Be very aware
of scams when looking for shipboard employment. Scam artists are
often trying to impersonate legitimate recruiting agencies. One of the
most important things to remember when looking for employment on a
cruise ship is that you should never pay a fee to find or secure a
cruise ship job. In fact, according to the International Transport
Workers Federation of Seafarers, requesting advance payments for work
on ships is prohibited under international maritime conventions.
Legitimate agencies and cruise lines do not request payment to secure a
job, nor do they offer a job without carefully examining your experience
through an interview. So please, please, please never pay, transfer or
wire money for any job opportunity.
