Plymouth University recently held an open day to promote their cruise management degree aboard the P&O cruise ship Azura.
Weymouth College Travel and Tourism students were delighted to be invited – together with students from just a few colleges in the UK – to attend the event aboard P&O Azura, moored in Southampton Docks.
The students were given a tour of the 5 star luxury ship and took the opportunity to enjoy a delicious lunch in one of P&O Azura’s fabulous restaurants.
The students also visited Carnival House – P&Os UK Head Office in Southampton – where they had the opportunity to talk to staff and current students (including former Weymouth College student Ben Payne) about the cruise management course and how they could look at moving forward towards their future career goals.
It was a unique day and gave all the students a first-hand, real-life insight into working life aboard a cruise ship.
