Maritime catering (Saloon Ratings) are responsible for good housekeeping and providing tasty and hygienic food for personnel on board. The Saloon ratings are employed for the upkeep and maintenance of the accommodation and living spaces including officer's cabins and officer's saloon. They attend to the officer's saloon and arrange to serve food, clean and issue to the officers/crew . The Chief cook is a part of the saloon department and is responsible for the storage preparation of wholesome food for all the ships officers/crew and upkeep of the galley (Kitchen).
A competent person can arise to the level of Catering Officer/Purser on board a Merchant Ship. Saloon Ratings are also in great demand in the cruise shipping industry.
As a Catering/Saloon rating you’ll perform a variety of jobs as well as being cook or cook/steward – such as forming part of emergency response teams involved in firefighting, security and passenger controller rescue duties.
