Crossworld Launches New Holiday Season Incentive Program

Crossworld Marine Services, Inc. is encouraging more seafarers to hop back in vessels and re-join their fleet in the coming weeks through its new incentive program.

Crossworld’s ‘Holiday Season Special Benefits’ was launched on October 26 and will be maintained until the end of the year (December 31, 2020). Through this program seafarers who will re-join their vessels will be entitled to additional bonuses and perks.

Among them are:

  • Free 3-month COVID-19 Life insurance worth P 200,000
  • Pre-approved loan of P 30,000 payable in 6 months with 0% interest
  • An option between a free health insurance coverage (HMO) for 1 year extended to 2 dependents OR Additional $ 100 allowance for the seafarer’s wife for 3 months.


The incentive program aims to boost the deployment number of Filipino seafarers during the final months of the year as some are opting to return home to enjoy the Christmas season. It’s Crossworld’s solution to the downtrend experienced in previous years and to provide continuous quality service to its principals.

As of the moment, overall deployment numbers of Filipino seafarers are on the rise despite the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Philippine Labor Department says around 46,000 sea-based migrant workers were deployed in September alone. The number was higher than October’s numbers which was at 41,000 seafarers.

‘Our deployment is livening up, not just for cargo ships and oil tankers -- to a certain extent, even for the cruise line,’ said Labor Undersecretary Joji Aragon.

Crossworld is hoping to help in keeping the numbers up for the rest of the year with the launch of its ‘Holiday Season Special Benefits’. The company is set to evaluate the effectivity of the incentive program after the end of the year.
