    Pros

    Cheap cruises for employees...when/if you can get one.

    Cons

    Executives do not care about employees. HR is only there to protect the company, not employees. Unrealistic expectations. Expected to give up your family life and work from home, too.

    Advice to Management

    You are the reason for the high turnover rates. The company bleeds employees.

    Pros

    The cruise line is amazing and for a writer, its easy to sell. Because RC is connected to so many exciting brands (Coca Cola, Barbie, Dreamworks, etc) you get to work on all of them. If you enjoy telling your friends about vacations and exotic destinations, you'll love writing for this company. Cool location at the port of Miami.

    Cons

    If you're looking to be creative, this is not the place. Like many corporate shops, it's run like a factory. If Creative had a fast food window, this would be it. It's a retail shop and maybe that's what works for this type of industry. Think super market circulars and ads that promote daily deli discounts and you'll be fine. Not much time to concept or dream up the next big idea. Write mediocre copy real fast and you'll make an impression. In the end, I felt that RC wasn't really interested in copy that set them apart from the other cruise lines. Perhaps they don't need to. They have a premium product, state-of-the-art hardware and a loyal customer base. And no one will be launching a cruise line to compete with them anytime soon. But GM could teach them a few lessons.

    Advice to Management

    As Norwegian and Carnival launch more innovative ships from the very shipyards that you build your amazing vessels, hire talented creatives to craft a smarter message to differentiate yourself from the pack. And pay them what you pay all of those corporate managers. You'll get more market share out of a talented copywriter than another powerpoint deck!
