Guest Service Assistant Manager
Norwegian Cruise Line
Position Summary:
Directly responsible for the Guest Services Desk. This is a “front of the house” position that is highly visible
to guests and the Guest Services Staff. I ensure that guest requests or concerns are handled and resolved
in a quick, efficient and courteous manner. Warm, friendly, efficient service and follow-up to situations are
top priorities. I offer support and perform all of the same duties as the Guest Service Manager, including
problem solving, especially in the GSM’s absence. A schedule is setup whereby either the GSM or the
GSAM is on duty to cover the Guest Services Desk Area for most of the day/evening; both during peak
periods. The same rule applies to being on call; one and/or the other should be on call during off hours to
handle more serious guest matters that may arise.
Responsible for embarkation/disembarkation processes, electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (e-NOA/D)
and other pre-arrival/departure electronic submissions, non-U.S. guest documentation, proper completion
of all entry papers and ship clearances for each port of call, including the processing and clearance of
guests with Immigration and Customs, and accurately maintaining the guest manifest in Fidelio.
In order to consistently exceed guest expectations and provide the highest levels of product and services,
additional duties and responsibilities may be assigned as needed.
Essential Functions:
• Coordinates with the Guest Services Desk team to monitor service and quality control.
Assists the GSM with problem-solving per the Guest Recovery Program.
• Trains and motivates the Guest Services Staff to be consistently upbeat, friendly and
outgoing and fully familiar with the ship facilities. Ensures they adhere to the established policies and
procedures. In particular greeting guests, problem solving and follow-up to guests’ requests, telephone
etiquette, and use of the P.A. System.
• Reviews the Maintenance Control Log & Guest Concerns Log on a daily basis.
Reoccurring problems are escalated immediately in order to maintain a high-level of guest satisfaction and
to avoid complaints.
• Responsible for all Immigration, Customs and visa matters, the embarkation and
disembarkation process, ship certificates, and documentation that relate to port clearances.
• Primary liaison between the ship and local port agents for the Captain and passenger
related matters. Coordinates the disembarkation and embarkation setups and procedures with ship and
ground staff, as well as the clearance of the vessel with local authorities in each port of call.
• Ensures the passenger manifest is updated and accurate, reflecting stateroom changes,
guests boarding mid-voyage etc.
• Prepares and sends the passenger/crew e-NOA/D file to U.S. CBP and U.S. Coast Guard,
upon sailing or entry as required, and in accordance with U.S. government and international regulations.
