The cruise line market has been growing more than no other in the past ten years. During the last first years, all leading cruise lines have doubled their fleets and amount of employees. Many new cruise ship lines have come out trying to get their share from the cruise market explosion. But with all the cruise ships already being built the number of cruise line work force internationally is expected to triple by 2010.

A cruise ship, for those who don't know is a self contained floating community that makes recreation available for up to 3,000 passengers. There are hundreds of jobs and skills required to keep a cruise ship operational. Working for a luxury cruise line offers many rewards, but the most common reasons for working with a cruise line, are:

You can learn while saving a significant amount of money for a short duration as all of your expenses are taken care of by the cruise line, including food, accommodation, medical care, airline ticket to the port of embarkment and back home, regardless of which part of the world you reside in; citizens of certain countries do not need to pay taxes on the income they earn at sea; you are able to travel a lot without spending any of your own money; discounted cruise rates for relatives and family members.

Cruise lines hire staff all year round and are looking for highly motivated, upbeat, outgoing, friendly and professional employees with a positive attitude and strong commitment to customer service excellence. Contract duration tends to vary between 3 and 9 months and in most cases you have the choice to extend your contract.

It is not difficult to qualify for a cruise line job and it is likely that any background you have in hospitality, or any job where customer service, and working with customers or clients was involved will be enough proficiency for cruise line employment.
