Third Officer Niño Boniel The idea to travel and see different countries for free and with pay is what inspired me to get into this industry. V.Ships changed me positively a lot, especially the training and how to work as a team to meet a common goal. The most difficult and challenging part of the job is that we keep continually learning and studying and most especially we are away from home. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we arrive in the port safely after we have encountered bad weather and rough seas in the ocean. The best advice I ever received was when my Filipino captain advised me to be an efficient and responsible Officer. I would recommend this job, especially to young people who would like to travel in the foreign countries.
