TOUR INSPIRES FUTURE SEAFARERS

Eleven Sea Cadets from Southampton experienced an exclusive tour and Q&A with senior crew of P&O Cruises’ flagship Britannia on Saturday 9 July, which may spark an interest for a career at sea.

The tour started with an exciting visit to the bridge, followed by a unique opportunity to speak first hand to Britannia’s cruise ship senior crew and ask their own questions to help inspire their career paths. Cadets toured areas of the cruise ship including the Headliners’ Theatre and Cookery Club, the ship’s state of the art cookery school at sea, and finished with a lunch at one of ten on board restaurants.

Commanding Officer at Sea Cadets Southampton Unit, Lieutenant (SCC) Mark Lampert RNR, says: “We are hugely privileged to be invited to tour Britannia. It will inspire our cadets for a future career at sea, will open up new opportunities and broaden their horizons."
