Mahesh Kathalapoor Deck Cadet

He may have been nervous before starting his new career path, but Mahesh Kathalapoor now knows he made the right choice.

The 34-year-old Indian recently joined V.Group as a Deck Steward, in what is his first time on-board a vessel.

However, he's delighted to have made the leap into the shipping industry and is relishing the new challenge.

He said: "I have been very well looked after since I joined the company, and I've also had a great time since I've been onboard.

"I've made new friends, learning a new job and been able to travel to places I never thought I would get to see.

"I love working on-board the passenger ship, talking to guests and I've met some very nice and interesting people during my time so far."
