|Re:||RMMM Ranks and Merchant Ship Command Structure – Updated (Admiralty Order 1612-06)|
This Admiralty Order updates and replaces AO 1312-05.
The following is a listing of Merchant Marine ranks that are available as of publication. Also reference AO 1612-05, Civilian Ranks – Updated. Passenger Liner specific roles, such as entertainment roles, for example Dance Instructor, would follow the Catering track with a Dance Assistant (C-2), Dance Instructor (C-3), Senior Dance Instructor (C-7), Chief Dance Instructor (C-8). This would be the same for other Passenger Liner specific roles.
