TUI Cruises picks Columbia Cruise Services to appoint medical staff

CCS is already technical manager for TUI Cruises’ luxury brand, Hapag Lloyd Cruises
Starting this June, Columbia Cruise Services (CCS) will recruit medical staff on behalf of TUI Cruises for its Mein Schiff fleet.

‘Medical professionals are vital members of any cruise ship operation – especially during a pandemic,’ commented Olaf Groeger, MD, Columbia Cruise Services.

‘Columbia has a wealth of experience in recruiting and managing medical personnel, giving TUI Cruises access to experienced, highly trained doctors and nurses at a time when the global medical industry is suffering a skills shortage.’

It is already technical manager for Hapag Lloyd Cruises – TUI Cruises' luxury brand. 

Global network of crewing offices 

CCS will draw on its network of crewing offices around the globe to source doctors and nurses.
