Cruise Ship Jobs

Have you tried contacting the cruise lines directly? Their websites usually have a link with information for people who want a job.

Yes i had send e-mails

Yes i had send e-mails multiple times but havent received and response from any of them. Should i call them personally or e-mail would do. Also i have seen multiple times that the local agents here prefer there own candidates which is a real demotivation. Please can you guide and assist me on this.

World trip

Want to be crew: Contact for more info.

Information about the 2010 journey to Asia:

The yacht is a 50 feet (14,9352 meter) Bavaria with 3 dobble kabins and 2 berth kabins. 3 toilets with bath, salon and pantry. The yacht is equipt with all security and navigation installments (Radar, GpS, Echo-sounder, Auto-pilot m.v.) and is in generel a very safe and automatic yacht.

On the journey through the Mediterranean, the På turen gennem Middelhavet, Caribbean and the Pacific ocean and to our destination it will be possible to diving. During the journey it will be possible to visit smaller and larger habours and to take a hike around when its possible. It is not possible to predict accurate where we will go ashore and anchor, but it will be a part of the journey to harbours as often as it is possible and in speciel situations. There will be many night sailings. During the journey it will be possible to look closer at the stars, see speciel moon views and to see sun-rise and sun-sets.

The journey will take approx. 7-8 months. The journey will start from Split, Croatia around the 20th. October 2010. before the journey starts the crew will go through a course on how it is to be on a yacht for a longer period. (if never tried before) and a course in sailing this yacht. The yacht will sail manily by sail but is able to pursue by engine on schedule. The yacht is made of strong glassfiber has an TMD 22, 78 HK Volvo Penta engine and is well equiped. Among security equipment there is a safety raft for 10-12 persons plus a rubber dinghy with outbound engine. (see below for our minimum equipment list).

The journey is on a share basis which means that we share the economically expenses in accordance with the principles of Danish Ocean Cruising Association which is total (basis contribution: maintenance, insurance, parts, etc. plus: food, fuel and beverages etc.) between USD. 1000-1500 per month depending on expenses, amount of crew and how long time you are crew onboard Veritas.

On the journey we will try to be concerned of all crew needs, individually and in generel. As so it will be possible to have privacy and if possible to leave the yacht for some time and return later in another harbour.

Information to assist crew to find a berth on a cruising yacht

Paying crew:
Anything more than crew paying for their equal share of onboard food/drinks, visas, etc., is a commercial venture with serious insurance, legal and liability implications. Expecting crew to pay towards any boat expenses (i.e. fuel, marina charges, boat levies, maintainance, etc.) makes that crewmember a PAYING crew/guest/passenger - with the relevant consequences.


Almost cross the world:

We are sailing from Split, Croatia Westward on the 20th. October 2010. Are you interested being crew member. For further info write to

Journey 1: Around 20th. Of October: Veritas leaves Split, Croatia and goes through Midterranean a month till end November2010.
