Seafarers have the option to choose between tanker and container ships based on their personal preferences, experience, and availability of required certifications.
Tanker ships offer higher remuneration compared to container ships, but longer sailing times and higher health hazards.
Container ships offer more frequent port visits, allowing for more opportunities to explore different countries and cultures.
Dry ships are considered less risky than tankers due to the hazardous cargo carried by the latter.
Tanker ships require more safety precautions and have higher safety standards than dry ships.
Dry ships have faster promotion opportunities, while promotions on tanker ships are slower.
Seafarers on tanker ships have fewer cargo operations and less maneuvering compared to those on dry ships.
Ultimately, the choice between tanker and container ships depends on the individual seafarer's priorities, preferences, and career goals.
