MSC Cruises is a people-focused company, employing tens of thousands of people across the world. 
Nearly 80% work on board our ships.

Employee Training and Development

Most initial training of onboard employees occurs at our dedicated crew training facilities around the world allowing training in simulated settings with the same equipment as found on our ships.

Our employees also use our extensive library of eLearning materials which include e-books, audio learning and recorded classroom sessions.  
With complex technical equipment onboard, deck and engine teams go through comprehensive technical training and certification, in accordance with all applicable national and international rules and regulations and in compliance with the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW).
Whether they work on the Bridge, the engine room, in hospitality, or in a supporting role onshore, all our people receive the training they require to allow them to do an exceptional job.
