Many cruise lines use concessionary companies to sell services and products on board their cruise ships. These cruise line business partners also independently recruit, train, and schedule their staff on board the ships they operate on. It is interesting to note that most of the concessionary companies operate on more than one cruise line.
To identify these third party vendors on a cruise line employment website, look for terms such as Business Partners (Carnival Cruise Lines), Other Services (Royal Caribbean), Other Departments (Princess Cruises), and Additional Shipboard Positions (Disney Cruise Line).
