Cruise ship Assistant Chief Housekeeper jobs

Responsibility for the cabins or staterooms on a cruise ship fall under the housekeeping department. This division is responsible for making passengers comfortable while they are in their rooms, and includes the care of the cabins, room and messenger service, and laundry pick up and delivery. Jobs in the housekeeping department of a cruise line are very similar to the jobs you will find in a five-star hotel or resort: Cabin Steward / Stewardess (Stateroom Attendant) who clean and do daily maintenance of the cabins and general housekeeping, Chief (Executive) Housekeeper, Assistant Executive Housekeeper, Head Butler, Butler, Pool Butler, Head Room Steward / Stewardess.

There is also a separate division that does the general cleaning and maintenance of the common areas around the ship and offers jobs for cleaner / utility cleaner positions.

The laundry on a ship must run almost continually. Bed linens, towels, tablecloths, and some crew uniforms must be laundered daily. This division offers cruise line jobs for laundry supervisor and laundry man / linen keeper.

Most cruise lines use local recruiters to staff these positions and candidates are recruited from all over the world. Housekeeping falls under the hotel department and most of the personnel is categorized as accommodation crew except the Executive Housekeeper (head of the department) and the Assistant Chief (Executive) Housekeeper which are officer positions.
