“It is important when seeking a job in the cruise industry to do lots of research. The Internet is a wonderful tool with lots of information available for the job hunter. You need to learn how to apply, what jobs are available, and what skills are needed for the jobs. When doing your research, determine which job appeals to you. Don’t just send in an application for ‘any position available’. The cruise line will think that you are only looking for fun and not take your application seriously. Try to match your skills and interests to a specific job on a ship”. Linda Garrison – About
“A cruise ship is said to have in its employ about 500 at the least and 1,500 at the most in terms of crew staff and support groups. If the continuous boom in the shipping industry will be maintained, the major projections from cruise ship companies will result to additional 5 to 10 new luxury sea vessels that will ply the seas each year. At 5 new ships needing manpower at the very least figure of 500 per ship, that will be additional 2.500 new cruise ships jobs every year to fill in”.
