gym on cruise ship photo

How long was it before you got your ship assignment after accepting the position?

Just 2 hours!

How helpful was the cruise line in helping you get organized before you joined your ship?

Well, it was a bit of a rush. I was told at 9 pm that I was going, so I had to be ready for the airport at 5 am the next morning!

Living On Board

What are your colleagues like?

I was blessed to have an awesome spa team and a ship where everyone was like a huge big family.

What is your favorite port and why?

Canada. That is more my kind of scene. The Caribbean was great, but the Canadian destinations were my best. There is so much to see and do - it is wonderful.

Do you go on any excursions? If so, what was your favorite one?

I went parasailing in St. Thomas in the Caribbean. It was an amazing thrill.

What's the best advice anyone gave you about working in this industry, whether it relates to finding a job for the first time or making the most of the experience?

Have fun - work hard, but have fun.

What are the most coveted positions on the ship?

Casino staff and working in the shops. These positions also make the most money..

Royal Caribbean is great to work for.

What do they do to keep the crew happy?

Royal Caribbean has a nice, very family orientated atmosphere and love keeping up the crew spirit with parties, events and more.

Do you think working on cruise ships has or will help your career on land, and has it developed you as a person?

The hours on the ship have prepared me for land work and doing everything on my own onboard has been awesome for me. Running and managing a gym all by myself with no help is a fantastic experience, and will allow me to advance in my fitness career tremendously.

Jobs with Royal Caribbean

Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines is one of the world’s most popular and most prominent cruise lines. Founded in 1968, the cruise line now has more than 20 ships in their fleet all of them donned with a name that ends, “Of The Seas.”

Royal Caribbean is a Popular Cruise Line to More Popular Tropical Destinations

Royal Caribbean offers mainstream cruising into some of the world’s most popular oceans. While for years it concentrated mainly on the Caribbean, it has since expanded now offering cruises into Bermuda, Europe, Alaska, Hawaii and Mexico. What began as a small fleet operating out of Florida with simply a great idea to provide cruises for rich and wealthy Americans, has become a name synonymous with luxury and family cruises all over the world.

Search Current Royal Caribbean Job Openings

Royal Caribbean has similar jobs to those of other cruise lines. Jobs tend to be divided up by land based jobs and jobs that take place on the ship. Employees who work on land based jobs for the cruise line enjoy benefits like family and friend discounts on cruises and other perks of working in the industry but aren’t required to leave their families behind for months at a time while on contract. Because Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s Headquarters are in Miami, a large number of corporate, management, sales and telephone guest services are located in Florida.

Ship based jobs are what most people are after when wanting to join the Royal Caribbean cruise line job force. Sailing the warm waters of the Caribbean, taking in the views of the Mexican coastline, attending to happy guests onboard after a day in the sandy beaches all seems like a dream come true. Ship jobs on any cruise line offer the incredible advantage of working a lot of hours and spending very little money over the course of a ship job contract. The same is true for Royal Caribbean cruise ship employees. Because the cruise line almost always pays for accommodations, offers compensation or free food, the savings potential is incredible.

To find out what jobs are available with Royal Caribbean Cruise lines you can always check their online career opportunity job board. However, if you don’t see what you’re looking for there and still want to work for the cruise line, consider sending in an application or resume unsolicited. Cruise companies often don’t openly advertise for positions that are available so by expressing an open interest you’ve already put yourself ahead of the game. Cruise ship operators also hire out companies to hire for them so looking through a cruise ship job finder is also an excellent way to go. Companies such as this often have special relationships and access to jobs that aren’t otherwise advertised.

Working for Royal Caribbean you are with one of the most long standing and popular cruise lines in the world. All employees are paid fair wage with an increase in salary as the job title, amount of experience and responsibilities increase. Some cruise ship employees can make as much as $6,000 over the course of a four-month contract in savings. Working a cruise ship job with RCCL doesn’t only provide you with gorgeous sunsets and the opportunity to travel year round, but it also can help you earn some amazing savings as well.

Kansas Massage Therapy Requirement

With the failure of HB 2123, the ‘Massage Therapy Licensure Act’, massage therapist practice remains an unlicensed profession in Kansas. Legislation has been introduced more than once. However, Kansas is one of only a few states where massage therapy is not regulated on a state level.

This does not mean that there are no standards. Some Kansas municipalities have their own regulations in place. Individuals who are not subject to licensing regulations can still seek out education and training that meets nationally recognized standards; they may even seek voluntary national certification. Professional organizations can help members stay informed of professional trends and of bills that may in the future impact their practice.

Complying with Local Regulations

It is important to recognize that some local municipalities set their own regulations. In Kansas, it is not the size of the city that determines whether a massage therapist will need a license to practice. Municipalities like Lenexa license massage therapists while some larger cities do not.

Requirements vary, even among those municipalities that license. Overland Park has standards on a par with many U.S. states. Licensees must have 500 hours of education related to the practice of massage therapy ( http://www.opkansas.org/doing-business/permits-and-licenses/massage-therapy-license/ ). Education is to include anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, pathology, hygiene, and first aid, as well as practical training in massage therapy. Prospective massage therapists must also pass a national examination such as the Massage and Bodywork Licensing Examination (MBLEx).
