Welcome to The Olsen Way. 

In recent years, we have seen a new era emerging in cruising. 

There is a trend for everything to get bigger and busier, and for a cruise to be seen as an alternative to a large luxury resort, with a limitless flurry of activity. 

But this is not for us. 

We believe there is another way to cruise. A way that is based on five generations of seafaring.

Where cabins are called cabins and ships look like ships. 

Where the journey is as important as the destination.

In our world, smaller is better, and we believe in keeping the experience on board uncrowded, warm and civilised - treating passengers as guests, like the family run business we are.

It would be easy to follow the trends and go with the crowds. But we never will.

We are now looking for experienced Doctors to work on board our cruise ships, as part of a small medical team offering 24/7 cover for guests and crew, whilst travelling the world on our exciting global itineraries.

As the head of the medical team you will have broad experience of both general and cardiac emergency medicine with a minimum of 5 years working experience, working at sea mainly cruise ship would be an advantage. You will also be used to dealing with major trauma situations. Doctors with recent experience of handling Covid situation/patient will be an advantage.

  • Fluent in English both written and spoken;
  • Ability to deliver various trainings-service/USPH/ShipSAN;
