hi all, I'm 19 and wondering if there is alot of people my age doing cadetships? I work with a lot of people of various different ages as I'm an apprentice engineer, however I miss out on alot of fun my mates have with uni, etc... It'd be great to be experience the job/ training with people a similar age to me. If im to be living where I'm training then I'm gonna need mates for piss ups, sports etc.....of course no disrespect to people of contrasting ages, some of the older lads at work are good mates! Also what opportunities are there for free time whilst away? Whilst Id take my job seriously, one of the reasons I'm applying is to see the world and experience new things. Is there opportunity see the sights, explore, etc..... What about on ship? What recreational facilities are there? What do people think of banter and atmosphere on ship? Any opinions are welcomed . Cheers.
