The onboard spa, fitness and salon department is operated by a third party concession. The largest of these concessions in the cruise industry is Steiner Leisure as they are the spa operator onboard numerous cruise lines. The other two concessions that operate onboard spas and salons are Canyon Ranch Spa at Sea and O Spa London.

Some of Steiner Leisure’s partners include Carnival Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Cunard Line, Disney Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises, P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Silversea Cruises, Windstar Cruises and The Yachts of Seabourn. Their job titles are listed below as headings but are standard between concessions.

The average salary will depend on itinerary, how many passengers are on board and how well the crewmember sells their services and the products. The Steiner Leisure website states that the Caribbean itineraries are traditionally very busy. Alternatively, ships cruising exotic itineraries are less busy and therefore salaries are lower.
