Cruise lines pride themselves on their world-class dining room service, which means lots of jobs for chefs, galley cooks, wait staff, and hosts and hostesses (photo courtesy of Delta Queen Steamboat.)
There are plenty activities on board a cruise ship that require skilled instructors and trainers (photo courtesy of Princess Cruises.)
Working in food service is one of just many entry-level jobs that offer good benefits and a great work environment.
Activities staff get to mingle and play games with the ship’s guests. It’s almost like getting paid to have fun!
