Cruise Ship Captain


#1

Does anyone know how many american cruise ship captain there are?
Is there any disadvantage of being american mariner in terms of getting hired even as a mate on a cruise ship?


#2

Forget it, there are virtually no U.S. cruise ship officers, the exception to the rule are those with an additional license from another country, Panama, etc.


#3

There is one or two American flagged cruise ship that I know of in existence and they operate in Hawaii.

NCL is reflagging the last big US flagged cruise line. From what I understand there’s still small cruise ships that are US flagged.
