Is it hard getting a job on a cruise ship?
Do they accept anyone or is it a challenge?

Extremely easy if you’re from Malaysia

Depends on the job. The staff jobs, such as cabin attendant, bartender, food service, etc, entail working conditions that very few Americans (I'm assuming you are from the US) would put up with. The pay isn't very good, time off is in hours, not days, and you can't get off at any port. As such, it isn't a good way to "see the world". In 17 cruises, I've never met anyone from the US working one of those jobs.
Skilled jobs, like child care, massage therapy, that sort of thing, require a minimum of two years' experience, and in some cases, a college degree. The working conditions aren't nearly as bad as staff jobs.

You need at least 2 years of experience in high end industry: 3 star and up hotels and restaurants, or be a professional entertainer. The kids program staff all have degrees in childhood development

Lot more difficult than you think.
2-6 month contracts working 12+ hours a day 6-7 days a week for most positions (cooks, room stewards, waitstaff, etc). There's a reason why you don't see many, if any Westerners in those positions
