In nearly all cases there will be two Captains for each ship who will work back to back, The length of time that each stays onboard will be up to the individual company but it is quite often 4 months on and 4 months of. The senior captain in the company who will be called "The Commodore" will sail on the companies top and most prestigeous ship, nearly always the newest. in the fleet. So he will generally find himself moving around the fleet more frequently..

They are on the ship about half time, a few months on and an equal number of months off. At most cruise lines captains don't serve on a single ship. They rotate among all the ships the cruise line owns.
