Greetings! This site is about cruise line employment. Like a floating city, cruise ships require a wide variety of employees. Compared to other industries, cruise lines have a high employee turnover rate. As a result, they are constantly hiring.
Contrary to what you might have read on other websites, cruise ship jobs are VERY competitive. There is a lot of incorrect information available for free and for sale regarding cruise line employment which makes the process more difficult for you and the industry. The information that follows should start your job search off in the right direction and prevent you from wasting your time.
The process is a little more complicated than simply sending your resume to the cruise lines' Human Resource Department. Many jobs are not even obtained through the cruise line. The following articles will give you the big picture.
The cruise lines are very strict about the job application process. If your application package is incomplete, incorrect or is sent to the wrong person, it will be discarded immediately. There are different procedures and different contacts for different jobs. You must comply with these procedures exactly or you will just end up wasting your time, effort and money.
This is not an attempt to sell you on the idea of working on a cruise ship. It is an attempt to provide you the REAL TRUTH about the employment process and what ship life is like. It is important that you get as much information as possible before committing to a major life change.
