American Cruise Lines is looking for enthusiastic servers to work remotely aboard its fleet of ships in the United States. We operate the newest cruise ships on rivers around the country and are always hiring happy, energetic people to join us. Most service member candidates are looking to begin a career in hospitality or are simply taking a semester off from college to save money!

 

This is a unique semester-long (16 weeks) position to gain experience in the hospitality industry aboard a cruise ship.  

 

The Perks

  • Save Money – Pay ranges from $700 to $900 per week.

  • Few Expenses – While on the cruise ship, your accommodations and meals are all provided for you. It’s a dormitory-style environment most people are comfortable with from college.

  • Travel - We visit 28 states on our different cruises. While working with us, you will visit a number of unique towns and cities you may never have thought you would see.

    Hospitality Experience – This is an excellent beginning to a career in the hospitality industry and a way to build your resume with experience in food service, housekeeping, and interpersonal skills.

  • Upward Mobility – Successful stewards may apply for full time roles in either shipboard management or corporate positions. We have room to grow for qualified and successful candidates.

 

Responsibilities

Servers: 

 

  • Set up and breakdown of dining room 
  • Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktail hour
  • Customer service
  • Cleanliness of dining room
  • Writing meal tickets
  • Exceptional customer service
  • Hotel duties as needed (assisting with housekeeping or general hotel duties)

The Expectation:

  • Hard work – everyone in our organization works hard to keep guests happy. For Hotel Service Members (Stewards), that means waiting tables and responding to all requests with courtesy.
  • Long hours – While on the ship, you live where you work. That means you have responsibilities every day, even early in the morning and late at night.

  • Commitment to Excellence – Everything we do is for the safety, comfort and enjoyment of our guests. Every request should be handled with precision and care.

Qualifications

  • You are at least 18 years old and have graduated from high school.

  • You are an American citizen or legally permitted to work in the United States.
