For those truly passionate cruisers, what better way to spend your working day than to immerse yourself in luxury vessels and inspiring shore excursions to bucket list destinations!

28.5 million passengers cruised globally 2018, a 7% increase on the previous year. So now is the perfect time to build your career within this growth sector with multiple cruise jobs to choose from.


Reservations is fun and rewarding cruise career, that comes with great travel benefits and multiple opportunities to get onboard and experience the cruises you sell! Choose to be a Cruise Travel Consultant for a specific cruise line, handling reservations from travel agents and the direct public. Alternatively, work with a wholesaler in the reservations department as a Cruise Specialist and gain exposure to multiple vessels and jaw dropping destinations from a wide variety of cruise brands across the globe.


If research and development are more your thing, then a cruise job as a Product Manager will see you travelling to the next emerging destination and packaging cruise itineraries and unique shore excursions to deliver your customers the experience of a lifetime! An excellent role for those who love to travel and a great way to see the world and get paid for it!


For the charismatic extrovert, or those looking to take a step up from reservations, a Sales Executive or Business Development Manager position is a fantastic and lucrative cruise career. What could be better than inspiring others to sell a product you know and love? A sales role will get you out of the office visiting retail travel agencies presenting all the destinations and features your cruise line has to offer. You’ll hold product launches and social events when new brochures are released and better still, you’ll host travel agents onboard all kinds of luxury cruise vessels!


For those with a keen eye for detail and a creative flair, then becoming a Marketing Coordinator is a fantastic way to learn about cruise ships and exotic cruising destinations.
