Promote an active lifestyle for our residents while still continuing their profession
Create deeper connections within the community
Provide wider engagement for the professionals onboard
Reduce overall crew required
Some of our crew positions will be filled by residents. These may be short term and casual in nature. All applicants must have an active license in good standing
The remuneration for these roles will be inline with typical crew rates for the required position.
These positions attract a higher rate similar to what you may currently be receiving in your ‘land-based’ life. See notes on ‘Conducting General Business’ in the FAQ below for more on this.
For those wishing to conduct business or continue your professional occupation from the ship as an integral part of your daily life, we offer a package with benefits and priority to allow for such activities.
For those wishing to take crew positions, there will need to be some form of formality to the application, which may include:
There may be some requirements for training, depending on the role/duty, the contractual agreement and the class/flag rules. An example of this may include basic training to work at sea - a Safety Of Lives At Sea (SOLAS) requirement.
Some positions will not be offered (such as housekeeping) for security and privacy reasons.
While we don’t set any age limits, there are regulations. We encourage younger residents to earn money and we have interest from some parents asking about such opportunities. This is an important part in any growing child's future to learn.
This will depend on the requirement of the request. For example a doctor needing to use space, reception services, lab work, etc may be charged higher amounts than a business consultant using a desk or ad hoc table in a dining room somewhere. Fees cover things such as liability, space, listing in the directory, etc.
Yes, private works and businesses that do not involve the ship or its passengers have no requirement to inform Storylines, so long as the business is legal.
We call this a Crossover position. Some positions may have a crossover in both areas. These will be taken case-by-case and attributed based on resident load for the service. Some examples of these types of positions may include a beautician or a personal trainer. The crew will have a personal trainer to cover some of the demand and included services, while a resident professional may cover other things not included (such as private one-on-one sessions and specialty programs delivered only by that resident).
*Any employment or contractor opportunities may be subject to approval by the International Labour Organization and the Bahamian authorities. Maritime employment regulation requirements for being a crew member of a ship may apply.
