The Best Company Ever
Dining Manager and Maitre D' of Fine Dining (Former Employee), FloridaFebruary 12, 2015
Pros: 8 weeks holidays with no phones to answer or emails to read!!!
Cons: away from family
As the rest of Disney Corporation, the Disney Cruise line is run by dedicated professionals! Dedicate to Disney Culture and most importantly to their employees!! The best senior management that I have worked with and even if it is a large corporation with a long line of hierarchy, the decision making is very fast and efficient. The staff that work/worked there some of the most amazing I have met. The training program and development for all employees (management training included) one of the most efficient I have experienced. The Best!!

Cast Member/Director/Supervisor (Former Employee), Cape Canaveral, FloridaFebruary 4, 2015
Long work days with multiple short breaks. Living with your team, you become a family. I loved everyone I worked with and met. I learned light years faster about life while living on the cruise ship and working with the Disney company. Hardest part of the job is not being able to be in contact with loved ones. Most enjoyably, the relationships I had with everyone I met.

Assistant Bartender & First Responder (Former Employee), Port Canaveral, FlJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: free flights, launches and living expenses
It was great for trainings from other bartenders, every week they would have at lease one training season knowledge from how to make proper types of coffee to how to do a Martini tasting with guest. Everyone I could talk about from beverage team always tried to help each other in anyway possible for eg, cover shift if breaks are need for bathroom etc. Management are nice and always try within there power to help you out with there excessive knowledge to help you reach the goals you are/ they would like you to achieve. Hardest part of the job was picking up stores for the bar. Most enjoyable crew bar Obviously hahaha.

Cook 1 - Demi-Chef de Partie (Former Employee), United StatesAugust 21, 2014
Pros: everything is provided by the company
Cons: very lone hours, we work 12 hours a day
been working for cruise line for 6 years now. and the pressure to be ready for service time is enormous. i started to work as a cook 3 and rose to demi chef in six years. i experienced working in different sections of the hot galley and I'm very willing to learn. working with different nationalities is both fun and challenging, adjusting to each culture and norms. the management in disney are efficient but very strict. rules and regulations are followed to the dot. but they give chance for people to move up.
the hardest part of working in a cruise ship is being away from the love ones. i was very lucky to have met my partner while we were there but we have decided to settle on land to start a family.
I don't have a new zealand work visa for the moment and would appreciate if you could give me a endorsement for that.

Hard work and a lot of hours, but the best company in the US to work for.
Youth Activities Counselor (Former Employee), Orlando, FLAugust 21, 2014
Pros: you do not have to pay for anything unless you want to buy something from the stores.
Cons: long hours, no off days, food is not always that great for crew members
I worked a lot of hours, every day of the week, with no off days. I got to learn a lot about different cultures and how the US operates in different situations. I learned how to be patient and be professional on and off stage, whether it is with guests or fellow staff members. I learned not to complain and be thankful for what you've got and the way you grew up. The management onboard changed every three or four months and some managers are good at being managers where others should not be managers at all. Most of the time management was really good, it is all about how you approach people. The hardest part of the job was working constantly and not being able to have one day off - you had to choose "should I go eat or should I go sleep for an hour" during your break times. I loved working in EDGE with the tweens and being in charge of "our" space. I loved being able to travel and if your schedule allows it, to actually get off on the island and explore for at least an hour.
