Products and Services

4.1 Payment. For all Products and Services orders, payment is required in full before Products and/or Services are provided. Your credit card or Paypal account or other method of payment you have chosen will be debited as per the price of the Product or Service purchased. An email will be sent to you detailing the transaction and including a link to a digital file or download. All our prices are fully inclusive of taxes that we may be legally obliged to apply to our customers depending on their individual physical location. CruiseJobDirectory is not responsible for foreign exchange movements or fluctuations.

4.2 Acceptance of Order. No purchase subsists until we accept your order. We may choose not to accept your order for any reason. We retain the right to revoke your right to continued use of our services at our discretion. We will provide a refund if we do not accept your order.

4.3 Process, Timeline, and Correspondence. Once we have received payment for your Resume Consultation or Customized Resume, and we have accepted your order, we will email you a Resume Consultation Questionnaire and instructions on how to proceed with your Resume Service. It may take up to 48 hours between the time you make your purchase and the time we send the email with the questionnaire. You will then be required to email your existing resume along with the completed Resume Consultation Questionnaire (your “Materials”) back to us. Once we receive your email, we will review your “Materials” and prepare your Cruise Job Consultation Summary. We may request additional information from you before we can proceed. Once we have all your information, we will complete your Cruise Job Consultation Summary within three days.

After you have received your Cruise Job Consultation Summary, and if you have purchased the Customized Resume service, then you are responsible for sending an email back to me detailing which specific cruise ship job you are applying for so that I may customize your resume accordingly.

Once I have received your email stating which cruise ship job you are applying for then I will proceed with your Customized Resume. Depending on my workload, it generally takes between 4 – 7 days to complete your Customized Resume and email it to you.

4.4 Delivery Display Format.  For the Customized Resume we do not undertake to include non-text elements (ie. graphics, logos, photographs), nor do we undertake to make use of color.

4.6 Guarantee. Your success in obtaining interviews and subsequently a job on a cruise ship depends on your qualifications, experience, education, English proficiency/fluency, passing a medical exam, and other factors. Although, we do not guarantee that you will be offered interviews or offered employment, we do promise to maximize your potential of getting hired when you use our Services.

4.7 Refund Policy. Once you have paid for your Products and/or Services, received our emails, and you have forwarded your “Materials” to us, there will be no refunds.
