Cruise ship careers include deck or ship operations jobs, entertainment jobs, service and hospitality positions, engineer and technician jobs, spa and activity jobs, and administrative positions. A cruise line also has land-based staff, such as marketers and booking agents. Your responsibilities as a member of the deck crew or an engineer involve the operation of the boat during a voyage. The captain and his mates steer and control the ship, and the chief engineer oversees the technical aspects of the vessel. Your responsibilities in other onboard positions may focus on planning or carrying out guest entertainment programs and guest services.
