Summer Cruise Ship Jobs

Bookmark and Share


It’s never too late to start the process of looking for a cruise job. Yet, contrary to what you may think, cruise ships have the same amount of passengers on their ships year round. As ships leave one itinerary they reposition to another itinerary, such as from the Mexican Riviera to Alaska. Crew members sign onto contracts for 4, 6, 8 or 10 months in length throughout the year.

The one department that does increase the number of crew during the summer is the Youth Department. Summer holidays means more families travelling together meaning a huge increase in kids needing to be supervised in onboard children and teen programs.

That holds true for all cruise lines that allow kids onboard (yes, there are some cruise lines that do not). Most cruise ships have year round youth staff (since kids travel throughout the year), but need to hire seasonal youth staff to handle the extra kids onboard. Many of these youth staff are teachers that are on summer break, university students on holidays or cruise applicants looking for a way to get their foot in the door.

Consider that once you sign on for a short summer contract, you just need to prove you can do a great job.  Then, you are now at the right place at the right time for a longer contract. On we have the latest cruise ship vacancies in youth department jobs as well as many other cruise jobs that need to be filled.
