An American-based Norwegian cruise line will recruit more Myanmar seafarers after they initially hired more than 100 Myanmar seamen earlier this year, it was learnt from the maritime recruitment service agency.
Myanmar seamen are known to be hardworking with skilled manners, making them ideal employees, officials said. The cruise lines plan to recruit again during this year. Myanmar seafarers enjoy the rights provided by the Norwegian cruise line. Therefore, this is a win-win situation for both sides, said Ko Wai Min from maritime recruitment service agency.
The seamen who will be employed by the Norwegian cruise line will provide services on the luxury cruise liners that sail around the globe. These seamen will be hired from US$500 to US$1,800, depending on their rank. The maritime recruitment service agency will start to recruit Myanmar seamen starting the last week of August.
Myanmar seafarers will work together with those from European countries as well as Indonesia, The Philippines and Singapore. Those interested can visit the website of this cruise line via https://www.ncl.com/ for further information.
