Senior Wine Steward (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 15, 2018
It is really is hard work, working on the cruise ships, the hours are long, but you do get time off when the ship is in port for you to go ashore. Crew life is amazing, the parties are great, as are the majority of the crew, but in digress... If I could have my time again it would be working here.
Administration Officer (Former Employee) – Santa Clarita, CA – May 8, 2018
Great Company, a lot of hours at work but great team to work with. Learned a lot about Hotel Department and about the cruise ship in general, hardest part of the job being away from the family for 6 months
Nice chance to see the world but hard working enviroment
video producer (Current Employee) – Miami-Dade County, FL – May 2, 2018
Videography is just a part of your main duties. Working with Princess Cruises you will get a chance to see a lot pf places but your schedule will be unpredictible and sometimes they will require from you to do stuff which aren't a part of your duties according to the contract. Management are not always professional and fair.
Assistant Store Manager Fragrance and Cosmetics (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 26, 2018
Princess Cruises line is a very good company to work for. The working hours are long and vey long especially in a sea day , but to have the opportunity to go out and visit the places is the most rewarding felling at the end of the day and at the end of the contract. I've work for cruise line industry for 14 years and I'm very honored to say that I've seen the world , even Antarctica.
free accomodation, free food, free entertaiment for crew.
short breaks, not accomodating married couples, having ti share a canbin with a stranger
Cruise Vacation Planner (Current Employee) – Valencia, CA – April 26, 2018
Well it's a great company all around, the environment is very relaxing. In my position though I didn't feel as rewarded in my base salary for the amount of work I did on a daily basis and for what I had to do. Do wish that gets better.
Shore Excursions Manager (Former Employee) – Santa Clarita, CA – April 24, 2018
I was Tour Manager and loved every second of my 11 years with Princess Cruises. Loved the job in and out the office and the relationships with the Tour Operators. I learnt a lot in terms of customer service and revenue. It was amazing meeting more than 40 different nationalities. There was no hard part of my job because I used to do it with love and everything was easy also because I love challenges.
Reservations Support Agent (Former Employee) – Santa Clarita, CA – April 18, 2018
Very stressful, was time on going to bathroom or to get a drink of water, penalized if was a 1 minute late to get back on phone. The training was to enough need to re plan training classes more training is needed. Colleague and other employees agreed that the training needs to be better and longer.
It was really a great experience to work on the company. i travel around the world and working as well.
Commis Chef (Current Employee) – United States – April 18, 2018
Working in Cruise line is not that easy as some people know. We have a difficult time culture everyday for the whole contract of 9months on board. 12hours of working a day and 7days a week. In short we dont have a day off. Only time-off maximum of 6hours once in a blue moon.
Administrative Office Clerk (Former Employee) – Santa Clarita, CA – April 17, 2018
In any of the departments I worked for no matter what or how long was the project the day went by and you don't mind the work load and management were always in professional and a good mood and very helpful.
2nd Cook (Former Employee) – Manila – April 8, 2018
Working in the cruise ship is not easy especially were far from our family. I experience all circumtances regarding having a bad weather in the sea . Safety is the priority at all times. I actually developed my knowledge of cooking at the cruise ship. Starting from assistant cook to Chef de Partie position.
Lack of care for employees, lack of company vision and organization
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 6, 2018
Culture lacks trust and care. Leadership values shareholders over employees, consistently cutting benefits and increasing demands while posting enormous profits. Employees are all about themselves, pretending to collaborate on the surface while undercutting each other behind closed doors.
Company never stays on a consistent direction, always trying to experiment with "the newest thing" without sticking to any one clear vision. Leadership recklessly spends money on new, untested ideas without any checks and balances. Anytime someone 'director and below' tries to speak up or bring a new idea to the table, they are immediately quashed by the executive level.
Suppressing company culture, lack of autonomy, low salary
last position ASSISTANT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Santa Clarita Los Angeles – April 6, 2018

Network Engineer I (Former Employee) – Valencia, CA – April 5, 2018
I thoroughly enjoyed working for Princess Cruises. Collaboration and workplace culture is great. Management encourages employees to learn different types of networking devices. Hardest part of the job is keeping up with the technology. Most enjoyable part of the job is building relationship with co-workers and contractors and able to see the world.
