Many merchant marine jobs require you to travel internationally.

Most cargo ships, military cargo ships, research vessels and cruise ships would require you to travel internationally.
Most ferries, offshore supply and tug jobs would have you working domestically .

This is not hard and fast, set in stone rule. I have worked on cargo ships that only serviced US ports. I have friends who have worked on tugs all over the world.

Christine recommends the following next steps:

  • Check out the different US Maritime Colleges
  • Check out maritime apprenticeship programs

Merchant marines operate and service private U.S. passenger and cargo vessels, including ferries and deep sea vessels. Merchant seamen work on each of those vessels to make sure the boats are well maintained, the people onboard are taken care of and the cargo or passengers get to their final destination. They may also provided needed emergency services, sightseeing transportation and help transport troops in wartime. Merchant marines work full-time, part-time or seasonally as needed.
