    Nice one Mr. Ram. We are looking for the Courses and job openings for a catering service from your blog. Is that course only belongs to marine catering or general one?

    Hello sir .. iam complete may diploma in hotel management now I am looking for a job in cruise ships then Which course should I take next?

    1. Ram Govindasamy says:

      Hello, congratulations on completing your diploma. To join cruise ships, hotel experience is a must. First join leading hotels and gain some experience. Without experience your profile is not going to be valued.
      While you work for a hotel you have to do 5 stcw courses, then apply for cdc, continuous discharge certificate. These 2 are mandatory requirements to join any ship.
      Thanks all the best
