Shipboard Systems Manager

Systems Manager (Former Employee) Miami, FL

ProsFun itineraries (if you get on the right ship), working with a diverse group of people from all over the world, Could enjoy yourself on the ship after work hours and actually mingle with guests and have fun so it didn't always feel like a work-only environment. Also, the IT salary was pretty competitive for the Cruising industry,

ConsLike any cruise line, for IT, the positions are limited and the opportunity to move up are even more limited. Once you learn the shipboard environment there isn't much opportunity to expand your knowledge-base beyond that while on contract, so it can feel a bit like you're stuck in a dead end job once you've been there a few years. Also, like any cruise line, if you want to move up the ladder in IT then you will need to live near their corporate headquarters in FL, assuming there is an open position available.

A major Con for IT is that with all the ships that NCL has, they still have a limited shoreside IT staff that supports ships and the IT budget for ships is severely lacking which affects shipboard IT operation when it comes to parts and repairs and ultimately effects the onboard working environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more consideration to your shipboard IT teams, be a bit more generous with the IT budget so the onboard teams can better do their jobs which, in turn, will help the different departments provide a better guest experience.
