As we’ve already mentioned, Phillip has always dreamed of navigating the ship, and he did everything to realize his dream. Phillip started to study nautical science in 2010 and gained his diploma in 2016. Since then, he has worked for TUI Cruises.
Officer Phil truly loves his work. It gives him a chance to travel a lot, to discover new destinations, and meet new people.
"My regular working days are two shifts of 4 hours each on the bridge for the safe navigation," Phillip told CruiseBe. Besides, he does safety checks and training on board.
It's interesting to know that Phillip's favorite place on the ship is the bridge. "The view is amazing, and it gives me freedom," the Officer said.

Phillip likes to explore the beautiful places where he goes. However, he also likes "to stay on board, go to the gym or just to relay a little bit with fellows and friends when the ship is in the port."
As for his favorite destinations, Officer Phil loves "the exotic small ports with beautiful nature and landscape where you don't go too often." Besides, he wants to visit Alaska one day.

Officer Phil has never sailed on the cruise ship as a traveler. However, he intends "to experience the other side as well." According to Phillip, a cruise vacation is "the chance to explore many different places with always new adventures. On the other hand, you can just relax and enjoy wellness or silence on board."
