Is Norwegian Cruise Line Hiring?
The short answer is yes! Although the cruise industry is currently on pause due to the pandemic, this doesn’t mean that there isn’t a need for crew. Cruise ships worldwide are continuously changing their crew onboard. Each cruise ship requires a minimum complement of crew to carry out essential duties. And, as in normal operational periods, crew changes occur on a regular basis as contracts come to an end.
Although Norwegian Cruise Line has extended the suspension of their cruise operations through April 2021, they continue to operate 17 cruise ships with plans to welcome six more ships between 2022 and 2027.
