Cruise Director

Stephen Cloete

A warm-hearted powerhouse of science and artistry, Stephen took the unusual step of studying Computer Science and Drama at university and has been every bit as creative in his career choices every since. Having studied Hotel Management with the Protea Hotel Group in his native South Africa, he worked as the General Manager of the Granny Mouse Country Hotel and then of the five-star Fairlawns Hotel. A complete change of direction followed, which took Stephen to perform as a professional artist across South Africa and internationally before inspiring him to join the cruise industry and MSC, where he is one of our longest serving and most gifted Cruise Directors.
