Benefits of Working on Cruise Ships

Luxury cruise ships carry thousands of passengers for a vacation in the middle of the sea. To serve the needs of guests on a cruise ship, it takes thousands of workers with their respective skills and disciplines. Indonesia as a country that contributes a large number of workers to cruise ships has felt a positive impact by reducing the number of unemployed.

Indonesian workers who are resilient and skilled and friendly in interacting with guests make every cruise ship company from small, medium to large scale do not want to be left behind to include Indonesians as workers.

But unfortunately, strategic positions such as officer, captain, etc. are rarely penetrated by Indonesians. usually, that strategic position will be filled by a person from the ship’s country of origin. For example, the Costa Crociere boat company headquartered in Italy. It can be ascertained that most of the Italians in control of the bridge.

Let’s talk about the positive impacts or benefits that can be obtained if we work on cruise ships. According to a survey we conducted ourselves on cruise ship workers from Indonesia, we finally summarized it as below.
