Curious to know places I can expect to travel and see, and if I’d have chance to explore where ever I may travel. And what can I expect to do as a chef, such as downtime, hours worked and personal training?
My principle interest was to travel the world as a Stoker. I wasn't disappointed on that respect & whilst others were perceived as being paid more for doing less, I found the way to increase income was to excel at my job.If Keeboo's principal interest is seeing the world as a Chef, then he should consider Cruise Ships. They really do travel the world and the pay is excellent.
There is one proviso however. Keeboo will need to be an exceptional chef.
More Lobster Thermidor than Herrings-In or Yellow Peril.
I couldn't agree more.Being a Chef in the Royal Navy is hard work, but I'd never suggest a chef would get paid more for doing less in the merchant navy.
Anyone that wants to be a professional chef from scratch, paid a wage whilst learning and seeks world travel will probably find the Royal Navy offers more than most.
