American Cruise Lines, the largest cruise line in the United States, is looking to add multiple Executive Chefs to our shipboard team as we gear up for the busiest part of our operating season on America’s rivers. Our shipboard team supports a combined fleet of ships sailing through various different itineraries across the nation from contemporary riverboats to paddlewheel queens for a steamboat experience.
We make it a top priority to offer a first-class dining experience at every meal. Exceptional cuisine is prepared by chefs who have extensive culinary credentials and training from some of the most prestigious culinary institutes. Using only the freshest ingredients, menus are inspired by regional and local specialties. The Shipboard Executive Chef is responsible for delivering the best tasting food a culinary experience at every meal. This is a hands on working position. The Executive Chef will be intimately involved with every plate served to our passengers through general planning, preparation, and presentation. We are seeking those who will possess leadership and management skills while directing, coaching, supporting, supervising, and evaluating the performance of all Galley Crew Members.
While living onboard, our Chefs enjoy comfortable living quarters and a challenging culinary working environment. Our Galleys are new and well equipped with a spectacular view.
American Cruise Lines has 10 ships throughout our fleet, 3 of which are on the Mississippi River. The America and the Queen of the Mississippi are modern paddlewheelers reminiscent of steamboats from a bygone era, while the American Song is a brand new riverboat with contemporary décor and styling unlike anything else in the U.S. We have additional ships on both the East Coast and in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
