Royal Caribbean Cruises grants paid personal, vacation, and holiday pay.
When on vacation within stipulated time you get paid
the company pay your vacation when you finish your contract
Vacation, when if finally was granted would only last 2 months. Many times, I was held onboard a ship and not released for vacation until another Training & Development Manager was onboard. One time, I missed Christmas at home with my family because the T&D Manager replacing me had gone on medical leave. I was stuck onboard for 6 months. This was 2 months longer than my contract stated. The positive thing is that I was eligible for paid vacation time. it accrued while I worked onboard.
Tied to tenure, but was negotiable at hire. Many managers expect you to be on call (even for nonessential roles) during time off.
You start with about 2 weeks of vacation in the first year, bumped to 3 weeks after 5 years, and 4 weeks after 10 years. There's no rollover of vacation time. PTO (sick time) is 7 days per year.
Very generous up to 5 weeks after 25 years
1-4 years 2 week 5 yrs 3 weeks 10 yrs 4 weeks
All vacation time and other paid time off is fully paid.
If one has much work experience stating with only 2 weeks piad vacation is tough. One should try and negotiate 3 weeks if they have worked in previous company 20+ years and can show their value to the company .
you work around 8 months in royal caribbean ships... you will take two months of vacations and they pay everything
