Disney Cruise Line has hired Leslie Lopez as a human resources manager to support its employment efforts in The Bahamas.

In his new role, Lopez, a long-time HR professional, will build relationships with key business partners and recruit Bahamians for positions both on board the cruise line’s ships and at its premier destinations in the country.


“Disney Cruise Line is committed to employing a majority Bahamian workforce at Castaway Cay in Abaco and our forthcoming experience at Lighthouse Point in Eleuthera. Leslie’s global HR experience and his deep understanding of Bahamian culture will be instrumental in achieving our goal,” said Michael Almeida, Director, Human Resources, Disney Cruise Line.

Lopez said, “I am most excited to showcase the diverse talents and abilities of the Bahamian people and introduce them to a variety of quality jobs with Disney Cruise Line. I am confident that Disney’s commitment to building and supporting career paths for people throughout the Bahamas – including but not limited to Abaco and Eleuthera – will have a positive long-term effect throughout the islands.”
