Fun and Educational company to work for.
Orchestra musician (Former Employee), Miami (head office)May 21, 2014
Pros: short hours, seeing the world, making great friends, gaining professional music experience, doing what i love and getting paid.
Cons: constant time changes, lack of job security once contracts finished.
Working for Royal Caribbean was a once in a life time experience where I was essentially getting paid to travel the world.

The job was to be part of the on board Orchestra, playing all kinds of shows to entertain the guests, whether this be playing in the weekly production of Saturday Night Fever, sight reading a guest entertainer show, or playing – more... Jazz for the captains cocktail party on formal night.

This role really helped me to gain a feeling of responsibility, as i was in charge of my own performance on stage and off stage and all issues relating to the Drums would be my responsibility to resolve.

As well as this as the orchestra drummer, I was in charge of all the other drummers on the ship. My role with this was to ensure that standards were kept, and the general maintenance of the drums was up to standard. – less

Lead by fear and pressure
Crew Administration Manager (Former Employee), Cruise ShipsFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: get to travel, free food, get to save
Cons: management is by people who have never lived on the ships
The company in itself is a good place to work if you have the energy and can put in the hours.
You get to see a lot of places and you're paid cash which is great.

However as much as you look for support there seems to be a huge disconnect between the ship staff and the head office staff which makes things very difficult.

If your boss is in Miami but – more... has never worked on a ship - they cannot possibly understand what one goes through.

If everyone in the office worked shipboard at some point - it would make things a lot smoother.

Also there is a lot of pressure to meet budget when things aren't still correct on the ships.

Unfortunate but true. – less

Sports Supervisor (Former Employee), All around the world on a cruise shipMay 20, 2013
Pros: loved the job
Cons: if i could do the same work on land and not on a ship it would be great
I have worked for the company for 4 years and want to move back home and lead a normal life. I enjoyed all aspects of the job, working with others, surfing on the flowrider, belaying on the rock wall, interacting with the customers, making the schedules, fixing the equipment.

Hotel Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), AboardApril 4, 2012
All jobs onboard a cruise ship are tough and the fact of not having days off make you really tired, but despite this, the experience and the career opportunities that Royal Caribbean offers make it a great company to work at.

Marine Admin Specialist/Marine Safety Admin (Current Employee), worldwideSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: travel the world for free.

working as an assistant waiter
Assistant Waiter (Former Employee), Miami, FLAugust 21, 2014
Pros: free food and rooming
Cons: long ours no day off
the day starts pretty early for us we get to see the guest the most as a dinning room staff thats why we always have to keep a happy face,we have long hours and have to work everyday breakfast or lunch and dinner the hardest part of the day is to get seats for everyone in the windjammer which is always crowded and the favorite place foe everyone,most – more... of the managers were nice just have to know how to get around them but the supervisors were bullies most of them not because they wanted to but what they have been told by management sometimes you end up on a shift where the co workers are not pleasant to work with so they goes your day then there is the time when all your friends work the same shift and its the best time of the day lots of fun with the guest.
doing this job makes you learn to be patient and helpful to people and to obey your superiors. – less

It was a great team to work with
Group Administrator (Former Employee), AddlestoneAugust 20, 2014
Pros: cruise benefits
Cons: not working from home
Royal Caribbean was a great company to work for, great people to team with and everybody had in mind the same interests and focus on the company.
Everybody was very united and had faith in the product.
The management were always clear on changes and new directions on business and we used to see senior management always around for listen to you.
The – more... hardest part - and not so hard, was to negotiate with high demanding clients. The company prides themselves on customer service, but clients abuse its policy and asks for impossible things sometimes.
Overall Royal Caribbean is a great company to work for and gave me huge benefits - like cruises at very low prices and I'm glad stayed with them for 10 years. – less

Pros: great people to work with.

I started knowing nothing of the cruise industry. I worked my way to a group cruisetour specialist. I worked with upscale travel agency. handle everything from accounting to special request. Hardest part of the job was to coordinate some of the request with peir and ship regulations. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking a cruise and working – more... with some very awesome people! – less
