BY PARTNERING WITH US, hospitality schools gain access to industry professionals as lecturers, delivering online, on-campus, or onboard training experiences.
We also provide trainers/lecturers which are cruise industry professionals that can be hired for your college existing cruise management programs.
Our ultimate mission is to revolutionize hospitality education, be the leader in cruise hospitality, and provide equal opportunities for students to choose their career path in land or sea.

Cruise Hospitality’s Journeys to Excellence are multi-country study program experiences, tailored specifically to hospitality management undergraduate and postgraduate students around the world, emphasizing comparative academic examination, hands-on hospitality field experiences and mastery of cruise industry specific hospitality management. Our different programs offer the opportunity for all hospitality management students to choose from studying in their college campus, online, or onboard a luxury cruise ship.

Our Cruise Hospitality Students get to discover remote islands, visit different countries, study and have fun in their journey of becoming a certified Cruise Hospitality Manager. With each new country, the students have new experiences, new things to learn, new foods to try and new ways of looking at the world. They are able to compare one way of living to another, just in a single seaside journey from one place to the next.

They get opportunities to meet with cruise line management leaders and teams such as the hotel director, the f&b director, the restaurant manager, the executive chef, the pursers, the housekeeping teams, have a tour at the galleys/kitchens onboard and more. At the meantime of course all our students get to have fun while taking part of our educational journeys through all different classes, cruise ship venues and discover hospitality as they have never experienced it before!

One of our ´Journeys to Excellence´ programs, is the ‘Certificate in Luxury Cruise Hospitality Management‘. The program integrates seamlessly into hospitality management degree curriculums or can be offered as a standalone course.
