Job Description

Stewards

American Cruise Lines operates the newest and most modern fleet of seven specially designed ships, with over thirty unique itineraries in throughout North America. We operate our ships for much of the year, spending the winter months in Florida and the Carolinas, the summer months cruising along New England and the Pacific Northwest.

Our Stewards are considered our waiters/waitresses and housekeepers while on the vessel. Working onboard is fun, but it is also hard work. The pace is quick, the hours are long, and it can a challenge being away from home. But every day, when you wake up, and walk out on deck, you're reminded just how far away you are from the mundane life of a land lover. If you are looking for a unique job experience and are comfortable with close living quarters and long days, then this is the job for you.

Job Responsibilities:

Responsibilities include dining room set-up, service and sanitation of all meals. Daily stateroom service and housekeeping include cleaning, making the beds and bathrooms. Our vessels are small and intimate and we have a strong commitment to excellence and a passion for personal attention to all of our guests. Stewards will have a high level of guest interaction and are expected to demonstrate superior customer service skills and respond immediately and quickly to our guests needs. This is an excellent position for recent college graduates. Stewards are 12 week temporary employees.

Job Requirements:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age.
  • You must have a high school diploma.
  • Our vessels are U.S. registered. Therefore, all shipboard employees must be able to legally work in the United States.
  • All positions require pre-employment, random, and reasonable cause alcohol and drug testing, as per US Coast Guard regulations.
  • Physical Demands; All shipboard positions can be physically demanding. Repetitive motion, bending, climbing and often heavy lifting, are requirements of most positions. Every crewmember works 7 days a week for 12 hour shifts while on board.
  • Well groomed neat appearance

This is a great opportunity to build your resume, save money, travel, meet new people and have the experience of a lifetime. Thank you for your consideration.

      Pros

      Really dynamic work environment, with lots of chaos and always something different. Its a small company that is growing very quickly, so its an exciting time at work. It is still managed like a small company, with a lot expected from each person, so people either succeed or fail pretty quickly. The group that succeeds seems to like it here.

      Cons

      If youre not willing to deal with a chaotic environment, this is not the job for you. Sometimes disorganized and always lots of things changing.

      Advice to Management

      Keep growing. Build up the corporate team as you go.
