CMV showing Bromley students the ropes

Cruise and Maritime Voyages was playing host last to a group of Travel & Tourism students from Bromley College in Kent, on board their cruise ship Astoria at the London Cruise Terminal in Tilbury. CMV ships are always seen in the Terminal opposite the Gravesend quayside. Some twenty students and teachers toured the classic ocean liner before the ship set sail for a cruise around the British Isles they were able to learn about the cruise business and the CMV product offering.

Miranda Coates, HR Manager at CMV’s head office based in Purfleet said, “This visit comes at an exciting time; we have just announced new extra sailings on Astoria from Poole and Portsmouth in 2018, the first time using these UK departure points for CMV. We also took delivery in April of our latest fleet addition Columbus which will join us this year and will be seen in Tilbury for three days between 8 – 10 June”.

The students were hosted by Demi Starck and Karen Kempster from CMV’s HR Team who talked to the group about career pathways in the Cruise industry and work experience opportunities, while students were treated to tea and coffee in the delightful Sirenes Bar. They then embarked on a tour of the 550 passenger ship, led by Olga Usik (CMV’s on board Guest Services Host), and the students were given a valuable insight into the workings and facilities on board this popular cruise ship. They finished by enjoying a delicious three course lunch and were then shown around the expanding Cruise Terminal and port area by Debi Aldwinckle from the Port of Tilbury.

The visit was the second of five student visits planned this year. Other visits will take place on both Magellan and the latest vessel Columbus when CMV will showcase more of their fleet of ships to Travel & Tourism students from Kent, Essex and the London area.
