Career Development

Your partnership with Princess can open doors to career opportunities. Job openings are posted on our Portholes intranet site and displayed near the Crew Office. Crew are eligible to apply for posted positions when onboard, after they have completed the first two months of their second contract. Internal candidates must meet the position requirements for the posted positions to be considered.

Promotions are managed in partnership with shipboard management, shoreside operations, and Human Resources. For advice on career and promotion options, make an appointment to speak with your supervisor or the Human Resources Manager on your ship.
