    Right then about me

    2nd Engineer, worked Deep sea Reefers, Large & small cruise ships, ferries and currently North Sea Oil Rig Supply.

    I've been at sea for a decade now and consider myself pretty experienced on something. I however don't have all the answers.

    feel free to ask me questions, I'll try to give you a blunt honest balanced reply.

    I'm an engineer though so don't ask me about latest chart updates and so on, but I can answer questions about life at sea and stuff.

    Cheers Ta

    which cruise companies have you worked with? im with RCL and due to start my first sea phase from 5th august, though still no confirmed time or departure
    "My Job"

    It's not my place to run the boat
    the fog horn I can't blow.

    It's not my place to say just where
    the boat's allowed to go

    It's not my right to dock the boat
    or even clang the bell

    But let the damn thing
    start to sink AND SEE WHO CATCHES HELL!

            Welcome and Hello there!
            I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

            All posts here represent my own opinion and not that of my employer.

              Most of the brands under the Carnival UK brand, You probably won't hear until 2 weeks before your placement. Don't worry, you get used to this hurry up and wait feeling!

                Yeah - bit more than was planned, that was just a blog for someone elses benefit! I thought the list of things to take to sea that no one tells you was going to be more useful!!

                      Own bedsheets? Actually, in saying that one of our coxswains had his own pink duvet cover. Sixty-something male, with a pink duvet cover. Worrying.

                        Yeah, I cant sleep in the poly ones - to hot/sweaty - not good.

                        Got 100% cotton ones from M&S couple of trips ago - very comfy.
