“From salad washer to sous chef” - 3-star chef Kevin Fehling worked his way up to the top of the Galley team on board the EUROPA in just two years. He has been running his own restaurant “The Globe” here since 2019 and is regularly onboard himself. This shows just one career path – and how about your future? Are you committed and passionate about your work? Take the chance to develop yourself further and set a course for your career! On board a cruise ship, you will gather a lot of impressions and experiences – in a much shorter time than is possible on land. We do everything to support you and help you to pick up speed!
If there are superior positions to be filled on board, we prefer to promote our own crew members. As an existing part of our team, you are already familiar with everyday life onboard, you know the processes and the ship. We would like to offer this perspective to all crew members. With a lot of commitment you have the best chances of reaching the next career level.
We want to be at your side at all times of your career. That is why we offer a variety of further education, training and development opportunities. We would like to help you to develop your career, but also so that you can develop personally. In addition to professional training on board, you have the chance to work with the best in the sector. Let yourself be inspired by star chefs like Tim Raue, Kevin Fehling or our Culinary Director Fritz Pichler. As part of our World. Class. Team. you will definitely think outside the box!
Would you like to change your perspective? With so-called cross training you have the opportunity to get a taste of other areas during your time on board. For example, if you as a cook want to lend a hand in the Entertainment team, our stage technician team will certainly let you look over their shoulder. Would you like to accompany one or the other shore excursion? Some ships and trips even allow you to get a Zodiac driver’s license in Antarctica or to accompany guests through the Amazon. Inquire in advance at the Crew Office and ask the responsible department head.
We offer language courses for our international crew members on some ships. Non-German speaking crew members receive German courses at different language levels. In this way they can further improve their qualifications and career opportunities.
The possibilities and conditions on board may vary depending on the shipping company or ship. Inquire in advance from the recruiters or on board in the Crew Office about the possibilities on your ship.
