Work Experience Cruise Lines

Ocean cruise lines go everywhere in the the world throughout the whole year. They are similar to a five star hotel. The size of these ships vary from small yachts to giant vessels which carry often about three thousand passangers. The contract of the crew usually lasts for six months.

River cruise ships are going on European Rivers such as the Danube or Rhone and between Amsterdam and Budapest. There are about 80-200 passangers on these ships and the crew's number is about 35-85. The contracts last for a season, usually from March to November every year. The crewmember shares his/her cabin with one or two other crew members. Meals are provided. Everyone who is planning to work on a river ship must have a good command of the English or German knowledge and have previous working experience.

Working time

You are expected to work seven days a week, about 10-12 hours every day. There are no free days but maybe some free hours you can relax.
