As an industry leader, Royal Caribbean International is committed to hiring, training, and promoting the best navigators in the world. One of the cornerstones for the development of our Marine Operations team members is the Cadet Program. This competitive program offers officer candidates the opportunity to learn and experience the unique operation of large cruise vessel operations where they work with the latest technology in a fast-paced, multicultural environment.

Many of our senior officers today were once eager and hard working cadets who - through diligent professionalism, outstanding efforts, and consistently superior work performance - progressed through the various ranks within our company to become the very leaders who will inspire the incoming generation of apprentices.

In search of the highest caliber cadets, Royal Caribbean International has selected several maritime schools around the world to recruit from which have proven to provide strong and dedicated mariners. With the help of each school's director and our own senior officers, cadets are screened, and only a few who are in the top of their class are chosen for the cadet program. Because of our rigorous interview process, we regret that we are unable to accept outside resumes for our cadet program at this time.
