Once selected to work on a Cruise Ship, you reach a different level with tax-free excellent salary, lots of monetary incentives, various perks, free accommodation and meals, paid opportunity to travel the world, paid vacation, as well as working with international colleagues and serving high profile international clientele.
According to Cruise Market Watch, 323 ships sailed into 2022 but there are likely to be 25 new vessels added this year. So far, seven of these were delivered in 2021 and are debuting this year.
Cruise ship jobs entail skills quite different from those required for similar shore-based jobs. Hence, most cruise ships have their own on-board training programmes to ensure you are familiar with their in-house practices. However, some basic training is required before you take on cruise ship jobs.
Since Cruise Ship is a Super Luxury 7 Star Hotel floating on water, serving the global guests on it demands poise and service of international standards and of the highest level.
This is exactly what is taught in our intensive Cruiseline programs. The focus is on Communications Skills and Soft Skills with an attitude to serve international guests.
The following Cruiseline courses are conducted at DIIS:
