Ahoy, Matey! Set sail on the high seas, and get paid!
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Here is the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Applying for cruise ship jobs is not the same as applying for a job on land. The rules are different, the process is complicated and to put it simply, it’s near impossible to do on your own. Without knowing the specific steps involved, cruise lines just won’t notice you and your resume won’t even get a first glance.
Of course, there are “Cruise Agencies” floating around that make some pretty wild claims, such as making guarantees that they’ll get you a cruise ship job within a few weeks. Of course, all you need to do is pay them a ridiculous amount of money first. And unfortunately, the sad fact is that once you part with your money, these agencies often do very little to help you at all.
SO IF YOU WANT TO WORK ON A CRUISE SHIP…
Forget about unofficial cruise ship recruitment agencies.
Forget about paying for access to ‘private’ cruise ship job databases that don’t really exist.
Forget about paying someone who claims to send your resume to 300+ cruise lines.
