If you are not European, you can use ONLY GATE 1 to exit and enter in the port.   If you use individual transport, look for authorized taxi cars only and pay attention to the fare.   If you are out in town, it is preferable not to be alone.   Pay attention! There are some crooks who pretend to be from Seamen's Club. They will ask you for money in various forms and then disappear. Ignore them or call the police. Seamen's Club representatives will never ask you for money.   Do not exchange money except at authorized exchange centers!   If you have arrived in Constanța and, together with your colleagues, would like to go out to the city, call us at +40 723 000-555. We are waiting for you!   Do not buy alcoholic beverages to bring them into the harbor.  

About Us

What are Seafarers?

A seafarer is defined as anyone who works onboard a seagoing ship.

Collectively, there are over 1.5 million seafarers across the world made up of various nationalities. These are men and women often spend up to 9 months at a time far away from their family, friends and loved ones. This can often lead to loneliness and mental health issues, with limited access to internet onboard ships.

Seafarers are responsible for transporting over 90% of the world’s goods and fuels, making them essential key workers who often go unrecognised by the general population.

Issues Faced by Seafarers

In addition to loneliness and mental health issues, many seafarers often endure money worries with the average Filipino seafarer sometimes supporting up to 15 extended family members at any one time on their wage alone.

Seafaring remains one of the world’s most dangerous occupations, with piracy, shipwrecks and abandonment all adding to the problems that seafarers face in their line of work.

A lack of facilities available to seafarers often exacerbates these issues. In addition limited access to external communications on board, there are also a limited number of ships with exercise facilities on board, although this is improving as new ships are built. In port, seafarers rely on Seafarers' Centers representatives to transport them to the nearest Seafarers Centre or local leisure facilities.

Our Mission to Seafarers

Our Seamen's Centers is here to support the men and women working at sea when they need us most.

To compensate for the lack of facilities available, our Seafarers Centers aim to provide Seafarers with:

• Access to WiFi Internet and SIM cards.

• A comfortable place to rest and relax.

• The chance to get food and toiletries.

• Transport to shops and local amenities.

Our mission is to care for the shipping industry’s most important asset: its people.
