Apprenticeship as hotel and hospitality assistant on TUI Cruises ships


September 23.09.2022 – Many aspects contribute to the success or failure of a cruise. A key factor in the success of a holiday on board the ships is the commitment of the crew. To ensure that this leads to success, TUI Cruises cruise ships offer training programs for hotel and hospitality assistants.

As far as the catering area on board the Mein Schiff fleet is concerned, the company uses the service provider “sea chefs”. Since 2018, the Swiss corporation, in cooperation with the renowned Economic Development Institute (WIFI) Tirol, has been offering the opportunity for cookery training on TUI Cruises ships. In April 2022, a training program for hotel and hospitality assistants was added. This offer is also accompanied by WIFI. A total of 26 prospects have started their careers on board the TUI Cruises ships since April.

As part of a two-year training course, practice and theory are completed on board. The practical part consists of four modules: restaurant, bar, housekeeping and other hotel services departments. The trainees learn theoretical content using four 20-hour online learning modules. They access the online platform of WIFI Tirol. The final point is the final exam at the Economic Development Institute of the Tyrolean Chamber of Commerce in Innsbruck. After successful completion, the graduates choose from numerous entry opportunities on board. In addition to the "classic" segments of restaurant, bar and housekeeping, the areas of shore excursion, guest service (reception & guest relation) and provision are available.
