Come Aboard as We Transform Retail at Sea

The world of work is changing every day. It used to be about finding a forever career, a stable pension and the same place to go every day. Today it’s about finding a place that makes you WANT to go to work every day, a place that helps you evolve into the person you were meant to become. A place where you get to be the author (and director) of your own story.

Our People

Whether you are onboard our ships or in one of our global offices, you will work with people with a shared passion for making our guests have the experience of a lifetime. Shops onboard cruise ships are not the same as a store on the high street or in the shopping center. We are in the middle of someone’s family memories, of their romantic holiday, of their bachelor party. So retail, too, must be a memory. We provide fun, discovery and inspiration to thousands of people every day aboard our ships.

It might look like introducing someone to their new favorite cocktail at a VIP tasting event. Or teaching a room full of people about the art and science of jewelry creation and then selecting just the right piece for a single guest. Or introducing her to the new fragrance that is about to become her signature.

Is this the right place for you?

  • Do you love to connect people? To connect with people?
  • When you learn something new or find a new product, do you share it with everyone you know?
  • Are you up for adventure?
  • Do you get excited about trying something new?
  • Do you see challenges as opportunities to show just how good you really are?

If so, we would love to meet you. Apply Now or read below to learn a little bit about some of our people.

The Work

When the rubber hits the road (or the hull hits the ocean), what is it exactly that you will be doing? How is this different from a typical role in a retail store? How do our global corporate offices support our shipboard teams? How are we changing the face of travel retail?


Part expert, part influencer, part entrepreneur. You may represent one of the world’s most luxurious brands. Or you might be the expert on the origins of bourbon or scotch. You will bring unique retail experiences to thousands of guests around the world, becoming part of their memories during their most important family moments.
