Meet Captain Kate McCue, currently Captain of the CELEBRITY EQUINOX and a role model for many young people in the world.
Captain Kate was the first American woman in command of a “mega” cruise ship, which happened in 2015 but listen to her story about how she applied to work in the bar onboard when she first tried out to be a seafarer as she didn’t get hired otherwise. 19 years later she is the Captain of the ship and today she is in command of 1,200+ people onboard her cruise ship.
Of course, we speak about Bug, the pet Captain Kate brings to work and also on her trips around the world. bugnaked has almost 24,000 followers on Instagram and it’s a must to follow her as well.
It was such a pleasure to meet Captain Kate and hear her view of a career at sea, I hope you enjoyed it, thank you for listening. Both Captain Kate and I love feedback, so please give us a shout-out in social media unless you have a question or two.
