    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best way possible to explore the world, see different place, go somewhere you haven't been before.

    Cons

    No days-off, even that you sign a contract that you're aware about no days-off, later to stay on board for a length of a contract which was 6 months for me, was very difficult. So, think twice, if this is for you

    Advice to Management

    Really, not much to say... treat people more humanly, sometimes it helps not to feel frustrated

    I have been working at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    they took away our commission so now really it's just travel

    Cons

    poor living conditions, poor food, bad management is becoming more common

    Advice to Management

    experience real jobs first. so many start on board and work their way up so they've only experienced the work culture of being on board a ship

    I have been working at Royal Caribbean Cruises full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good (better than others I know who work at banks)
    Leadership is approachable and is invested in the success of their teams
    Hard working individuals usually get promotions

    Cons

    Sometimes the communication going to employees about changes in staffing is not handled well, which starts a lot of drama and misinformation to spread
    Training is available, but there is champion encouraging teams to take advantage
    Remote employees can feel like an island

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing things that work, but I think the biggest thing is that employees tend to trust management less the longer they work here. The culture is changing but tenured employees are sceptical and need to see that the change is real.

    Pros

    Amazing hardworking people who treat you as an equal rather than an intern. Some of the nicest people to work with.

    Cons

    Traffic in Miami can be troublesome but does not detract from the work you will be doing.
