lines hire employees on a contractual basis. A typical cruise ship
employment contract has a duration of approximately six months. After
having successfully completed your contract, you will receive an
evaluation from your supervisor. The contract can then be extended or
renewed based on your job performance. Generally the company will hire
you for a certain number of months, but in the contract fine print they
usually have the right to shorten or extend the employment contract by a
few days or weeks.
general, the cruise line will arrange and pay for the transportation to
bring you to the ship. If you have to fly, they will fax or email you
all the details for your flight. Today, with electronic ticketing, all
you need is to show identification at the airport check-in counter. When
you arrive at the port city, the ship's agent will meet you at the
airport and drive you to the ship. Sometimes smaller cruise lines
handle transportation costs differently. They will advance you the cost
of your flight to meet the ship, and then deduct it later from your
pay. Just make sure you are clear on how the cruise line will handle
your transportation both to and from the ship.
