Cruise Interpreter Academy

The Cruise Interpreter Academy offers specialized training from embarkation to disembarkation. Before the Academy, there were no industry standards outside the Code of Professional Conduct to guide interpreters serving the Deaf Community during their cruise vacations.

 In the Academy, participants undergo intensive and practical training to learn cruise line policy, procedures, and elite customer service etiquette skills to all stakeholders.  The training includes participants applying what they've learned via role-playing from Deaf guests onboard the cruise ship invited to participate on Leadership training day.
