An internship on board a luxury yacht is actually a great opportunity as it’s very versatile. You will get to be familiarized with the main engine, generator, water makers, freezer system, fresh water system, seawater system, bilge system, fire system, air system, steering gear system, rudder system, radio system, washing machine, dryer, air-conditioning, icemaker, black water system, grey water system, black water treatment system, elevator, electrical system, satellite system, audio and video system and many other systems on board.
Working on a cruise ship will be similar to a commercial vessel. It has many deferent departments that you will rotate in. Each department has the same systems and equipment as on board a luxury yacht but each system in 50 times bigger.
Overall, you get to travel to different places while making your career trajectory increase so that when you do get to the point of wanting to put down roots and go land-based, you will be provided with better career options to choose from.
