"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 EVERAND 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
