Here are a few tips for you:
First and foremost, a working knowledge of the English language is a
must to those who wish to work onboard cruise ships. Fluency of the language is definitely a plus factor.
Secondly, knowledge and Experience of the field (position you wish to apply for) is crucial. For example, for the hotel side positions like waiters, bartenders, cabin stewards, etc., you should have at least a year of work experience. In the above-mentioned position, if not a 5 star hotel. Remember, working for KFC or McDonald for 3 years is very different from working within the fine dining service onboard the cruise ships.
其次，你所申请职务的相关工作经验是最为重要的。举个例子，酒店里的餐厅服务员，调酒员，客房清洁员，等。你必须有至少1年的工作经验.上面所提到的职位,如果不是在5星级的酒店. 记住, 在肯德基或麦当劳工作3年是完全不同于用精美全套餐具的豪华娱乐.
Thirdly, you should be in top physical, mental and psychological shape. Please bear in mind that working hours onboard cruise ships are normally long (10-12 hours a day). Some of the crew tend to give up after 1-3 months due to physical exhaustion, mental drain or psychological breakdown.
Working onboard a luxury cruise liner will always have its pros and cons. One thing is for sure: you will get to travel and see the world for free and get paid for doing it. I have been to 9 countries since 2003 joined in the star cruise.
在豪华娱乐上工作既有它的优点也有缺点. 当然有一件事是肯定的: 你可以得到免费的旅游并且有薪水.我已经去过9个国家自从2003加入丽星娱乐.
Also, if you play your cards right, you may get to save money for food and accommodation is free onboard cruise ships. You would also get to meet a wide range of personalities of different nationalities. But the few things I have just mentioned are not without the "cons".
If you think that working onboard a cruise ship is paradise - well, forget it. Difficulties will come your way from time to time while you're onboard. The key factor here is to maintain a proper frame of mind at all times.
如果你认为在船上工作是天堂的话-那么,忘了吧. 当你在船上的时候困难会时时的向你逼来. 关键是一直保持正确的心态.
There are more than a hundred reasons and factors for you to consider. There are frequent rough seas, inconsiderate guests at times, very strict ship rules and regulations, sexual harassment incidents, long working hours, inconsiderate bosses, crew food which may either be of poor quality or totally foreign to your taste, living quarters (crew cabins) may be too small for the number of crew living inside, recreation or communication facilities for crew may not be available 24 hours,or 7 working days a week to name a few.
这里有上百条的原因供你参考. 经常遇到大风大浪, 有时遇到挑剔的客人, 有着非常严格的船上制度和条例,偶尔发生的性骚扰事件, 超长时间的工作,遇到一个没有同情心的老大,较差的员工伙食或完全的不合口味,员工居住区域的狭小,消遣或通信设备不能24小时提供,及一周7天的工作制.这仅仅是一小部分.
I can go on with the long list just to prove a point. In other words, working onboard a cruise liner will demand so much from you. It may be way beyond your respective expectation.
It is not my wish to discourage any of you. I merely wish to help you open your eyes to the various difficulties you shall be encountering onboard the cruise ship for shipboard life can be hell to the weak but manageable to the wise.
Now, should you be really determined to work onboard a cruise ship？ then go ahead by all means. At last, to all the future applicants I say - good luck!!!
