Carnival Careers and Employment

About us
A market leader in the cruise industry, we operate ships all over the world. We’re most widely recognised by our famous brand names P&O Cruises and Cunard Line.

Working together, it’s our mission to be the most successful – the most spectacular – cruise company in Britain. To do this, we focus on providing the finest cruise experience for each and
 – more... every customer. And of course, this isn’t possible without the skill and commitment of our people on board and ashore. That’s where you come in.

P&O Cruises

P&O Cruises is the largest cruise operator in the UK and, perhaps, the best-known in the world. Working on board the seven-ship fleet of Aurora, Oriana, Arcadia, Adonia, Oceana, Ventura and Azura, you’ll have the opportunity to experience luxury cruises to the Mediterranean, the Baltic, the Norwegian Fjords, the Caribbean, the Atlantic Islands, and round-the-world voyages.


Cunard

Cunard Line offers the only regular transatlantic crossing service on board the world famous Queen Mary 2. The 1,968-passenger Queen Victoria, launched in November 2007, undertakes a number of different voyages, while the latest ship, the Queen Elizabeth, joined the fleet in Autumn 2010.


It takes great passion and real commitment to maintain our position at the top. That’s why we’re always looking for people, both shipboard and shoreside, who share our obsession and drive to provide the most memorable experiences imaginable.

Seven day straight shift pattern, avoid
Written by Personal cruise expert (Former Employee) from Southampton, Hampshire on 18 November 2019
Sadly there is little to no career progression at this company, unless you have friends in high places.

The management is very incompetent and unfeeling, I would give examples but they are too personal to certain members of staff but needless to say bereavement, sick note's etc is not deemed justifiable for time off.
