New Cruise Ships & Job Opportunities for 2009!

Despite all the talk of the current economic climate, the boom in the cruise industry just doesn't seem to be slowing down.

It's even more hard to believe when you consider that each one of these ships costs hundreds of millions of dollars to build!

What's more, these aren't the only ships being planned.

This year we have yet another "Biggest Cruise Ship in the World" entry from Royal Caribbean with their jaw-dropping 6,400-passenger, Oasis of the Seas.

Of course, this is fantastic news for those looking for cruise ship jobs because these new ships alone will create a demand for an EXTRA 10,000 new crew members in 2009 to fill every position imaginable - from cleaners, entertainers, shop staff, bar staff, beauty staff, security, casino staff, photographers and many more.
