Nautical - Superheroes in the Making

June 17, 2024 | | Author: Lea Gehrig

What does it mean to be a superhero? It means to embody the spirit of courage and selflessness, rising above personal fears to protect and inspire others. It’s to don the armor of hope and wield the sword of justice, lighting up the darkness with acts of compassion. A superhero’s true power lies not in their strength, but in their unwavering dedication to uplift the weaker and stand firm in the face of any challenges.

Our Nautical already has superheroes as such. Some would disagree, knowing how different nautical departments are in onboard communities. However, there already are Sailors, strong and considerate, who are always there to help; Engineers, patient and knowledgeable, who we can depend on day or night; Captains who are the ultimate examples of manhood – honorable and kind, who show that with great power comes great responsibility. And when we start believing in better side of people – with a little bit of effort and support they just might be able to shift their focus towards who they might become opposed to who they currently are. And maybe then, with the increase of their personal responsibility, they will become our big brothers and sisters who we can always rely on and the superheroes we all need.

Nautical and Hotel are one. If Hotel in the soul of onboard community, Nautical is its body. Neither one exists without the other. Nautical provides power and stability. If there is no Nautical, the ship stops. If Nautical department disfunctions, there are inevitable issues with sailing, berthing, manpower, safety and security. Stable Nautic, on the other hand, insures smooth operation for the entire crew.

The job is tough, but they are tougher! Being part of Nautical is a real challenge: the job is very physical and demands your whole body to be in a very good shape; 24-hour schedules demand Nautical to be working both day and night; ever-changing weather conditions oblige Nautical to work in rain and snow, no matter the weather. The team is tight and needs to be well-functioning – you need to be able to adjust yourself to fit in and to be able to follow direct orders from your superiors. You need to be able to act smart and precise in unforeseen circumstances. And above all else, Nautical requires patience and kindness both towards colleagues and guests, no matter how tired and overwork one might be.

Rough job – great rewards. The upside to a very challenging job Nautical does is the stability of contracts we offer. The contracts are permanent, opposed to seasonal. The holidays are constant, so there are plenty of chances to see family and friends. The career growth is supported, as long as you are willing to make effort, work hard and invest your time. From a Sailor Trainee to a Sailor, to a Helmsman, then to the 2nd Captain and finally to the 1st Captain with your own ship and your own crew.
