Recruitment Agencies for Cruise Ship Jobs

Updated on April 1, 2011

Cruise ships are luxury passenger ships where fun, entertainment and pleasure can be experienced by people who want to have a break from their daily stressful life. This gives an individual an opportunity to enjoy the luxuries in life along the channels of beautiful islands. We have the Carribean islands as the most popular cruise destination. One can enjoy the crystal clear waters of the sea and the clear and beautiful skies.

This has opened job opportunities for many people around the globe. A cruise ship needs many employees from housekeepers, cooks, cruise ship managers, staff to entertainers and many more. Because cruise ship jobs also brings with it risks during work, the salary range for cruise ship workers are higher than the usually employees.

So, where can an applicant apply for these cruise ship jobs? Below is a list of the agencies where you can apply for different vacant positions. Always remember though that proper verification of the legitimacy of any agency that you want to apply with needs to be done also in order to avoid being a victim of online scams before pursuing your application or sending money. Many agencies will tell you to complete your requirements first if you are already accepted in the job.

They usually have vacant positions for beauty salon experts, housekeeping department, casino, food and beverage department, photo department, gift shop department, medical department, hotel operations department, entertainment department, gallery department, hotel operations, cruise staff and engine department. They have an online application HERE.

Cruise Lines Jobs  - this site is not an agency but it has a listing of many open job vacancies from different cruise line agencies. They also have different articles that will guide you in your job search. These articles include topics from “how to get a cruise ship job”, “cruise ship job scams”, “life on board”, and many more.

      Yes you can do that. The Cunard cruise lines has reugalr weekly service between New York City and the UK. The trip is 6 or 7 days each way. If you want to go visit the UK, or visit Europe via cruise ship then Cunard is your best option as there are cruises leaving every week from both the US and Southampton, England. From Southampton you can take trains to visit other European cities without having to fly at all.This Cunard web site will let you look at the schedule of voyages: In addition to Cunard, some other cruise lines also have what they call repositioning cruises that cross the Atlantic to and from England and/or Spain. Royal Caribbean Cruise line actually has a cruise that leaves from Galveston Texas and goes to Spain (from there you can get a train to England). Here's that cruise: = btn_findcruises.x=34 btn_findcruises.y=8 The cruise from Galveston to Spain is 14 days. The cruise date is May 2011 and right now you can get a great price on it. If you are not an experienced traveler you can get a travel agent to book the trip, and a return cruise, at no additional cost. Travel agents do not charge fees for their services as they are paid in commission by the cruise lines.If you had the time and money you could conceivably cruise from Galveston to Spain, take a train to London, and then take another cruise (6-7 days) back to the US to NY City and then take a train back to Texas.There are also some other options for cruising from the US to Europe next year. These cruises leave from ports in Florida and go to England, Spain and Italy: = cS=EXPVSCH cruiseTourOnly=false dest=T.ATL duration=ANY date=ANY port=FLL includeAdjascentPorts=Y ship=ANY selectedCurrencyCode=USD price=ANY state= x=85 y=7 As you look at the prices remember that all cruise cabins are sold based on double occupancy. So you would have to book for you and another person, or if you wanted to go alone you would have to pay a single supplement that is essentially a double fare.
