Royal Caribbean to Build School for Seafarers in Manila

   September 24, 2017 ,   Cruise Industry

Leading global operator Royal Caribbean Cruises is betting big on human resources from the Philippines by teaming up with STI ESG (STI Education Services Group Inc.) to build a training center for seafarers in Manila.

The world-class facility, named RCL-STI CTDC (Cruise Talent Development Centre), is due to produce more Filipino seafaring talents prepared to take on thousands of hotel roles on cruise liners, STI revealed in a recent disclosure to Philippine Stock Exchange.

The two parties signed a MoU (memorandum of understanding) for the creation of RCL-STI CTDC which will follow Royal Caribbean standards in providing training for hospitality jobs aboard cruise ships.

The MoU will benefit Filipino workers, who currently account for a 5th of the total global workforce onboard the ships of RCL’s brands.

The leading company began the approach via the opening of RCCL Crew Management Inc., its own manning office in the country, last year.
