Seafarers Happiness Index Q2 – New Report
Seafarers working on board cruise ships and ferries among unhappiest in industry, new report shows
The latest Seafarers Happiness Index report, published this week by The Mission to Seafarers, has revealed that seafarers working on board cruise ships and ferries rank among the unhappiest in the industry.
The report produced in association with the Club, is based on the responses of thousands of seafarers across the global maritime industry. Across all vessel types, four key issues emerged from the latest set of survey responses: delayed payment of wages; decreased shore leave; workload stress caused by smaller crews on board; and a lack of understanding from shore staff with regard to seafarer welfare issues.
On a positive note, seafarers’ happiness levels with their ability to keep in contact with their family when at sea rose this quarter.
