Desperatley seeking advice
Hi everyone,

I really want to get some work on cruise ships over this summer and I have been searching the internet high and low the whole day and feel even more confussed now then before I started.

Firstly what I do know is that I have to apply with an agency first and they help sort out your resume, advise you on the jobs you can apply for and put you in touch with a range of employers.

All of the agencies I have come across online though you have to pay for before you actually get a job. Surely that makes no sense and if you dont get a job you lose that money? Can anybody advise me on an agency to sign up to here in the UK for free or when I get the job I pay an agency fee? Am i making sense?

Any other advice anybody else can pass on would be great too. I don't know anybody who has ever done this before so could use all the help i can get really.

Thanks guys and girls,

Emily Walker

I don't know of any major cruise lines that do "summer employment". Contracts are usually six months or longer.

I have copied this thread to our Crewmembers area. Perhaps it will increase your chances of getting more information.

Take care and good luck,

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry I beleive I phrased it wrong in my original post. I am aware that contracts are 6 months or longer. I was trying to say that I wish to start by this summer. See I work at an indoor ski slope in the UK and its great but I dont wanna be spending all summer couped up inside not enjoying the beautiful weather. You know what I mean? Any adivce you can give about how to get my foot in the door would be brilliant! Thanks for reposting my message elsewhere too, I really appreciate it.
