Seatrade Cruise Talks: Crewing Challenges In A Changing World

In a session first aired at Seatrade Cruise Virtual, listen in as our expert panel dive into some of the questions surrounding crewing in the current climate and the future.

The cruise industry has been put in the spotlight of mainstream news for many reasons throughout the pandemic, not least the difficulties of keeping the crew safe on board and returning them home.

Join moderator Linda Vazquez, Vice President, Account Development, Access Cruise, Inc. and industry experts Per Bjornsen, CEO, V.Ships Leisure, Jen Martin, Director of Field Staff and Expedition Development, Lindblad Expeditions, and Captain Nico Corbijn, Owner, Revéles Solutions, LLC as they discuss crewing in the current climate.

Questions we’ll dive into include:

How can we communicate with the crew to keep them engaged and look out for their mental health?

How can cruise lines benefit from the influx of job-seekers?

After the struggles of repatriating thousands of crew members, what does bringing them back on board look like - and will the crew even feel safe to return?
