This video takes you behind the scenes at Royal Caribbean's center for crew safety training near Manila. Royal Caribbean hires more crew members from the Philippines than any other single country.
Crew members from the region go there for training either as new hires or when they need to renew their basic safety training. About 80% to 90% of all Filipinos crew members go through the facility. Up to 3,000-4,000 people per month can be trained there, which will be useful as Royal Caribbean expands from about 11,000 crew members up to about 30,000.
