Royal Caribbean has announced that it has been named to the Forbes List of Best Large Employers for 2017. Forbes surveyed employees at mid-size and large companies or institutions. Respondents at those companies were asked to rate their employer on the quality of the work environment and whether they would recommend their company to potential employees as one of the most important factors in the assessment. 

America's Best Employers are chosen by Forbes based on an independent survey from a sample of 30,000 American employees working for large or mid-size companies. The employees responded anonymously through several online panels so they could openly state an opinion without influence from their employer. The survey was conducted on companies from all industry sectors employing more than 1,000 employees in the United States

Royal Caribbean is a global cruise vacation company that owns three global brands: Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises. Royal Caribbean is a 50 percent joint venture owner of the German brand TUI Cruises, a 49 percent shareholder in the Spanish brand Pullmantur and a minority shareholder in the Chinese brand SkySea Cruises. Together, these brands operate a combined 48 ships with an additional 13 on order. They operate itineraries that call on approximately 535 destinations on all seven continents.
