Royal Caribbean A Word From Michael Bayley Deliver the WOW!


A Word From Michael Bayley

Thank you for visiting Royal Caribbean International’s employment website. Whether you are considering starting a career in the maritime hospitality industry or looking for better opportunities, you have come to the right place.

Ever since Royal Caribbean Cruises, Ltd. was founded in 1968, we have always remained Anchored in Excellence. We became the most global, innovative, and exciting cruise line by launching the largest and most advanced ships at sea, and by investing in our greatest asset – our employees.

Guided by our trademark Gold Anchor Standards and empowered by their commitment to “Deliver the Wow” to all guests, our crew and staff take pride in representing Royal Caribbean International to the best of their abilities.

This is why we go to great lengths to make sure that our employees are happy and get the recognition that they deserve. I know because I started my cruise industry career more than three decades ago onboard a Royal Caribbean ship.

The work can be challenging and the hours long, as our ships operate 24/7. But the professional benefits include rapid career advancement for top performers, good pay, multicultural co-workers, extensive vacation time, and travel and adventure, which all add up to a fully rewarding experience.

I invite you to explore the amazing opportunities we have onboard our ships. If you believe as we do that great vacations start with great employees, you could very well be on your way to a long and successful career with us.

We wish you the best of luck, and hope to see you onboard one day.

Michael W. Bayley
President & CEO
