MANILA, Philippines - At least 47,000 jobs are open for Filipino seafarers and other others seeking to work aboard international cruise ships.

Labor and Employment  Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz said cruise ships hire people without college degrees and   prefer those with working experience in hotels, casinos and spas, as well as in the fields of beauty and health, information and technology and security.

The basic skills and related requirements for jobs on cruise ships are a high school diploma, experience and proficiency in spoken and written English, she added.

Baldoz said about 47,000 jobs will be created when 15 new international cruise ships  come into service this year.

“Cruise vacations are becoming more popular, so global demand is expected to increase in the next five years with new cruise ships to be put in operation,” she said.

Cruise ships hire entertainment and service crew to cater to the needs of passengers, she added.
