Gema pedestal RT / RW: 018/06, Sand Koci, Weak Abang, Cikarang 17550, Indonesia Phone: +62-21-8990-1138, to train the Holland America Line crew either new hire or repeater crew.

Most cruise ships operating in the United States, Europe, and Australia.

* Departure toCruises

After Visa obtained, hired new crew will wait for the departure. Schedule of departure is usually obtained at the time crew through the above process. Most after getting a visa, hired new crew did not wait too long (between 2 weeks to 3 months). However, it all depends on the Agency who had hired and the process. There are up to wait months and months even years to wait for departure, though in the end went well.
Thus the recruitment process for our cruise which can be from various sources trusted. Please note that the agency is not a broker, you should not apply to brokers with upfront charge and promise very tempting. Agency did not collect fees in the recruitment process (screening applications), and only ask for a reasonable fee for the process documentation, training, etc.. Most yacht brokers sell dreams to those who lay with the promise must go, must be accepting, etc.. So, just be careful when you decide to join Cruise Line Employment Agency, do not you wasting time and useless waste of money in large amounts for nothing. Good Luck everyone ....
