What is Norwegian’s recruitment process?
  1. Once you submit an employment application for an open job, a member of Norwegian’s Employment team will review your application. This review entails comparing your education, work experience and any other job related criteria necessary for success.
  2. If the review of your application is successful, your application will be forwarded to the hiring department for a second review. This second review, entails comparing your work experience and knowledge as it relates to the technical criteria required for the open job.
  3. If Human Resources and the hiring department determine that your qualifications  are a match, a Norwegian Employment team representative will contact you to either proceed through an initial telephone interview or be scheduled for an in-person interview. Usually during the in-person interview, applicants will meet with both a Human Resources representative and a represenative(s) from the hiring department.
  4. Please note that due to the high volume of applications we receive on a daily basis, we unfortunately cannot personally contact each and every applicant. We will only contact those applicants that have been determined to meet the necessary criteria of any open job. We do request that you do not call or email Norwegian Cruise Line to obtain information on the status of your application. Once a job is filled, Norwegian will send out correspondence to let you know.
Will I be notified of the my application and job status?

Yes, however, due to the high volume of applications received, unfortunately we cannot personally contact each and every person that submits an employment application. We do request that you do not call or email Norwegian Cruise Line to inquire about the status of your application.

Norwegian Cruise Line only contacts those applicants that are selected to proceed in the recruitment process.  Typically Norwegian contacts those applicants by either telephone or email. When checking your email for any type of notification from Norwegian Cruise Line, please be sure to check your junk or spam email folders as your email filter may send emails from Norwegian to those folders. Once a job is filled, Norwegian will send out correspondence to all job applicants that were not selected.
