CRUISE STAFF

ASSISTANT CRUISE DIRECTOR

Once the ropes let loose and the ship sets sail there's a group of talented folks engaging with our guests to keep the energy up to the wee hours of the morning. That group is our cruise staff made up of Assistant Cruise Directors (ACDs) and our entry level position, Junior Assistant Cruise Directors (JACDs). If the Cruise Director is the leader then this group is the pack. They might split to host a variety of activities during the day or come together to throw a killer party at night. Either way, where they go, so goes the action.

While most of our activities or taught through the many contracts you may experience with Princess, there are a few that Princess may provide special training to help you gain that extra bit of knowledge and experience. Zumba is a cornerstone of our experience and Princess proudly provides training for you, free of charge, either onboard or in your hometown. In addition, we foot the bill for your membership for the months that you're onboard. Ever gaze at wonderment at beauty of the night sky? Princess proudly offers Stargazing at Sea, a popular event that is run by some of our trained and qualified cruise staff. And how does one receive this training? You guessed it, provided by classroom and practical training onboard our ships from a real life astronomer. And that's just skimming the surface!

ACDs are officers onboard the vessel, reporting to the Cruise Director. As such, they receive their own cabin accommodations, competitive wage within our industry and great team member health benefits.

Oh…and then there's part about seeing the world and having a ton of fun while you're doing it!

CHINESE / JAPANESE ENTERTAINMENT HOST

Princess Cruises sails to MANY exotic locations. But when it comes to China & Japan, the experience needs some extra special attention. For that reason, we've set aside positions on a select few ships for team members that are essentially "triple threats" – entertainment, language & culture. Our Chinese and Japanese Entertainment Hosts (CEH/JEH) have established experience in hosting entertainment events, venues & activities. They're fluent in either Japanese or Mandarin Chinese. And, they're well versed in the culture and traditions that go along with these regions.

We are not currently accepting applications for this position.

CRUISE DIRECTOR

Much like the Captain at the wheel guiding our vessels from port to port, the Cruise Director drives the pulse of our entertainment onboard. More than simply informing the ship about events, the Cruise Director experiences the entertainment alongside our guests. They're hosting shows, activities & events inside and outside, morning and night. Each morning they host, and often creatively control, The Wake Show, our shipwide morning TV show. At night you'll see them doing the "Issac" at our Love Boat Disco Deck Party. They guide the chair-spinning excitement of The Voice of the Ocean.

We are not currently accepting applications for this position.

ENTERTAINMENT DIRECTOR

The Entertainment Director is ultimately responsible for the entire entertainment offering onboard. As the entertainment programmer they work with managers to schedule shows, activities, parties & performances in a manner that benefits both guest enjoyment and revenue. Under the guidance of shore side management they work to ensure brand pillars are delivered with the utmost attention to detail. As an executive officer they work with the Captain and others to ensure entertainment is delivered safely according to the many governing bodies that protect vacations at sea. All of this through a strategic and analytical lens using data from various sources to guide the product.

JACDs are often the newest members of our cruise staff. With two to a cabin, focused training and development over a few contracts, these team members are groomed to be the stars of our future.
