    I worked at Regent Seven Seas Cruises full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Working in a luxury cruise lines is a plus. You work at the same time travel for free! I've been almost around the world working onboard for almost fifteen (15) years. And I think it's time for me now to work on land for good.

    Cons

    Working onboard have ups & downs of course! You travel a lot while doing your own work but sometimes you feel awful because of the weather and movement of the ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management are the Best! We have a crew welfare that takes care of all the crew and think of the benefits of the crew.

    I worked at Regent Seven Seas Cruises full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good itineraries, workload for my position and salary were good compared to other cruise lines.

    Cons

    Managers onboard and in the head office were terrible. I was required to work after being quarantined with an illness and then made to sterilize the area afterwords. This happened more than once. I was also required to do work for the Cruise Directors personal website. Company policy of giving a mid contract review were never followed in my case by my boss. Then on my end of contract review I was critiqued on things that had never been previously brought up as problematic. My boss was a fanatical micro manger, insisting on injecting himself into every aspect of my work although he had no background or expertise in the area. I personally witnessed employees being fired for minor infractions mere days before the end of their contracts thus requiring them to pay their own transportation costs home. Reported abuse is ignored by head office. Incompetence is acceptable as long as you are liked by the right people while hard work and dedication goes unnoticed and unrewarded if you don't suck up to your boss.

    Pros

    World Travel
    Pay much higher than most other cruise lines
    Good on the job training for all positions
    Lots of fun, meet great people from all over the world

    Cons

    No retirement or medical benefits
    long contract (6-8 months away from home)
    Some upper management is difficult, but that's normal
    You are on duty 7 days per week for 6-8 months at a time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since the takeover by Prestige Cruise Holdings, I believe the management has gotten better. There is less favorabilty. Would liek to see more consistancy from ship to ship. Also some upgrades in technology should be the norm for a 6 star cruise line.

    Pros

    Très bonne communication entre les départements, tous les employés sont très engagés et heureux de travailler ensemble. Gens très authentiques à bord. Conditions de travail et environnement, salaire, avantages sociaux, atmosphère sont là!

    working conditions and environment, salary, benefits, atmosphere onboard!
    Very good communication between all departments, all employees very commited and happy to work together. Very genuine people onboard.

    Cons

    fonctions très occupées, manque de soutien de la part des collègues en particulier à terre.
    parfois trop de pression et pas assez d'outils pour corriger les problèmes.
    L'entreprise elle-même devrait faire un effort pour maintenir les normes, le service ne constitue pas tout. Ils devraient se rappeler que les clients paient beaucoup d'argent pour la croisière "de leur vie".

    very busy duties, lack of assistance from colleagues especially from shoreside.
    sometimes too much pressure and not enough tools to fix the problems.
    The company itself would need to make an effort to keep the standards, service is not everything. They should remember that guests are paying a lot of money for their "one life time" cruise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    !

    to be more supportive when necessary, more guidelines and advice, more commitment.
