    I've seen some cruise ship security jobs posted on Monster, just 2-3 months ago.

      Go to these cruise line websites. They always have jobs openings. I thought about it, but I don't have water legs.

        Yeah, Ive been searching around, all I seem to come up with are these ridiculous "Send us 1 Payment of 49.95 and we will forward your resume to all the cruise ships!" No thanks... I can really do that myself... just uh... hook me up with some addresses?

            Ship Security Officer

            Here is a link to the job description for Ship Security Officer for Norweigan Cruise Lines. This actually sounds like a cool job, but you must have either police or military experience to apply. It is not an observe and report type position.

              Any of these positions armed? What would be the regulations for such, seeing that (I think) alot of the time you'd spend in international waters?

              I sure would not like the idea of being the person who's "the athority" on the boat, but not be equipped as such.

                I don't know if they are armed or not. Back in 1996 I went on a weekend cruise to Mexico and the uniformed security guards I saw on the ship were unarmed.

                That does not mean that there were no firearms on board, however.

                  You would think that in this new age of terrorisim fears, that the cruise ships had some tight security.

                  Heck, could you imagine some of the drunks you'd have to deal with?

                    I know that on at least 3 boats for one gambling company (small time outfit), there was a First Mate's Armory on the bridge, which included some full auto support weapons, a few shotguns, and a few Glock 17s.

                    When SunCruz bought the boats, they removed all the weapons. The First Mate was no longer responsible for security aboard the ship, they were to sail back to Florida and request USCG and Florida Marine Patrol assistance.

                      Hey Brian, there's a company in Seattle called SecureTrans. They do a lotof work at the terminals and such, screening passengers. If I recall correctly, they also use "sea guards" onboard. It's a real time commitment though. I have a buddy who was thinking about doing it, I'll email him and get some more info for ya.
