesman told AOL Travel News. "He acts as a social host for daytime and night-time activities, introducing shows and interacting with guests throughout the day, and he'll sit with passengers for dinner."
Aames, who turns 50 on Thursday, starred as "Tommy" in the hit show Eight is Enough in the 1970s, and "Buddy" in Charles in Charge in the 1980s. More recently he appeared on VH1's reality show Broke and Famous, talking about hard times including his divorce and the foreclosure of his house.
He joined the cruise line in March, and has been training onboard the Nautica, the spokesman said. The ship is currently cruising in the Mediterranean.
The story of Aames' new career broke in the National Enquirer, with the former actor telling the gossip publication in the current issue, "I'd hit rock bottom and now I'm back on top."
He also tells the Enquirer he is almost done with his training and loves spending time with guests on the ship.
"I've never felt better," Aames says.
