    Hi,

    I just completed my cadetship with Northern marine and I found the on-board training excellent.
    NMM are a part of Stena...
    I have been offered a job, and the majority of cadets do.
    I was only on Ro-Ros and Ro-Pax as a cadet (through choice) and they are allowing me to move to tankers now I have qualified.

    Hope that helps.

    Have been told by my training officer that I'll be on tanker and when phase 4 rolls around, ill spend a few weeks on a ferry in the Irish Sea, then the remainder off the phase on a Gas Carrier. Quite happy with this to be honest, I think the variation will give me invaluable experience, as a lot of people will serve their cadetships on exclusively 1 type of ship.

    In my personal opinion NMM are very good and have been very good to me this far.

    Any questions, just ask.
    Hello, I agree NMM are a good sponsor company to get. However you may not be guaranteed to do time on oil and gas tankers. In my class only me and one other boy out of 8 did this. The rest of the lads were purely on oil tankers.
    They will try their best though to give you some varied ship types.

    The Navigators are a good fleet of newly acquired LPG ex-Maersk ships/new builds, good conditions on board and they are in the process of installing wi-fi onboard, you might have it, possibly not. Generally mixed crew. There's a couple of guys on here I know who have been on the Navigators maybe they can tell you some more.

    was on Stena Performance, ships the same. Wifi was decent but depends on the HDG + time of day, gym has enough to work with, table tennis also available.

    The ships can roll a lot because of the extra width.

    On the whole though they are dead on. Had a decent contract and wouldn't mind going back on another PMAXX.

    if you tell me what vessel your going on I can tell you if it has internet, get viber on your phone or something, but I regularly use facebook chat to keep in touch.

    My advice though, the more time you think about home, trying to stay connected everyday etc, the harder it makes the trip. I just tend to forget about home, write to my friends/mum or who ever once every week or two. My contracts fly in.

    I don't think all of their vessels have internet but believe most of the Stena tankers do. Thats just from people I know that work for them.

    I also asked because I'm planning on taking something to watch films on- if and when i get free time, so I wanted to know about potential Internet/wifi connection on the ships.
