      Hi John,
      Indian nationals are employed as Officers on some cruise lines, including the various brands of the major umbrella companies such as Carnival Corp/RCCL, although it's probably against some tough competition. High grades, good quality experience, high levels of competance and a fluent command of the English language would most likely be the prerequesites.
