Disney Cruise Line recently completed a highly successful recruitment drive at Queen’s Hall in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, on May 15 and 16, 2024. Supported by the Ministry of Tourism, this initiative aimed to fill various roles within the cruise line, including positions in Food and Beverage, Guest Services, Galley Jobs, Lifeguards, and Culinary sectors.

Thanks to an extensive advertising campaign in local newspapers and online, a staggering number of applicants showed interest. Out of over 5,000 e-applications received, the Meridian Recruitment Agency Limited shortlisted 150 candidates for further screening. Ultimately, 80 candidates were selected for in-person interviews conducted by Disney’s recruiters.

The results have been overwhelmingly positive: more than 90% of the interviewees are expected to receive letters of intent from Disney Cruise Line. Commenting on this achievement, Minister of Tourism, Culture, and the Arts, Randall Mitchell, expressed his delight in supporting such initiatives, noting the tremendous opportunities they offer for local talent to showcase their cultural heritage and professional skills while gaining valuable international experience.

The collaboration between Disney Cruise Line and Meridian Recruitment Agency has not only opened up professional avenues for Trinidadians but also reinforced the strong ties between the tourism bodies of the nation and global cruise operators. All successful applicants can expect an official email confirmation from Disney Cruise Line soon.
