Join our crew!

Make the majestic Danube River your home away from home. Become a crew member today and live your best life aboard one of our luxury cruise ships!

Many people pay top dollar to sail aboard the Albertina, the Princess Isabella, the Princess Sisi, or the Princess Katharina so they can explore the enchanting cities of Budapest, Vienna, and Passau from a nautical new perspective. But as a member of our crew, you can experience all of that for free – and get paid while doing it! It’s an exciting job and a great opportunity to save money whilst meeting interesting people from all around the world.

Life on board

Our ships are equipped to meet the highest industry standards, and we expect nothing less from our crew. Most of our guests come from German-speaking countries – i.e. Germany, Austria, and Switzerland – so fluency in German or English is a must for servicing our guests.

Enjoy all the perks that come with being a crew member, including free meals and accommodation provided to you all throughout your voyage. Depending on your position, you’ll be set up in a comfortable single- to triple-occupancy cabin.

Working on a Riseday cruise liner means traversing Europe’s most picturesque rivers and canals from March to October. And during the winter season, our vessels also play host to charming Christmas cruises, offering a unique way to celebrate the holidays.

While extended periods away from home are part of the job, thrilling adventures await those who are ready to embrace them. So why not seize the opportunity? Reach out to us today and become part of our team where you’ll make magical memories that last a lifetime.
