Direct experience of being on board a cruise ship is a regular feature of SMA activities. The Maritime Experiential Learning (MEL) Camps, a collaborative effort with Star Cruises since 2004, provides a floating campus for her students. Each year at least 200 students from SMA as well as selected few from its local and foreign partners participate in these MEL Camps conducted 2-3 times a year. During the cruise trip, students get to experience living aboard and explore the day-to-day operations of a large well-run cruise ship.
