Cruise Ship Jobs Section

Most people spend 8 to 10 hours per day sitting at a desk or commuting to a run-of-the-mill day job close to where they grew up. Why not buck the trend and pursue a job on a cruise ship? That’s right: trade the office environment for an international adventure!

There are more job opportunities than you think! The largest cruise lines operate fleets ranging from 2 or 3 ships to more than 20. And luxury cruise liners need between 500 and 1,200 crewmembers to take care of the ship and its passengers. From bartenders and activity staff to dining room and hotel staff, cruise lines need the widest variety of people.
