Default Computer guy, working on cruise line?

Hi,

So I'm new... I've thought off an on for a few years of taking a job as the "IT guy" on a cruise ship. Heard a little about it but I'd like to know if anyone here has that job and what it's like and recommendations. Even where to start getting the job... I have a feeling that some of the job listings are hard to find.

Princess cruises mentions the job description on their site but there's no contact to apply or send a resume, for instance.

Besides that, knowing what it's like, the hours, the people, the computers... that would be great. Thanks!

IT Positions onboard

also, use the "search this forum" link above right to keep searching this forum - there's been a few discussions on your question over the years . . .

Also - most of the major cruise lines hire thru a 'hiring partner', not directly (these companies/people pre-screen candidates from all over the world and then forward the best to the company. They often hire for several lines)

For instance - here's RCCL's partner info

Shouldn't take you too long to figure out who Princess' partners are . . .

Hey thanks.

This forum is quite large and I didn't realize all this was here at first! I'll check out the things you recommended, thank you.

I suggest going through NCL where they have job fairs.

Carnival and others use 3rd parties.
