    Get the right leadership training for these managers and directors that need it. Look and listed to employees as they hold the key to what is wrong in the organization

    Pros

    The places, the people, the ships!! Great careers are available in the cruise industry and it is an extremely rewarding environment!

    Cons

    Can be hard to be away on ships for up to 8/9 months at a time. 24/7 at work is also challenging at times, however if you decide to work for a cruise company you already know what your signing up for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing, keep listening to staff and there ideas. They are the key to the continuous success you have had!

    You hire amazing people here at RCL and build incredible ships that create the WOW factor for guest. Please remain focused on your corporate headquarters - first, by improving the lives of employees here in Miami with office spaces that are updated to modern day and truly reflect the innovative company that we are.
