“The Fun Ships – The Fun Job”

“The Fun Ships”- that is exactly what the Carnival ships are. More affordable cruises, lots of neon lights, not that much elegance and formal atmosphere. Carnival is catering towards younger passengers and the main objective aboard the vessels is party, party and party again. That makes Carnival the richest cruise line in the world (the company owns also Holland America Cruise Line, Costa Cruises, Seabourn Cruise Line, Cunard Line and Windstar Cruises) which operate independently as separate brands and target a more upscale clientele). Carnival Cruise Line started in 1972 when Ted Arison bought one ship, the “Mardi Gras”, for $1, and assumed its debt. At the time, Bob Dickinson worked for Carnival’s parent company, American International Travel Service of Boston. In 1973, after Carnival had lost $8 million in six months, Dickinson was sent to Miami to “unload the turkey,” as he recalls, noting he had never even seen a cruise ship at that point. Instead, he studied the company’s problems and figured they could be fixed. Carnival cruise line employs at the moment about 3,500 people on shore – the majority at corporate headquarters in Miami – and offers 28,000 jobs on its cruise ships. What can employees expect from Carnival? Slightly lower salaries and somewhat lower standards when selecting candidates comparing to most of the other major cruise lines. Carnival crew members are like their clientele, they like to party and most of them believe that the more “loose” atmosphere and the presence of younger passengers makes up for the slightly lower salaries.
