LIVING ON BOARD
Living at sea is totally different than living on land. Our ships are self-sufficient cities, operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It’s a unique lifestyle, always fast paced, can be rather challenging at times, and might take you several weeks to become acclimated.
It’s exciting and a bit overwhelming to leave your family and friends, but you’ll be sure to make lots of new friends onboard. In fact, most of our employees tell us the best part of working on our ships is the many new friends they make. There is never a lack of company around, and with most crew members being in their twenties and thirties, it isn’t hard to find something in common.
Here’s a preview of several departments “hard at work” participating towards the same end goal. A large amount of teamwork went into putting this fun “off the cuff” event together. This type of project doesn’t happen every day, but you do get a feel for the collaboration of many, across different divisions of the ship, getting involved and enjoying each other’s company.
We strive to maintain the highest standards in personal and professional appearance and all members of the Global Casino Operations Team are responsible for conveying a professional image at all times. Uniforms are an ideal place to start when striving to make a good first impression and convey professionalism to our guests. Uniforms must be in good, presentable condition and of the correct size at all times. There are some costs associated with this that our new hires should expect to pay onboard:
- Carnival Cruise Line Casino Staff Uniform
- Holland America Line and Princess Cruises Casino Staff Uniform
- P&O Cruises and Cunard Line Casino Staff Uniform
- Seabourn Cruise Line Casino Staff Uniform
All Global Casino Operations team members must wear uniform (as per the specifications of their position) when in guest areas. Exceptions are made for crew functions that occur in guest venues (e.g. emergency safety drills), when personal attire can be worn with the required crew ID and lanyard.
Space, of course, is at a premium on a ship, and all casino staff share a cabin with a fellow ship mate, though we never have more than two to a cabin. Although space is limited, we strive to create a relaxing home away from home and all our crew accommodation spaces come equipped with a television, desk, wardrobe, safe or lockable drawer, bunk bed (one upper and one lower berth) and bathroom.See More
