Must be happy to cook separately for a toddler and nanny, and also take on occasional larger scale corporate or family events on board. Some dietary requirements within guests and crew, but nothing too complicated.

Caribbean & Bahamas cruising until May 2019 - busy but not crazy program. Summer 2019 cruising East Coast USA. Must have STCW10, unrestricted ENG1, & US passport or B1/B2 visa. We are a non smoking crew and the chef must be able to cook underway with no sea sickness issues. Female due to cabin arrangements & English as first language required. Good package available including seasonal & 13th month bonuses, training allowance, health insurance and annual flight. Start date mid/late January in St Martin.
