Super Fun work place with excellent detail on professionalism
Server Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJune 3, 2016
I would advise anyone to work for this wonderful company. You will be working with the Best professionals in the service industry. A typical day is nothing like the day before and you will Learn every step of the way. Management is kind and very in tuned to the needs of the company and the Workers. Co worker Vary in age with all type of Backgrounds. The Hardest part of the Job is going Home at night because the atmosphere of family is very prevalent and the most enjoyable part of the job is greeting guest from all around the world, striking up interesting conversations with CEO's and Business leaders of Reputable company's. Prom season is the best time to Sharpen up on what you've learned throughout the season. This is an amazing company to work for.
Pros
Ice cream, Wine Tastings, Fun events for Staff
Cons
Eventually you have to go Home.

Great work place but be prepared to miss family time!
Server (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAMay 23, 2016
I love working here! It is an awesome work place with many opportunities to advance. The only problem is major holiday's are REQUIRED for EVERYONE so be prepared to miss Mother's Day and Fourth of July with your family, you can FORGET it.It is also alot of drama on the boat seeing as though there are alot of young people who work there. You also get NO breaks you are constantly on your feet but you honestly get paid to host a giant party you can dance with your guest and honestly help them have a good time!
Pros
Advancement opportunities, Fun atmosphere, and Great people
Cons
No breaks, holidays REQUIRED, college drama, and mean co workers

Having fun at work while working hard
Deckhand (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 9, 2016
Working on a boat can be challenging to some people. Weather and the natural rocking motion of a boat can make people sea sick. But others like the workers at Entertainment Cruises make it not only their job, but their passion.
Working long shifts sounds painful to some, but at this job, it means you get to have fun, make money, meet new people, and work in the greatest city in the United States, Chicago Illinois. My personal favorite part of the job was the feeling of making 80 people scream at the top of their lungs which would be the only way to get the boat to go fast and for them to have an amazing experience.

Hostess/Server (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 21, 2015
A typical work day is interacting with guests making them the first priority. I learned about being apart of a team and a culture that is always followed. The hardest part of the job is making sure that everything you do has a positive effect on your team members and the guests.

Some of the staff are bias in my opinion. There are different people you encounter on a daily basis and I like to meet and greet the new staff and customers that board the vessels.

Fun days at work with NYC skyline as your view everyday. Co-workers are like a close tight knit family. We all looked out for each other. Hardest part of the job is the weather and being outdoors.
