Cruise Hospitality Director CV Template

Equivalent to a guest relations director, the Cruise Hospitality Director does the same job of ensuring that the resources of the ship are accessible for the delectation of its guests while traveling at sea.  Anyone aware with the TV series The Love Boat will easily recognize the part of Cruise Director Julie McCoy played by Lauren Tewes as one.  The job calls for keeping passengers have the time of their lives while on board, from adoring it leisure facilities, savoring the epicurean delights on its restaurants, and getting treated to ballroom dancing live shows, games or competitions.
