About us

This website was first launched as Cruise Ship Jobs site in late 2000 by Jay Dravecky with contribution from Captain Juraj Boroš. The site grew in popularity and in mid-2000 became one of the most popular websites within the niche, by then rebranded as the Free Guide to Cruise Ship Jobs under the domain name.

Job listings were separated from the website and a brand new job board, All Cruise Jobs, was launched in 2008.

In March 2019 the site was rebranded again as Cruise Jobs Guide and launched under a new domain name:
