Despite the economic downturn of 2020 and the resulting layup of a number of ships, the demand for credentialed mariners, especially those holding an AB endorsement, is expected to continue into 2021. There is a significant demand for AB's, while demand for OS's and other positions is expected to pick up in the early summer months and continue throughout the remainder of the season.
