Not for the faint hearted

The pay is excellent, the work is demanding and constant. But this taken into account if you can do this, you’ll learn a lot about yourself. No mistakes, no mercy, it’s a well oiled machine. Try it is the experience of a lifetime.

Pros

Good pay, excellent training, long vacation time, free food and board

Cons

Long hours, long time away from home, not for everyone

Increíble experiencia pero mucho trabajo

Trabajar en un barco fue una de las experiencias más increíbles de mi vida. Las instalaciones del Disney Dream son preciosas y al trabajar cara al público, podría disfrutar de casi todas ellas en mi tiempo libre. Podía ir a la piscina, el cine, el teatro... aunque hay otros puestos de trabajo a los que no se les permite acceder a las zonas designadas para los Guests.Es importante el trabajo en equipo pero también se crea un ambiente muy competitivo porque hay pocas opciones de ascender de puesto y todos aspiran a ello para ganar más o tener cabinas individuales.Las cabinas en general son compartidas y muy pequeñas, los horarios son largos y difíciles. La seguridad a bordo es muy importante así que imparten muchas clases obligatorias que me parecían aburridas y repetitivas.Lo peor de mi experiencia fue que el itinerario de mi barco incluía sólo tres puertos así que después de casi un año decidí dejar la compañía porque mi ilusión era viajar y descubrir el mundo, pero me parecía demasiado aburrido ver siempre lo mismo. Demasiado trabajo para tan poco tiempo de disfrutar.El wifi es extremadamente caro, lo cual me hizo pasar mucho tiempo leyendo en la biblioteca.

Pros

Entorno de trabajo, comida incluida, uniforme limpio

Cons

Wifi caro, mucho trabajo, poco tiempo libre

Stressante ma appagante

Siate pronti a lavorare 12/14 ore al giorno senza interi giorni liberi. Ambiente competitivo che da credito al merito. Meglio lavorate più possibilità di fare in fretta carriera avrete. Bell'ambiente, d'altronde è Disney. Ottimi Benefit (es. Entrata gratuita ai parchi per la famiglia dei dipendenti)

Pros

Salario, ambiente, benefit

Cons

Stress, stanchezza perenne

DCL work place

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.

Pros

free lunches, sodas, dicsounts in the stores

Cons

contract length, no retirement options, no holidays paid

No tienen personal de supervisión latinos lo cual dificulta tener una buena relación laboral

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

Pros

Experiencia, conocimientos, remuneracion

Cons

El estar alejado de la familia por periodos an largos

Not horrible

The job itself is fine and if you have a good manager then you will be fine. The benefits package is pretty great. But, you're just another body in a seat.

You work for 83 hrs a week, get paid over time which is good in a way. Became a certified Disney Trainer. The hardest part of the job was the long hours

They take great care of both guest and employees.

It was a once in a life time opportunity. Thrilled to have been chosen. They paid for all my food and housing. They paid for me to go to Toronto Canada for a month to train. Disney cruise line is amazing.

Pros

Free housing, food, plane tickets, 5 star activities, healthcare.

Cons

Going to Nassau.
