  • First Ship

    Hello Everyone!

    Just got my joining instructions for my first ship.

    Noble Ace
    Car Carrier

    Feels like its actually happening now, pretty excited! Hard to tell but I think she runs Europe-Asia as the ports are pretty repetitive when you check up on the ships route.

    Could end up pretty useful as all going well I hope to work with the likes of Stena/P&O/Calmac/ect once I complete the cadetship, and i've heard that Car Carrier cargo ops can be quite a useful experience when going for ferries.

    So my question is, what's it like on the floating boxes? accommodation/crew facilities?
    What's the work like? She was built in 2011 so i'm sure she will be UMS.

    Almost certainly UMS so expect to work 0800-1200 and 1300 to 1700 or 1800 depending on the chief. Plus a bit extra for arrivals / departures and evening rounds every few days with the duty engineer.

    On such a new ship I would expect basic, but clean and comfortable accommodation with a gym and a TV lounge (which may or may not be the evening meeting place for the crew)

    Sure you will have a good time.
    Go out, do stuff
