Generally, training is a 3 week programme;  however, this may be longer or shorter depending on your profession and which cruise line assignment.


Before your training is completed you will be assigned the cruise line and specific ship you will be joining. You will be given full details about where you will be joining this ship, and we will pay for your flight to that location. You will then start your first, of hopefully many, contracts.
