Shipping Podcast: Kate McCue, the first American woman in command of a “mega” cruise ship
Meet Captain Kate McCue, currently Captain of the CELEBRITY EQUINOX and a role model for many young people in the world.
Captain Kate was the first American woman in command of a “mega” cruise ship, which happened in 2015. Listen to her story about how she applied to work in the bar onboard when she first tried out to be a seafarer as she didn’t get hired otherwise. Ninteen years later she is the Captain of the ship and today she is in command of 1,200+ people onboard her cruise ship.
Kate also talks about Bug, the cat she brings to work around the world. The cat @bugnaked has almost 24,000 followers on Instagram and it’s a must to follow her as well.
