Become a Cruise Ship Worker
Get Paid to Travel the World

Imagine having a fun and exciting job traveling to exotic destinations such as the Caribbean, Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, the Bahamas, Europe, the Mediterranean, or Tahiti.

Cruise ship jobs offer free travel (including airfare to the ship), free room and board, plus starting salaries averaging $1,500 - $2,500 per month. You can even have members of your family travel with you at a reduced rate after you've worked on the cruise ship for a while. 

Accommodations are comfortable, and when you become an officer or manager you will have your own cabin on a higher deck, with a porthole or window. But of course you won't be spending much time in your cabin! 

How you spend your off-duty time is up to you. Imagine being able to enjoy hiking around ancient monuments in Rome, eating at a French café in Martinique, walking along a glacier in Alaska, or sunbathing on a sandy beach. 

With all the exciting things to do on a cruise, it's not surprising that the Cruise Lines International Association found more than 44 million Americans have expressed interest in cruising.

What this means for you is that many cruise ship jobs are available. As long as you have the desire, you can become a cruise ship worker and get a job on a cruise ship. For nearly all entry-level positions, no prior cruise ship experience is necessary.

If a cruise ship job sounds like the career of your dreams, the FabJob Guide to Become a Cruise Ship Worker is for you! In this e-book you will discover how you can get started and succeed in this exciting career. 

Author Julie S. Botteri is a Master Cruise Counselor. Her cruise experience includes managing the water sports and scuba programs for cruise lines including Renaissance Cruises luxury yachts and Princess Cruises.

Here is a brief excerpt from the guide about this particular job (you will find more detailed information in the guide):

"Every ship has a cruise staff, loaded with talented, high-energy individuals essential to the guests' entertainment and participation in cruise activities. Your day may include lip sync contests, sock hops, pool Olympics, limbo and dance contests. 

These are some of the most rewarding, fun-filled jobs to have on a cruise ship, and the entry-level opportunities are vast."
For this position, and dozens of other cruise ship jobs, the guide gives job titles, job descriptions, salary ranges, and an explanation of what skills are needed. Imagine how many of the following cruise ship jobs you might enjoy doing:

"When I was hired for my first ship contract on the Crown Princess, my first working cruise was a Valentine's Day voyage in the Eastern Caribbean. Our ship was featured on a live feed for the Oprah Winfrey show, as they televised the renewal of wedding vows for passengers onboard while guest-host Captain Steubing looked on. Not a bad start to a career at sea!"

"I purchased your guide a month ago. I am excited to let you know that I've been offered a position as the Cruise Program Coordinator/Administrator for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines starting next week! My first six months will be spent in Mexico, Hawaii and the Panama Canal. I am sure it would have taken me an extensive amount of time to secure a position without the information you provided about how to prepare my resume and the addresses of where to send them. Your guide is a valuable resource which I will carry with me on my travels. Aloha!"
