As cruise holidays are becoming increasingly popular and affordable, a career in cruise services can be interesting and rewarding. However, in Hong Kong, pursuing such a career can be difficult as the needed skills, qualifications and career path are not well known. As Hong Kong is one of the busiest seaports in the world and a hub for cruise holidays, the prospects for a successful career at sea are very good.

*Equip individuals with the knowledge and skills about a career in cruise services;

*Assist individuals in acquiring the relevant skills and internationally recognized qualifications to succeed in a career of cruise services, including endorsements on the Seamen Booklet;

*Bridge the supply of talents in Hong Kong with the international cruise industry and
