Hello all,

I’m 22, from the US, and am interested in applying for a youth staff position on a cruise ship.
If anyone could give me information on the application process, I would really appreciate it.
My current commitment runs through Dec 16, so I could not start working before that point, how long in advance should I apply?
For this kind of position is it better to apply directly to the cruise line (whether they list it an a job opening or not?) or would an agency be recommended?
My first preference would be Holland America or Carnival simply because I am more familiar with those lines than other lines…but I would be happy to be a part of any cruise lines’ staff.
I recently graduated with a BS in Human Development and have 7 years experience working at a day camp with children ages 2-11.

Any information or warnings from personal experience is welcomed.

Thank you,
