Optimism for cruise sector

01 December 2016


We recently read an article about a certain level of "overconfidence" within the cruise industry in 2016, where Matthew Eichhorst, President, Expedia CruiseShipCenters described the industry as having been "bullish" in the New Year and that global events killed the momentum. Only small gains were made, he said, but the massive orderbook for cruise ships [74 on order between now and 2026] means growth will follow. Cruise capacity in the Caribbean is set to increase 5-6% in 2017 despite zero growth last year. Asia-Pacific cruise capacity is expected to increase up to 18% in 2017, accounting for 16% of global supply, while Europe accounts for 26% of global cruise ship deployment.

We're certainly noticing optimism within the sector, with brand new vacancies being taken on daily. A selection of our latest cruise jobs includes a Naval Architect role in London with cruise, newbuild and interior design experience for a privately-owned cruise company. Other highlights include us recruiting for Technical Guarantee Engineers, Fleet Sanitation Managers, Engine Superintendents and Hotel Engineer Superintendents.
