Imagine practicing as a doctor, nurse or paramedic on a luxury cruise ship with well-equipped and modern medical centres and cruising to exotic locations around the world.

As a medical professional working on board passenger cruise ships, that is just what you’ll be doing. You will become part of a close-knit team of cruise ship medical experts able to provide personal, one-on-one medical care to patients from start to finish. 

Life at sea will also give you the opportunity to experience the most beautiful, diverse locations in the world virtually every day – from the crystal clear warm waters and beaches of the Caribbean to the glaciers of the Baltic. You’ll sail down the Grand Canal of Venice and through the Panama or Suez Canals. 

From cycling in Holland, to zip-lining in the jungles of Costa Rica, scuba-diving in Hawaii to snorkeling in the Red Sea or swimming with wild dolphins in New Zealand – activities ashore never end! Explore the Amazon jungle and see the Taj Mahal in India, or the Eiffel tower in Paris, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil or the ruins of Pompeii. Take a stroll down las Ramblas in Barcelona in Spain. Or go whale watching, dog-sledding or glacier hiking in Alaska. Eat pizza in Pisa, tapas in Mallorca and enjoy a Long Island Iced Tea in New York City. Or just browse through the curios in Jamaica, take a nap under a palm tree in Tahiti and have lunch with friends in Sydney.
