Cruise 2023 - We have crossed the international date line and are now one day ahead. From oil leaks to self-care spa nights, there is never a dull moment while aboard the TSGB.

Engineering cadets had the opportunity to repair an oil leak in the engine room today. We like to joke that the TSGB is the perfect training ship and learning environment because there is always something to fix.

After the events of the day concluded, and following Port Briefs (presentations that are given prior to arrival at a port - we provide information for things to see and do, etiquette tips, safety tips, etc.) cadets were able to relax and unwind with a fun self-care spa night! Many nails were painted and many face masks were applied. Spa night had a great turnout and we are looking forward to holding this fun event again.


Face masks!
