Great place to work with other dedicated co workers from around the globe. There is more than 60 countries that all make up one big DCL family and everyone has the common goal of making the experience the best it can be for all of our guests.
Great company to work for, but living on a ship is not for everyone. Extremely long days and sometimes stressful work environments. But you are surround by a great team made up of people from many different nationalities and you get paid to travel around the world. The Disney brand is second to none and they push you to deliver exceptional service at all times.
Disney company and culture, travel, people
long hours, live at sea for months at a time
I worked as a manager and was paid terribly. Unrealistic goals and everyone is trying climb on each others heads to get promotions. The worst aspect is that the pay is terrible. If you are from a developing country it might not be so bad but nobody from the first world should be working for DLC. Huge hierarchy problem if you are not an officer you are nothing.
Cheap drinks at crew bar. Women were easy.
Terrible directors. Bad pay. Stuck on ship for months.
At DCL they talk about "networking" which is code for hiring/promoting your friends. Absolutely awful management in the contact center. If you want to come to work and just pick up a paycheck, this is great for you. If you take pride in your work and feel like your performance should matter more than who you make friends with, then this is not a great move for you.
Roules are very strict and that's what I liked a lot. There is time for everything - fun, exploring, parties. If you are very good in your job you will be aworded with incentives - free tours, extra time off, etc. Promotions are very hard to be awarded. If you are hard worker and very knowledgeble about your job and you have no wornings chances for you to progress in career are very good. I have started as a assistant server and in few weeks time was a server already. My first contract was 5 month in length and if I would not be given a worning at the end of contract I would become a Head waiter already on begining of my second contract. Also, I did not like klans on the ship. There will be always people pushed to be promoted if they belong to someones klan or if they are good wiht managers. It is only up to you and up to your personality how to override. No metter how hard it is, If you would like to be promoted you have to be carefful not to brake any of the roules and policies.Other wise it was great to work with all those people from different nationalities with some of them still being in the contact.
free lunches, sodas, dicsounts in the stores
contract length, no retirement options, no holidays paid
You will never find anything better than working in the no.1 family cruise line in the world which is Disney Cruise Line. A once and a lifetime experience you will cherish for the rest of your life. And it's the place where dreams come true.

The shifts are long and hard and it can be tiring but overall I love working for DCL and I love everything TWD company stand for. You get to visit many different ports of call and it has shown me how to appreciate time & things in life more greatly.
Free rent, free food, amazing experience & save a lot of money
El trabajar es duro pero vale muy bien la pena es una excelente escuela para crecer laboralmente ya que prácticamente trabajar en tierra en cualquier empresa es más fácil cuando tienen esta experiencia en cruceros. Lo más difícil es entender que no son vacaciones y que no vas a visitar otros países sino por el contrario vas solo de trabajo. Es muy gratificante conocer gente y lugares que lo cual es lo más gratificante; el conocimiento de diferentes lugares, gentes y costumbres, sin duda una experiencia que debes vivir
Experiencia, conocimientos, remuneracion
El estar alejado de la familia por periodos an largos
Its a dream job if you want to save money. I used to work for different brands in cruise industry and Im sure Disney is something special. Best money, benefits and finally, Mickey Mouse is your boss :)
Not for everybody
A normal contract is about 4 months onboard working 7 days a week, 10 hours a day. Disney has a lot of rules and guidelines to follow which is great if you like to know how to do your job properly and enjoy direction; which I do. Advancement and growth onboard feels like it takes forever! But once you have a good leader, they will fight for your next promotion or transfer which will probably take about a year or waiting and another year of only being temporary at that new position. There is good communication onboard with your team because you all literally live and work with each other everyday. Though there is a disconnect at times from shoreside operations. The hardest part is being away from family and living at work. The best parts are the new friendShips from around the world, amazing new adventures, and saving up money.
