In Focus: Top Three Reasons to Work on Cruise Ships

The travel industry expands each year and companies continue to add new cruise ships, beach resorts and touring vehicles. And there’s no shortage of luxury yacht owners searching for crew. In the next three years alone, eighteen new cruise ships are scheduled to launch, adding over 42,000 new passenger berths and over 30,000 new cruise line jobs! This should translate into lots of openings for everything from cruise directors and entertainers to waitstaff and deckhands.

As incredible as that sounds, the cruise industry is still a tight employment market. Because of the glamorous reputation and many obvious rewards, competition for travel jobs can be competitive.
