  • Cruise ship apprentice

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    Seems like a good way to get some experience on cruise ships as most companies seem to require previous experience.

      That's what I thought...
      I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

        It does a bit, but it does seem like an easier route into the cruise industry, as no one seems to want to take new officers without passenger experience.

          I don't think it's that strict for juniors. Most of the folks I went to college with are on Cruise ships and very few of them had passie experience...

            It's intended more for those who are training in other countries that do not have a sponsored cadetship scheme and who require sea time for their licence - several of the cruise lines (and all the RCCL group of companies) have similar "vacancies"... although there is nothing to stop UK applicants who have qualified from applying.

            You will note that an OOW licence is not a requirement - although it doesn't state it there, but the ones with the other companies simply state either "Studying to obtain or having recently obtained an OOW licence".
            ?Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn?t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.?

              I went into cruise ships after my cadetship, with only one trip as OOW under my belt on cargo ships, and joined as a 4th Officer. Remained a 4th Officer for about 2 months and built up the confidence and knowledge to sail as 3/O. Seemed like a good plan to me.
