I would just like more information related to working with your cruise line company as well as traveling to and from, what the duration’s are when working, as well as what my role will be, and some information on if I choose Canada what the visa/ passport requirements are?

    Kind Regards

    • Heather Hathorn

      Hi there Judith, our youth security roles are usually open with P&O Australia primarily. Contracts are usually 4-6 months in duration. P&O has a few ships which are primarily based out of Australia and New Zealand. Although we are located in Canada our P&O candidates join in Australia or New Zealand most often (the company provides all flight costs to get to your ship). If you are American or Canadian you will often not require any additional visas (other than an entry visa to come into Australia/NZ to join your ship and an MCV visa to work onboard an Australian based vessel). You would not need to obtain any visas until you had been approved for employment. Most of the above noted visas are free or at a very low cost via the Australian Consulate. Please feel free to message me with further questions if you have any at pmmarine@telus.net.
