Default 3rd interview with RCL

It's been a bit of a whirlwind week for me. Last friday I sent my CV off for consideration by a UK recruiter for Royal Caribbean, I received an email on the Saturday asking me if I was available for a Skype interview on Monday morning, at the end of that interview I was asked if I was available for another interview on Tuesday afternoon this time with the talent / entertainment department in Miami. I honestly thought the 2nd interview was the worse I had ever been part of, I was residing to the fact that I wouldn't hear anything back. Then yesterday (Friday) morning I got another email asking me if I was available for a 3rd interview this time over the phone with the HR department. Have been told by the recruiter here in the UK that this 3rd interview is just a formality.

I was wondering has anyone else been through such a rapid interview process? How long has it been for others after the 3rd interview before they were assigned a placement? I have read so many people say that it took months before they even heard back, so I'm a little bit shocked by how quick this has happened.

When you work in the cruise industry, it is important to keep the names and abbreviations straight.
RCL was Royal Cruise Line. They went out of business in 1994.
RCCL is Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.

Congrats. I had about a month wait after I sent in my CV before I was contacted by them. The first and second interview were within 3 days of each other. Been about a week and a half waiting for the 3rd phone interview.

Did they assign/offer you a ship at the end of the phone interview? Which position did you apply for? I applied for a lounge tech.

Good Luck safe travels

I'd heard a very large number stage techs didnt come back last year so I think they are in need of staff urgently.
