After completing his medical studies in South Africa and working in England, Mandrid Blignaut joined P&O Princess Cruises in 1992. Since then he has worked as senior doctor on their impressive and well-equipped fleet of cruise liners for more than twelve years. His work on board ship took him to the Far East, visiting places like Vietnam, China and Japan, and down to Australia and the South Pacific Islands. Apart from the Mediterranean and Baltic Sea, he has travelled to Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and around North and South America, including the Caribbean. Mandrid has acquired extensive experience in maritime and travel medicine, and has recently decided to use his experience to concentrate on full-time recruitment of doctors for the cruise line industry.
