The cruise line has recently signed a memo of understanding with tourism officials to begin hiring from there.
Seatrade Cruise News reports that the Royal Caribbean group has signed a memo of understanding with tourism officials in Trinidad and Tobago, agreeing to recruit crew and staff members from the islands.
The Royal Caribbean Group has recently signed agreements with Antigua and Barbados to begin recruiting there. The agreement in Barbados was also a way of saying thank you for the help they received from the island during the pandemic. When other islands were turning away cruise ships because of Covid, Barbados stepped up to assist in repatriating crew and guests.
Recruiting in these islands will also help illuminate the curent staff shortage and will help build better relationships with important partners.
According to Sea Trade, Wendy McDonald, regional VP Government relations for Royal Caribbean Group, signed the MOU with Tourism Minister Randall Mitchell today in Port-of-Spain.
