Default Please help!

So I am 18 years old and i want more than anything to work on a cruise ship. i'm aware it will be a lot of work but it will pay off to see the world. I have been trying like crazy to contact many cruise lines to ask the age requirement for employment. It seems no one can tell me. Can anyone at all tell me where to apply if I want a job at 18? thank you so much!

18 - Many cruise lines do not direct hire. Check the employment links on there websites or do an internet search for "cruise ship jobs". Also you can check the Crew Members section of Cruise Mates.

Good Luck

Don't try to contact the cruise lines directly. You message will likely go unanswered. Instead, search for crewing agencies in your home country. Alternatively, most major lines have career sites that will connect you to their preferred recruiting company. That company will be able to answer your questions. Start here: Welcome to Royal Caribbean Shipboard Careers - Royal Caribbean Shipboard Careers

Good Luck!
