TopCrew DownUnder and Vital Hospitality for the last 4 years have run Super Yacht Stewardess training courses that are held throughout the year to teach candidates some of the essential skills required to work as a steward/ess on a super yacht.

Many people have hospitality experience, but have no understanding of silver service, how to fold napkins or whether to serve from the left or the right. This course is a great opportunity to get exposure to a number of different aspects of 5 star service in a concise and interactive way.

Overview of Topics covered:
• Silver Service
• Setting up tables/clearing tables
• Napkin folds
• Food and beverage service i.e. carrying three plates and trays of drinks
• Cocktail parties
• Grooming Standards
• Interaction with Guests

We also now offer a one day housekeeping course which covers the following:

• Learn the skills of detailing, general cleaning & maintenance of cabins, bathrooms & other areas on board.
• Understand cleaning standards and supplies.
• Understand laundry procedures such as washing and ironing guest/crew laundry.
• Understanding the care of different fabrics and tips on stain removal.

Course Dates: TBC

Location: Auckland

We offer this course as a one on one option, we are flexible with dates and timings to suit individual needs.

Who should attend:
