What you can expect on your stay

Usually on four-hour shifts, you’ll handle physical tasks such as chipping rust off metalwork, and bridge / cargo watch keeping, which involves monitoring equipment and looking out for other vessels. You’ll also shadow more senior crew and help monitor pump operations, maintain equipment and more. In time, you’ll learn to plan the ship’s passage and learn all about anchoring, docking and cargo operations.
Three months on, three months off sounded fantastic, as did the starting wage for officers. I liked the idea of travelling whilst working and I have always loved being on the water.Jess Huxley,deck cadet
