  • Indian officers in cruise industry and FPSO

    hello...are you aware of companies(manning and ownerships) that recruit indian officers (Third Officers) on cruise ships and FPSOs ? iam keen on changing over to fpso or cruise from conventional ships..i have sailed on aframax tankers but not on vlcc's, so that i believe is a sort of a pre-requisite for FPSO vessels.

    Hi Chester_street

    I cant help with the fpso's but out of the 2 big cruise players - Carnival have a couple of indian officers but they are normally UK / European residents (if you are living in the UK this may be an option) the other big one RCCL recruit worldwide so its always worth throwing your CV in. If you get no joy with them it could be worth while exploring manning agents such as V-Ships etc as they normally have a couple of cruise vessels on their books.

    I will say that IMHO the cruise companies are getting a bit more fussy on who they are taking on so make sure your CV is top notch!
