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.
