Privacy policy

Our privacy policy aims to detail the data we collect and how the data collected is used in the recruitment process. It also details the option candidates have to access their data and if necessary update the information provided to Cruise Carreras.

During each step of the recruitment process, Cruise Carreras takes all necessary steps to ensure that all your personal data is well protected and secured. We are committed to providing you a recruitment process that is safe, secure and trustworthy. As such we only collect the personal data we need in order to allow you to be successful at securing a position with one of the cruise lines with whom we have established recruitment partnerships.

Should you have any questions or concerns about our practices or any of the policies listed below, you are invited to contact our offices by writing to All mail received in this mailbox will be treated as promptly as possible.

What personal data is collected?

Cruise Carreras only collects the personal data necessary to provide the companies we work with a clear professional profile of each candidate. The companies we work with all have strict and different recruitment guidelines and each of the companies may require company-specific personal data from each candidate in order to make a hiring decision.

During the initial phase of the recruitment process which consists essentially of introducing qualified candidates to the companies we work with, we may require personal data such as:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Contact details
  • Email addresses
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Date of Birth (some cruise lines require that Food & Beverage candidates be a minimum of 21-years of age in order to be allowed to serve alcoholic beverages)
  • Other data that could be required by one of the Companies we work with

At the request of the companies we work with and only once a job offer has been secured, we may be required by some of the companies we work with to collect additional personal data. This additional data is used to check references prior to confirming employment offer or prepare new hires to join the companies for whom they have been selected.

In this second and last phase of the recruitment process, when an employment offer has been extended to a candidate by one of the companies we work with, we may require personal data such as:

  • Letters of references
  • Medical certificates
  • Copies of diplomas and certificates
  • Copies of ID documents
  • Copies of criminal records
  • Birth certificates

What do we do with the data collected?

We want to ensure that we only collect from candidates the personal data required by the companies we work with and the fact that this data is only used for the sole objective of securing employment for the candidates. In order for the companies we work with to evaluate the professional profiles of the candidates we forward to them for review, we are required to forward the companies we work with some of the personal data we collect from candidates. Therefore, it is expected that some of the data we receive from candidates will be forwarded to the companies we work with in order for these companies to be able to evaluate the professional profiles of each candidate and make hiring decisions. We only work with established and reputable companies and trust that these companies have all implemented strict privacy policies and we confirm that the personal data sent to these companies will only be used for recruitment purposes and will not be used for commercial purposes.

How long do we keep your data?

Your personal data such as your CV and other documents sent along with your CV will be kept for a duration of 6 months from the day it is received by Cruise Carerras. After that time period, your personal data will be deleted from our server.
