  • You will have the chance to further develop your technical and mechanical skills, which you can use at all stages of your career, including a job ashore. You can learn how to navigate a huge ship through waters, storms and sea ice and you will even learn how to deal with a piracy threat!
  • The entertainment facilities in the common room and in your own room give you the chance to hang out during your free time with your fellow crew members.
