Interesting to work Crew festivities

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Everyone can find their place for job position. There is a space for improvement in the Management area concerning nepotism with avoiding representatives and associates (promotions) to be mostly from one nation.

Competitive but rewarding

CCL is a competetive worplace as there are always people on the door step to change you with. It makes your life stressfull, however if you manage to show what you are capable off, you get a certain amount of security and stability with the company

A very buy diverse working environment, providing challenges each day, but a very enjoyable place to develop and learn. If you like to travel working onboard cruise ships maybe the way forward, be careful which department though as some get more time off than others.

Great for Singles

Great experience if you're young, ready to work and want to meet new people. I would say that the company is getting used to adding tasks for technicians without proper compensation though.

Hard Work but Worthwhile

The hardest working environment I have been in, but the most enjoyable. I would not change one part of any experience I can take from the company. Very nice company.

Fun workplace

Great place to work, travelling the world whilst doing what you enjoy. Only worked when ship was out at sea. The cruise ship casino was lovely and classy, the guests were there to have a good time and was nice to be a part of their experience.
