Our Seafarers

Our skilled seagoing personnel are recruited from the Philippines, Spain and Cuba. Biannual crew seminars in Spain and the Philippines are used to communicate specific topics and facilitate dialogue and discussions.

The cadets are our future managers and the reason why we strive to build a strong culture and good working practices amongst them. 

Recognizing that a healthy, well-balanced mental environment is crucial, Lauritzen Kosan continuously aims at creating a good recreational environment on board. An important part of welfare and well-being is being able to stay in contact with family and friends and is the reason why all crew are allowed to use phone cards and internet connections freely.
