Reference codes:

Take note!

  • CVS received that do not have reference codes and photos will be rejected automatically.
  • You may only apply for a maximum of two positions and clearly indicate this in the front page questionnaire.
  • We will acknowledge receipt of your CV within 48 hours (barring over weekends). If no response received within this time,  please re-send your CV. (You do not have to phone to check if we have received it)
  • Do NOT resign from your job. We will give you written consent when the time is right.
  • You may only apply for the specific positions we advertise. If the vacancy you are looking for is not listed, it means we do not recruit for it, and you will need to approach other hiring companies for assistance. We unfortunately cannot assist vague applicants who “are willing to do anything” to work on board a cruise ship.
  • Remember, there is no guarantee for any 2 persons applying together, that they will be placed on the same vessel or even work for the same company.
  • Ex crew members who breached their previous contracts (i.e. left early or were dismissed) may not re-apply, regardless if it was for a different company.
  • Management always reserves the right to be as selective as necessary, and their hiring decision is final.
