Meet Captain Carl Smith from Azamara Cruises

Captain Carl Smith

Born and bred on the Isle of Man, Captain Carl started his sea-going career more than 24 years ago with Shell Oil Tankers as a Deck Cadet. His apprenticeship lasted for three and a half years, consisted of four contracts at sea and two full years at South Tyneside College near Newcastle in England.

After completing his apprenticeship, Carl continued to work on a variety of cargo ships until he gained his Masters License several years later.

When he moved to passenger vessels in 1999, Carl started at the bottom of the ranks again but slowly worked his way up.

He joined Azamara Club Cruises in the summer of 2007 and enjoys interacting with the guests and working with a dedicated team onboard. Carl now lives in the Czech Republic with his wife and son in their purpose-built home. During his time away from the sea, Carl enjoys sports and has completed a number of Triathlons over the past few years.
