Life at Sea

The lifestyle of working on board cruise ships demands excellence, hard work, and motivation.

Each cruise ship is a multicultural environment with employees that represent more than 100 different nationalities. These diverse teams of professionals bring their own customs and habits to the workplace, resulting in an eclectic and unique working atmosphere unlike any other job.

As a result, not only do team members develop an expertise in the fine arts industry, but they also develop friendships with ties around the world.

In return for their ambition, business savvy, and attention to detail while implementing each onboard art program, Independent Contractors are encouraged to enjoy the unique amenities cruise ship life has to offer.
