I can't be happier to randomly find Nikky's contact and start using Cruise Academy's services. Since I had no previous experience with working at sea, Nikky and her team in the most polite and detailed way, explained all to me and guided me on my way to my first ship. My questions were answered right away, sometimes even before I asked them! It is a pleasure to recommend Cruise Academy to help you achieve your goals and make your dream come true! Thank you again!Despina Poposka: Macedonia

I just knew about Cruise Academy Ltd. 8 months ago by recommendation. I sent my CV and Cover Letter through its official web page applying for my desired position on board a cruise ship, and the reply was almost immediate. Today, I have a sign-on date to work on board as Marine Engineer in the world´s largest cruise line. I truly thank Cruise Academy Ltd. for opening this window to me and assisting me with every step of the recruiting process. I met its MD, Nikky Ingley, in Lisbon for a didactic test required by the Cruise Line, and I must say she is one of the kindest people I have ever met, in addition to being professional and sedulous.Luis Angel Gomes Guardia: Venezuela

Can't recommend Cruise Academy highly enough. Their wealth of knowledge and expertise in this industry is impressive. Nikki in particular was a pleasure to deal with. Her enthusiasm is infectious. Best thing I've ever done!Andrea Harding: Australia
From my very first interaction with Cruise Academy, I was astounded by the knowledge and insight I was given. I went from wondering if I could even apply to now working on board one of the Carnival ships. Nikky was on hand to answer all of my (sometimes ridiculous) questions and helped me through the entire process. From start to finish I received the most professional service and felt safe in the hands of Cruise Academy. For anyone wondering if they should take the leap, just go for it! I am having an amazing time. Thank you, Cruise Academy.Victoria Lord: United Kingdom
