Are you interested in working on cruise ships?

I created the site to offer colleagues some information on the figure of the ship’s doctor.

Not only that, but you can also find links to manuals that are essential for work on board.

On the official websites of the cruise companies, you will find links to careers on board. Alternatively, there are authorised recruitment agencies.

I inform you that the SeaCare and SeaEvent programs, produced by Tritan Software, are used in the Medical Centers of most Cruise Companies.

SeaCare can manage every aspect of medical operations while connecting and collaborating with information across their entire fleet of ships, guests, crew members and medical providers.

SeaEvent is an end-to-end enterprise software platform that allows your organization to effectively report, trend and analyze incidents across global fleet operations for health, environment, safety, quality, security and technology.
