There are plenty of advantages in working for a cruise line. Think about it… travel, adventure, romance and a steady paycheck! There are more than 300 types of jobs aboard a modern day cruise ship. Imagine yourself travelling to places you've only ever seen on tv, and getting paid for it! That’s what Paul did.
Cruise ships are floating hotels, often called cities at sea. So you’ll find all the positions you’d expect in a shoreside resort, from Hotel Manager to Receptionists. Most lines have state-of-the-art spas, salons and fitness centres too, hiring stylists, aromatherapists, massage therapists and fitness instructors. If entertainment is your passion there are plenty of different opportunities for performers, novelty acts, musicians, singers and dancers.
However, even if you’re not sure as to what your strengths are, or you want to be an actor or a tv presenter, then you could become a member of the Cruise Staff (a little bit like being a Red Coat at Butlins), a Port Lecturer, an Art Auctioneer or a Shore Excursion Manager.
There are so many roles available and by taking a chance, you could change your life forever!
