Disney Cruise Line Welcomes LJM Maritime Academy Cadets Aboard Disney Dream


LJM Maritime Academy Cadets Christina Adderley, from Eleuthera, and Emily Bain, from New Providence, met with Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro along with other Disney Cruise Line executives aboard the Disney Dream on Monday. Adderley and Bain recently joined the vessel as part of the Disney Cruise Line maritime scholarship program, which included two years of study at LJM Maritime Academy in Nassau and one year of service aboard a Disney ship.

Adderley and Bain will spend approximately 12 months onboard various Disney Cruise Line vessels, gaining onboard experience and working toward their maritime certifications. The Disney scholarship program, announced in 2019 in partnership with LJM Maritime Academy, is part of a larger collection of initiatives Disney Cruise Line has implemented to inspire future maritime professionals and support communities across The Bahamas.
