Cruise Ship Waiter or Waitress
Live and work aboard our cruise ships as you get paid to travel. Every day is an adventure with new challenges that will further your hospitality and food service experience.
As a Waiter or Waitress onboard a ship, you can travel the beautiful scenic waterways of the US while building your resume and learning skills that will last a lifetime. This exciting position allows you to play a dynamic role within our shipboard team. It’s all about having fun, making new friends, and working hard. You will be serving guests our chef-inspired meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in our onboard dining room, while also assisting with food service during cocktail hours and onboard events.
The crew members on board are the key to success for the company and are often one of the most significant reasons that our guests continue cruising with us.
