I am researching the cruise line hiring process for a class and would love it if any former or current crew members could answer a few questions for me.
Specifically: General requirements to embark for the first time,
explaining the application process, are there (and what are) any specific requirements that a candidate must possess prior to applying for a position on board?
How/Where to obtain the necessary paperwork to work on board--
In case of specific requirements such as proper documentation; professional training courses ; physical tests; and explaining how to obtain them and where and if the company will provide (and pay for) any of them upon hiring or if candidates are requested to possess them before being considered for a job on board.
If any of you could help me with this information I would really appreciate it! If you'd like to email me, please do at email@example.com
