Carnival Cruise Lines


Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines (one of the companies that belong to Carnival Corporation) was started in 1972 and since then has earned its leadership position in the vacation business and a reputation of “The Most Popular Cruise Line in the World.” Carnival Cruise Lines is presently the largest and most successful cruise line in the world. Success, elegance, constantly improving service, and goal-orientated leadership create Carnival “Fun Ships”. The Company is quickly and successfully developing almost every year presenting to the world a new cruise ship, with the promise of even more fun and better cruise vacation.


Taking into account the company’s constant growth, demand for new personnel has been growing over years. The representatives of Carnival come for job interview to Lithuania, Latvia, Belarus or Russia approximately twice a year. They are hiring English-speaking young people to different positions in Food and Beverage, Housekeeping, Photo, Carnival Camp, Entertainment, Casino, and Technical Departments. The main criteria of evaluation are: English, skills/related job experience, appearance, personality and hospitality level.


At the job interview usually both tipping and non-tipping positions are being invited. It is also possible to receive a “trainee” position, meaning that before you start actual work you will undergo on-the-ship training. The training is called Carnival College and lasts from two to four weeks. For example, if you receive a Bar Service Trainee position, you will arrive to the ship where the Bar Service College is taking place. After successfully completing the College program and passing the final exam you will be assigned to one of the company’s ships to work as a Bar Server.
