Tourism and Travel Management students help out

with one comment

Our first year Tourism and Travel students had a chance to get out in field — well, actually, out on the dock —  the other day when they were asked to help welcome 6,000 passengers and 3,000 crew members arriving on three cruise ships pretty much all at once. Charlottetown’s been hosting cruise ship visits for quite some time, but for a city with a population of 32,000, having that many people arrive all at once was quite an event.

The students handled themselves well, directing traffic, giving information, and providing service in four different languages. It was a great opportunity for them to put some of their skills to the test.
