Pullmantur is a leader in the Spanish cruise market. They have four mid-sized cruise ships that offer authentic Latin experiences to Spanish-speaking guests. They cruise to the Mediterranean, Baltic, Caribbean and North Sea ports.
Based in Madrid, Pullmantur began its operations in the 1990s as a tour company selling cruises. Pullmantur acquired their own ship in 2000, starting their own cruise line. For the next six years, Pullmantur acquired ships from other companies. In 2006, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. (RCCL) purchased Pullmantur.
Following the acquisition, RCCL transferred ships between the RCCL brands.
In 2016 Royal Caribbean Cruises formed a joint venture with Madrid-based private equity firm Springwater Capital by selling 51% stake in Pullmantur and CDF to Springwater. RCCL still retains full ownership of the ships and provides marine operations services.
When CDF ceased operations in early 2017, their two ships, Zenith and Horizon were transferred to the Pullmantur fleet. The other two ships in the Pullmantur fleet are Sovereign and Monarch.
English is the official language on-board the Pullmantur ships, so all their employees must be able to read, write and speak English. Apart from that, for the positions in which you will be in direct contact with the passengers (ie. Bar, Restaurant, Accommodation and Reception) and depending on the route of the ships, the crew will also be required to be fluent in Spanish, Portuguese or French.
Similar to the other Royal Caribbean Cruise Ltd brands, Pullmantur uses a network of recruitment agencies to achieve its recruiting goals around the world.
