Entertainer aboard the Celebrity Millennium

Entertainment (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

I worked at Celebrity Cruises as a contractor for less than a year

ProsGreat quality management. Excellent clientele and destinations.

ConsManagement is at times lack luster. Communication is passed down from supervisor to supervisor and is not conducive to a happy work environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key. Also, making employees feel empowered more would be nice. Information travels down the tier in a condescending manner.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Tavel, inconsistant management

Senior AV Technician (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

I worked at Celebrity Cruises as a contractor for less than a year

ProsTravel... see the world! Good food, friends and comrades for life! Great deals on travel and sightseeing in ports, if you can get off the ship.

ConsInconsistent and moody shipboard management. Recruiting / shoreside management has little to nothing to do with shipboard management, and once you've signed on, it's too late to realize that.

Advice to Senior ManagementA well rested employee is a better employee, than an employee that has worked 302 hours in a month.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Life changing, with a few draw backs that prevent any permanent desires with the company.

Entertainment (Current Employee)
Miami, FL

I have been working at Celebrity Cruises as a contractor for more than 5 years

ProsTravel the world, meet interesting people, work with people from over 70 different countries. You don't have to worry about any bills, food, or housing.

ConsLack of freedom due to strict rules that are always interpreted differently by all of your superiors. Language barrier with different departments and superiors. Expensive to contact friends and family at home. A lot of miserable crew members that you can be stick with for over 6 months.

Advice to Senior ManagementMandatory communications degree/classes done by 3rd party company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Experiences but tough relationship with Shoreside

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Celebrity Cruises

ProsTravel...I have been able to see and do things I never would have any other way. The amazing people you meet as well. I now have friends from all over the world.

ConsThe pressure to "make the numbers" has increased tenfold over the past 5 years to a point that you can no longer enjoy yourself because you are too busy wondering about the bottom line!

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the crew more and what they are telling you they need!

One of the best Hospotality Companies to work for.

Corporate Manager of Operations (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

Great vacation company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Celebrity Cruises

ProsIt is a great place to work for those that enjoy taking world class vacations. The location is great with ocean views from every floor

ConsThe culture is very non-structured and could be an issue for someone who is less structured. But if you like to "go with the flow" it is a great place to work.
