“What other job requires you to travel all over the planet while your bank account grows by thousands of dollars every month? There simply is no other job that offers these kind of life-changing benefits.”
My name is Derek Baron and I’ve worked on board 10 different cruise ships as a Tour Manager over the past 6 years. Liz Aceves, my closest friend and one of the most amazing people you’ll ever meet, has spent 3 years on board ships, working in some kick-ass positions that few people even know exist!
Every single crew member on every single cruise ship around the world uses the term ‘ship life’ to describe the unique and unbelievably rewarding lifestyle involved with working and living on board cruise ships.
“I always say that working on cruise ships as an Entertainment Host was the ultimate job. Who else would pay me to hang out with passengers all day, travel the world and meet amazing people? BEST EXPERIENCE EVER… AND I was able to pay off all my debt in a couple of contracts and then purchase my first home!”
Here is the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Applying for cruise ship jobs is not the same as applying for a job on land. The rules are different, the process is complicated and to put it simply, it’s near impossible to do on your own. Without knowing the specific steps involved, cruise lines just won’t notice you and your resume won’t even get a first glance.
Of course, there are “Cruise Agencies” floating around that make some pretty wild claims, such as making guarantees that they’ll get you a cruise ship job within a few weeks. Of course, all you need to do is pay them a ridiculous amount of money first. And unfortunately, the sad fact is that once you part with your money, these agencies often do very little to help you at all.
Before I was ever hired, I spent weeks on the internet trying to learn how to find work on a cruise ship before finally deciding to pay $250 to an online cruise agency. Sure, my gut told me not to but I wanted to work on a ship so much that I fell for the scam. This agency promised me that I would have a job on board a cruise ship within three months. As you might imagine, three months came and went and not a single cruise line had even contacted me. And of course, the ‘agency’ never replied to any of my frustrated emails.
All you need to land a job on board cruise ships is to know exactly how the actual hiring process works. Only then will you be in a position to get hired.
If you really want to enjoy the unbelievable and endless benefits of ‘ship life’, it doesn’t get any easier than having experienced crew members guide you step-by-step through that…
