Certified Cruise Hospitality Manager (CCHM)

Your Journey to Excellence & Fun

September 01, 2024 through 15, 2024

It all starts from the school’s campus where a 20 hour cruise introduction course will be delivered for Cruise Hospitality Management. This will be enough to excite and prepare your students for the amazing trip onboard one of the biggest cruise ships in the world. A one week cruise starting from Barcelona in Spain with stops in beautiful sunny Palma De Mallorca, Marseille France and then Italy to historic Rome and then on to Naples with the active volcano of Pompai.

While students will be cruising and visiting different destinations almost every day, a 4 hours a day training course will be conducted with our experienced Professor of cruise hospitality and currently Hotel Director onboard. During their free time onboard they will be able to mingle around the hotel areas of the ship and get to experience in first hand the operations onboard. From housekeeping services, restaurant operations, galley/kitchen, reception, entertainment  and more, the ship is their onboard campus for one week.
