I am not familiar with this company but I have moved this thread to our Crewmembers section where more people may know about this company.

Take care,
Mike

We have received warnings here about Nippon Shipping...

When I studied their practices I came to the conclusion their methods are not usual for the cruise industry, and personally I would not trust them or send them any money to try to get you a job on a cruise ship.

Their email addresses do not look genuine to me. These include:

nipponshippingline@email.com ans visiontravels.england@consultant.com.

"email.com" and "consultant.com" are well known fake email domains.

In addition:

1. No shipping company is going to pay you 4 weeks vacation time. The cruise lines do not give vacation pay.

2. Two years is entirely too long for a contract - most cruise lines go 10-11 months per contract maximum.
