One of the most demanding markets in the shipping industry currently is the cruise sector. There is a growing number of vessels ordered and the number of passengers increased by more than 23 percent between 2012 and 2017. 27.2 Million passengers are expected to cruise in 2018, which is again a growth of 5.5 percent.

BS Cruise Services was founded in 2017 after a strategic decision by the Group to expand the service offerings to the growing cruise market. An agile and dedicated team was formed consisting of professionals with long history within the cruise sector and spearheaded by industry veteran Les Royle. In March 2018 Bernhard Schulte Cruise Services took their first cruise vessel, the MS Albatros, under management with more vessels to follow.

The aim is to provide safety and quality at the highest standards consistent with the Schulte Group’s history. Transparent operations for the owner’s peace of mind, as well as reputation and innovation are the clear values of Bernhard Schulte Cruise Services. The range of tailor-made services which can be offered to the cruise market go far beyond technical management and crew management by making use of the Group’s range of core and value added services, such as newbuilding supervision and software solutions.
