Cruise Shipping – state of art onboard training and lessons learned tools

We have secured multiple new licence contract wins for BMT REMBRANDT navigation simulator system, with cruise lines including Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn in North America and P&O Cruises Australia.

Key challenges

The cruise shipping industry is seeing a relentless drive towards larger ships and more diverse port visits.

The top priority for cruise lines is the safety and comfort of the guests who sail with them.

Critical to safe operations is the effective and regular training of bridge teams in new and familiar ports under challenging prevailing environmental conditions.

Additionally, with developments in digital forensics, the requirement to capture lessons learned from real-life incidents or training scenarios becomes essential.

Our solution

When one the world’s largest and most prestigious cruise lines needed a portable, state-of -art navigation simulator that met their exacting standards, they naturally turned to us. BMT REMBRANDT suite of simulators were selected to support both onboard training and shore-based operations.

Its high fidelity simulation platform allows incident reconstruction via VDR, AIS and replay.

In addition to ship-based installations, BMT REMBRANDT was also installed shore-side to allow offline navigation assessments and operational profiles of future new-buildings yet to be delivered. This is is uniquely capable navigation simulator system that delivers the highest standards of manoeuvring simulation.

Enhanced with high-fidelity 3D scene reconstruction from multiple views, the system can generate visual reconstructions and offers a “pause and take control” feature that opens new and exciting opportunities for state-of-the-art reflective training.

At Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn and P&O Cruises Australia, our number one priority is the safety and comfort of the guests who sail with us every year," stated Eric Chamberlin vice president of Marine for Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn and P&O Australia.

"For us, providing one of the world's leading solutions for maritime simulation and virtual training to support international operations is essential in helping us meet that priority. For that reason, we have formed an important partnership with BMT, one of the world's most respected leaders." 

Outcome

We have secured multiple new licence contract wins for BMT REMBRANDT navigation simulator system, with cruise lines including Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn in North America and P&O Cruises Australia.

A total of 39 cruise ships will now use our maritime simulator.
