I have an interview fora deck cadetship with Clyde, do i just say in the interview that thats one of my preffered company? will this clyde interview be my only one? sorry for all the questions guys! but thanks for the help

    When applying to cruise companies, with companies such as Clyde, it is worth remembering that there will be a hell of a lot of others applying too.

    If you are successful with Disney then they do conduct their own interviews too.

      To continue on from faust... If it is cruise lines you are interested in working for, it is worth also applying to the main cruise line recruiters;

      Viking Recruitment
      Carnival UK
      Princess

      You are able to apply to several cadetship schemes at the same time - in fact its pretty much expected that you will. Just make sure the one you eventually accept is the one you want!
      ?Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn?t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.?

        More bloody cruise ships. If you're going through Clyde, the chances of you ending up on a cruise ship are about as good as my having some sexy fun time with the Victoria secret girls.....

        Better off applying to Wet Cargo ship companies, that way you're not trapped to one specific type of ship and can float between types fairly easily...
        I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

          Overall you are best joining cruise ships in later years, you can work your way up very quickly through the other industries yet with cruise ships because they are so popular its a longer process. The best way is to get your masters ticket and then hop across last minute. I applied for Royal and didnt get them..

            Hey

            I'm with Clyde and was put with Royal Caribbean Cruises however I was hired internally and put forward to Clyde by RCL themselves. I personally wouldn't put down a cruise company as your first choice..(I think you get to pick 3) as I'm 99% positive it will be a waste of a choice.

            Getting a cruise ship position is very rare with companies such as Clyde.

            I'd follow AlistairUK's advice and apply to actual cruise line recruiters. During my 1st phase there was quite a lot of Princess and Carnival cadets.

            There were 2 royal and no Disney. Both royal were internally recruited.

            Hope that helps,
            Harry

              I also agree to earlier comments, it can be more beneficial to work on wet cargo vessels and then move into cruise liners later, simply because its easier. Very difficult to move from cruise liners to cargo without prior experience.

                Speaking to someone from Clyde yesterday, he bought up Disney, and said that, of the however many hundreds of cadets Clyde takes on, Disney only takes 2-4 of these a year. I suppose it's not an impossibility that you would be taken on, but he said people definitely shouldn't apply to Clyde looking to join Disney.

                    Who wouldn't want to work on a ship with a horn like that?!
