Where to Apply for a Cruise Ship Job?

Cruise Line Versus Recruitment Agent

Cruise ship job applicants have the option of applying direct through the cruise line or using a recruiting agency that hires for the cruise lines.  Cruise line recruitment agents are similar to temp agencies that help connect eager employees with cruise lines who are in need of their services. Agents are often a more direct path to the cruise lines because they have been prepped on the specific number and types of jobs and positions available for the cruise line they represent. Since many of the cruise ships jobs that are available are not publicly listed, discussing your employment needs with someone directly involved in recruiting for the cruise line may be more successful for your job search.


Many recruitment agents work directly for a cruise line and it is their job to find the talent and employees that the cruise line needs. After researching a cruise line you would like to work for specifically, it is a good idea to contact their recruitment agent. These agents screen, interview and in some cases provide training for open positions.  And don't be disheartened if you don't get the job the first time around.  Cruise lines are continually hiring.
