With the coming of spring, American Cruise Lines is now gearing up for a new season.  Our corporate office is hard at work finalizing our passengers’ travel plans while our shipboard staff is busy preparing our fleet in anticipation for their arrival. This summer is shaping up to be one of our best yet, so now is the perfect time for you to join us! We have openings in management as well as in our 16 week temporary positions.

If you are hesitant about submitting an application, please peruse through some of our recent employee testimonials (below).  As you will see, a career with ACL is a rewarding experience that will not only provide you with great professional skills, but also will allow you to meet some remarkable people while traveling throughout the U.S.

This is my third season with American Cruise Lines and this company has been nothing but good to me. I started as a steward and enjoyed the lifestyle so much I came back as management. The passengers are wonderful. Many have cruised with us before and enjoy a familiar face when returning. The benefits are great. The stewards and deck hands work very hard. This is a great way to save up money for a large future goal and there is always plenty of room to advance. The traveling is a bonus. It definitely is what you make of it. I always push my crew to get off the boat and experience the world outside. I am very proud of how hard I work and at the end of the day it feels good to be rewarded.

American Cruise lines gave me the opportunity to travel and make new friends. Even though it is a lot of hard work and long hours you get to really learn what hard work means and it is like to be a team, you get to meet new people every week which is really cool. It is a great way to get out of a small town and really do something with your life. Passengers are great. The best part of this whole thing for me was making life-long friendships.

Working for ACL was an experience that stays with me every day. The truth is in the interview at least it was for me in both positions held. You certainly do work long hours and at times stressful, and truthfully, I can’t think of any experience that is filled with growth personally and professionally that doesn’t stress you out at times. If you don’t mind working hard while banking money, this job is certainly for you. One thing I didn’t mention is the travel, which is truly an experience you will never be able to get with any other job. I’ve traveled completely up and down the East Coast and the Mississippi over a dozen times, you get to take in the history of the bedrock of America, which is an opportunity in itself.
