HKCYIA Offers Cruise Talks to the Public FREE

January 18, 2018 Association No Comments Email Email

To promote public awareness of the cruise industry and its contributions to the economy, the Hong Kong Cruise & Yacht Industry Association (HKCYIA) is to provide free talks on cruise careers for youths. This follows the talks for Tourism and Hospitality Studies students which received overwhelming response with over 70 secondary schools having enrolled for the talks since last October.

The cruise talks for the public will be held from now till March. The 3-hour talks will be conducted in English and given by HKCYIA Purser Trainer Laura Escobar, who has over 10 years of experience in the management of European cruises. The talks will cover international cruise information, structure of international cruises, introduction to cruise travel, and career development in cruise industry, providing the public with information about cruise careers and industry developments.

Kara Yeung, Executive Director of HKCYIA, said “In view of the relatively low awareness of the cruise industry among Hong Kong people, HKCYIA is dedicated to advancing the long-term development of the Hong Kong cruise industry through free talks to the general public. The talks are designed to enable them to acquire a broad knowledge and understanding of the global cruise industry, thereby promoting employment in the fast-growing cruise sector.”

The free talks will be held at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal where most international cruises berth in Hong Kong. Participants can have the opportunity to watch international cruises visiting Hong Kong, including Costa neoRomantica of the Italian Costa Cruises, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary 2 of the British Cunard Line. They can also visit the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal and the HKCYIA office. Those wanting to visit the cruises are required to make prior arrangements with travel agencies on their own. For those interested in attending the free talks, please contact Ms. Chan at (852) 2180 0723 for registration as seats will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
