Global Casino Operations Employee Testimonials 

We are an active bunch of people who engage – we get involved in life, work and play.  

We enjoy each other’s company, we’re open to meeting new people, and making more friends around the world.

We help one other, we pass on what we know and we learn from those around us – we know it makes us stronger.

Basically, when joining Global Casino Operations, we choose to remove ourselves from the security of our family and friends at home to become part of a new and exciting world onboard…it won’t take too long before you have a new network of friends onboard.  We’d even go as far as to say, some of your shipboard Casino colleagues will soon feel like family members to you.

Meet some of our team-members, in their own words:

Linnea Sofie Delen

Alina, Romania, Cage Manager

Alina has been working for GCO for the past 10 years. She started her career with us as a Cashier 2 and with dedication and focus she now holds the position of a Cage Manager.  Alina is an adventurous individual who always wanted to travel the world.  Working on a cruise ship is a privilege for her, and a dream come true.

“Carnival Corporation is a great company to work for; from day one they have allowed me to grow both professionally and personally.  What I like best about working on the ships is the interaction with our guests and fellow crew members.  It’s a great opportunity to learn about their culture, navigate the diversity of all, and understand what is important to each of them.  I’ve been made very welcome, and this feels like home.   I am very fortunate to work for Carnival, and I look forward to continuing to work together as part of the family.”

Juliet

JULIET, PHILIPPINES, CASHIER 3 

Juliet’s dream to travel around the world kicked off with a career onboard the ships as a cashier 2 in 2007.  Although she left GCO for a short time, she returned to our family in 2009.  In her time with us, Juliet has worked on a couple of different brands - Princess Cruises & Carnival Cruise Lines.  

She tells us she enjoys ship life and the experience it brings.  She loves exciting encounters and this is a place that suits her style and personality.

…working on the ships is all about combining adventure and a career together.  Every contract is rewarding and memorable.”

A little background…                                                                                                       
When did you join the GCO Team?  January 2013
Describe your current job. Cashier/Dealer – I work it the Cage cashing out guest accounts & exchanging players’ chip and slot credit winnings for cash.  I handle event and ticket sales, and when I am needed in the Pit, I deal in the Pit.
What I love most about GLOBAL CASINO OPERATIONS. Working for GCO has helped me start building my own house and to be able to provide almost everything that my son needs. “This is the best job ever!”
My best GCO memory. When I was growing up, one of my dreams was to travel to Australia, and when I joined the GCO team I got to visit Australia, and so many other ports of call that I had no idea even existed.


Tadej Magajna

TADEJ, SLOVENIA, HOST 3

Already in the business for 3 years, Tadej joined the GCO family as a Dealer 3 as soon as he was able to - at 21 years old.  He quickly realized that he enjoyed the Marketing aspect of Casinos, and made it his goal to be a Host, realized in less than 3 years with us.  He finds his work very interesting and now 9 years later, he travels regularly from ship to ship as a Premier Casino Host, a member of a select team that make our best players feel valued on VIP cruises.

Tadej likes to travel and this is the way to do it.  Even when he goes home for vacation, he makes time to travel all around the world to catch up with new friends he met on board.

If you like to enjoy life and your work, Global Casino Operations is the way to do it!  I have been here for almost a decade and I’m looking forward to many more.”
