    Pros

    Cheap holidays for friends, family and yourself. A very British establishment and it will always look good on the CV

    Cons

    Management, you feel are always one-step behind the major competitor.

    Independence of the Seas v Ventura?
    Independence wins hands down and its embarrassing. P&O have Noddy, that about sums it up!

    Unfortunately, it sometimes feels like you're made to feel grateful that CUK have given you a job. The latest internal empowerment course is a load of tosh devised by some consultant somewhere.

    P&O is like the BA of airlines - the tag line is almost identical. They sit there thinking they are the best - whilst all the time being overtaken by the competition and not actually realising it.

    It's run by people who were around during the dark ages and don't realise what a modern person wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try building a ship that shows a little inspiration, unlike the last 2 they've have had and the next one on order. P&O/Princess/Holland America/Cunard - all same ships just a different colour paint. The latest offering is based on a design 10 years old - nothing like being up-to-date is there boys!

    Competitors are building amazing ships with amazing facilities, P&O offer a circus, Noddy and a pathetic scalextric track - then wonder why anyone whos seen another cruise ship thinks its pants.

    Pros

    The company offers stability and a great work life balance. Very flexible and will allow you to come in on the weekends to make up time. Most managers are good and steady raises every year.

    Cons

    No room to grow at this company. Once you are in a position, there you shall stay unless you move to another department. Too much work is given to each employee to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and create room for advancement.

    I worked at Carnival Corporation full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Room for improvement to move to other departments that can lead to better pay. Opportunity to put requests for free cruises just pay taxes and tips.

    Cons

    Schedule is changes. There's bidding for schedule times and people that have seniority get the best times just like trying to get free cruises. You've to sell. You are on a point scale and if you don't meet your requirements will hear from a supervisor..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality control supervisors need to be more professional as far as focus on your employees' jobs, not to have your group as a social little group, and if you the supervisor don't like someone in your assigned group don't make his/her life a living hell.
