Angelo Tramontana is one of the longest-serving team members at Selection Partners.

We have an important role in the recruitment and retention of great crew talent. We are committed to keep our new hires informed and prepared for their exciting journey ahead, assisting them with all the required documentation to be travel ready.

As of July 1, 2023, newly hired Hotel crewmembers will have their joining ticket covered by the Company. RCCL will also cover the associated travel expenses at the joining destination. The joining travel expenses include airfare, hotel accommodation and ground transportation. We know that this change in the air-ticket policy will help a lot to get more good candidates.
