We are an active bunch of people who engage – we get involved in life, work and play.
We enjoy each other’s company, we’re open to meeting new people, and making more friends around the world.
We help one other, we pass on what we know and we learn from those around us – we know it makes us stronger.
Basically, when joining Global Casino Operations, we choose to remove ourselves from the security of our family and friends at home to become part of a new and exciting world onboard…it won’t take too long before you have a new network of friends onboard. We’d even go as far as to say, some of your shipboard Casino colleagues will soon feel like family members to you.
Meet some of our team-members, in their own words:
Ciprian joined the Casino Department in 2006, though he originally started working for Carnival in the Hotel Department. He says “this has been great. I feel really good and it is especially nice to participate in outdoor outings with my team mates, such as the zip line tour in Jamaica, and other onboard activites, like the crew party. These types of ‘get togethers’ help to build a stronger sense of team work, bringing us all closer to one other, and is great for morale.
Living and working onboard has been a lot of fun – it’s great getting to knowing people from different countries and cultures, living harmoniously. In the casino I ‘ve had a chance to meet a variety of people from different cultures and I’ve made a lot of friends.
