Cruise Ship Work – would it suit you?
Built to operate like floating 5* hotels, Cruise Ships require, in every Department, thousands of dedicated, hard-working, qualified staff. In fact, the next few years will show a continued increase in the number of cruise ships operating, which will create an increase jobs available. Together with the normal high turnover rate on board cruise ships, this means new personnel from Canada are always being recruited.
Cruise jobs are always subject to contract, so it is important to consider all the pros and cons before accepting a position on board.
All employees are on shifts, with long hours. It is definitely not a vacation, and workers have no access to the leisure/dining facilities etc which available to the paying passengers. It is hard work on board a cruise ship.
However there are perks to the job. Of course you will get to travel the world for free, whilst earning a salary. Free medical care, accommodation and meals will also be provided for the duration of your contract.
