    The tips were insane! The more experience and games you deal with confidence, the better class of ship you join. Hence more tips! Flights to and from the ship are paid for by the company. Lots of amenities for the crew!!!!!

    You will work 11 hours a day, every day for 7 months straight.

    I worked at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a huge opportunity for growth in this company. I nearly doubled my salary in 9 months, and continued to moved up every 3 -6 months. The company is concerned with your total wellness and offers so many benefits to ensure you lead a balanced life.

    Cons

    There is a lot of discrimination amongst coworkers. There are clicks and some of the people in management turn their head for favorites. It is impossible to get fired from Royal, unless it's for attendance... and there are some people who really should be let go for ethical reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on those who are taking away from the sense of family this company provides.
