People are also needed to provide the entertainment. Cruise ships need people for special performances, such as dancers, musicians, hosts and hostesses, singers, bands, disc jockeys, and more. Instructors are also very popular on cruises, and so are lecturers on a wide variety of topics. Entertainers need to provide a CD or DVD that demonstrates their talent and ability to keep people entertained. Technical staff will need experience and certification in their field.
