Hornblower Cruises & Events hosts job fair at pier 40, creating nearly 100 jobs in New York

Hornblower Cruises & Events New York, the newest port of one of America’s leading charter yacht and entertainment cruise companies, announces a job fair on Thursday, May 10, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., aboard the Hornblower Hybrid, docked at Pier 40.

The company plans to fill approximately 100 full- and part-time positions this year, and an additional 75 to 100 for 2013 for on-board wait and kitchen staff, pier and utility operators and ticket office representatives.

Launched in fall 2011 with the debut of the sustainable Hornblower Hybrid, the New York port will feature four luxury yachts running private charters, special event, and public dining and sightseeing cruises. The Hornblower Hybrid has operated special events and charters since winter and will roll out Saturday night dinner and cocktail cruises and Sunday brunch cruises open to the public this May. Regularly scheduled cruises begin on June 30 with the arrival of the newly renovated Hornblower Infinity.

With more than 30 years of experience in the charter and dining cruise industry, the company anchors its success on superior guest service and unparalleled quality.

“I’ve watched Hornblower grow from a small cruise operation out of Berkeley, into seven ports and substantial national park concessions,” said Terry MacRae, CEO of Hornblower Cruises & Events. “Throughout that growth, I’ve found that the secret to success is hiring the best people and allowing them to reach their full potential.”


Hornblower guides its crew under the Quality Quest (Q2) program and believes all team members are active and equal contributors to the quality of its day-to-day operations. The company aims to create amazing experiences for guests by adhering to a set of values that include respect, professionalism, communications and teamwork, while exerting hospitality behaviors that leave a lasting positive impression on guests.
