    Hi Niall and welcome!

    I'm not an engineer, nor with Princess - I'm a deckie with Carnival but hey, it's almost the same!

    First trip engine cadets seem to spend much of their trips on daywork, mainly with the engine room fitters but a bit of time with hotel services too (particularly for lifeboat/rescue boat engine maintenance/repair). After that, it's on to watches, mainly working with the 3/Eng in the engine room but occasionally with the 2/Eng in the control room.

    That's just what I've heard from engineers I've been on ship with, so your mileage may vary!

        Oh the jokes one can make! Where do I start!?

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