It is not easy working 7 days a week, away from your family. If you want to survive life on cruise ships you have to be positive and focus on good things such as tax- free income, lots of new friends and chance to see most beautiful places in the world!
A day at work starts with a meeting and the schedule special cleaning area that we have to do.I learned how to work as team and deal with people from different places.Management sometimes tough but it was fun it depends on how you take them.Work place is always safety first we are well informed on what to do in different situations and well trained in almost every emergency may occur.Hardest part of the job is when debarking the guest and embarking new ones for this is the busies day.enjoyable part is the monthly crew party,free sodas and foods that is especially cook for every nationalities that we have on board.

Personal Vacation Planner (Current Employee) – Miramar, FL – October 1, 2017
The employees at Carnival Cruise Line are very helpful and accommodating. Excellent coaching and training is provided for new employees. Long hours so it can be difficult to adjust work/life balance. The culture is easy-going.
Lots of laughtrers, fun filled, great people, meeting so many different guests, working in all different enviroments, hard working days but very nice social life at nights with all crew and passangers.
It is crazy at times as you work in an industry that is 24/7. The team is about helping you get ahead and does genuinely care about you. They have learning resource center which offers training classes to better yourself.
Junior Hostess (Current Employee) – United States of America – September 26, 2017
Working on a cruise ship requires a fun and energetic individual that has excellent people skills.Traveling the world while giving guests a fun memorable vacation is what we strive for. It is the hardest I have worked, sometimes not even knowing what day of the week it, but I have learned an enormous amount of skills and even more on different cultures. I was lucky enough to have met some amazing people and formed some of the best relationships in my life.
Free accomodaation and meals
Long Hours everyday of the week for 8 months without break
The jobs on cruise line in general are good for young people, who just start their careers and plan to grow with company. However, hours are so long, work is very hard and pay is not that good for lower management position compering to what work they put out.
