Hubert Rolle has been named by Disney Cruise Line as Castaway Cay’s new Island Operations Director. Rolle’s position is the most senior leadership role on Castaway Cay, and serves to oversee all daily operations on the island.
“I’m grateful to Disney for this leadership opportunity. This pandemic has had a significant impact on tourism throughout The Bahamas and I know that, for many Bahamians, this has meant unexpected hardship. I’m proud to work for an organization that is dedicated to providing opportunities for my fellow Bahamians even as the industry charts its recovery. I look forward to building an incredible team as we work toward a successful restart of our cruise operations and welcoming our guests back to The Bahamas.” ~Hubert Rolle
Rolle’s appointment to the position marks the beginning of a new approach for filling Castaway Cay crew member positions as Disney Cruise Line will now seek to fill all island positions with Bahamian citizens. According to Disney Cruise Line Vice President of Human resources, Yvonne Sweeney, “Our pause in operations has given us a chance to evaluate how we operate Castaway Cay. While we’ve always had a significant number of job opportunities for Bahamians, we’ve made the decision to expand on these efforts and commit to filling all positions on the island with Bahamians. We’ve seen such strong talent in The Bahamas, and we recognize that it’s more important than ever to hire locally.”
According to a statement from Disney, “Approximately 75 percent of the cruises offered by Disney have at least one stop in The Bahamas, all four of its ships are registered in The Bahamas and it is estimated that Disney Cruise Line operations currently contribute more than $70 million toward the Bahamas’ gross domestic product annually.”
Disney Cruise Line Castaway Cay positions are available now, and more information regarding the openings can be found at DCLjobs.com. Competitive compensation and benefits are features of all of the open positions.
