    Re: The waiting game!

    SHouldnt be long, if longer thana week get on the e-mail or phone to your sponsor, alot of cadets know where theya re going months in advance (I already know the names of 2 cadets joining here in March, mind oyu they might not know!)

    No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

      How long is a piece of string? Have a bag packed and wait for the phone; it might be a week, a month, they might phone tomorrow and say, 'get yourself to the airport tomorrow'. I have waited 1 month and nearly 2 months as a cadet only to get a phone call telling me to leave a couple of days later. frustrating, but you are being paid(ish).

          See you here then...should have been Suez south bound but some sort of local difficulty seems to have put the stopper on that

              Soon enough, though the current deck cadets know of this place and know CharlieDelta quite well, not sure if they are on here at all though

                I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

                  I was worried that I'd be waiting ages for a berth as I'm sponsored by Trinity House, but happily they found one with Holland America about 3 weeks before the end of phase 1.
