Seabourn is the world’s most celebrated cruise line. Having consistently received the top awards, ratings and honours in travel and cruise guidebooks, we’re on a mission to create a totally new concept in cruise holidays: luxury ships offering levels of personal service equal to that found in the very best hotels, resorts and restaurants on shore. So for anyone considering a Seabourn cruise ship career, you’ll need to be dedicated. If, like us, you’re striving to be the absolute best at what you do, step aboard and join us for the cruise career journey of your life.
For all the ships in our fleet, we recruit at every level and have a strict policy of promoting from within, whenever and wherever possible. We’re therefore looking for serious and highly motivated professionals who are keen to make a hospitality career at sea with us, providing the standards of service and cuisine that ensure our discerning clients come back time and time again. A career in the cruise industry, particularly on board a Seabourn ship, is a job like no other.
Training received on our ultra-luxury small-ships
As you might expect, a Seabourn cruising job offers exceptional development opportunities. The progress of our people is a high priority at Seabourn Cruise Line. All new recruits undergo initial ship’s safety training after arrival. However, there is no substitute for experience and, with the diverse and high level service environments we offer, you will certainly benefit in time through ongoing on-the-job training. Further formal training is also provided on board all cruise ships for service related roles.
Working at sea, contract periods tend to be four months on, two months off. This may vary depending on which ship you are assigned to, as each has a separate itinerary. And that’s not the only benefit of a career on one of our cruise ships. We offer competitive salaries, food and accommodation is paid for, and flights to and from your ship are free. Plus of course, the whole time you’re working on board, you get to see and experience some of the most incredible parts of the world.
There has never been a better time to apply for a career on board a Seabourn ship. It is likely that your current job will give you sufficient experience to work on one of our ships. Almost every shore-based travel or hospitality related job working with members of the public should give you the ideal platform to apply for opportunities at sea. The most important attributes for a successful career in the cruise industry are a recognized professional diploma or equivalent and relevant hotel service experience (preferably 4* or 5* years) as well as fluent written and spoken English.
The next step
Working on one of our ships is exciting, fun and highly rewarding. While you are onboard, you will have endless opportunities to visit many overseas countries and places of interest. Few other hospitality jobs can offer such variety. But please understand, working on board isn’t for everyone. It’s hard work and disciplined. Which is why you must genuinely enjoy being with people and be dedicated to customer service. If this sounds like you, your career at sea awaits.
