The position of the master nowadays is extremely complex and demanding. The master is responsible for successful completion of the voyage and to make sure all the rules and regulations are strictly followed at all times. On the other hand, the master is an employee of the shipping company, therefore, he is expected to protect the interests of his employer. The interests of the shipping company are not always in accordance with the rules and regulations. There are occasions when these interests are in conflict with the required degree of safety, resulting in a negative impact on the master's decisions. Although the ultimate safety assessment and relevant action lies with the master, due to the ship owners' interference in the master's decisions the safety level in maritime transport nowadays has been significantly reduced. This paper explores the impact of shipping company on navigational and related duties performed by the master and deck officers.

Cruising tourism in the world, as well as in The Republic of Croatia, has significantly increased. The increase in cruising ship traffic has a beneficial effect on the economy of The Republic of Croatia, and therefore on social satisfaction too. However, the intensification of cruising vessel traffic also increases its negative impact on the environment: sea, land and air. While there are many researches in the world about the impact of cruising tourism on the environment, in Croatia, such researches are lacking. Therefore, the subject of the research in this paper has been to identify necessary actions, with the help of theoretical and practical guidelines, so cruising tourism in our coastal area could contribute to sustainable development.

This paper shows the application of information and communication technology, as well as the application of software support in tracking and monitoring of cargo container's and creating cargo plan. Because of the cheapest and easiest transport by ships there has been an increase of container usage. This leads to major problems in manipulating large number of containers in terminals. To increase efficiency and safety in manipulating containers, and to decrease error to its smallest rate, integration information systems are introduced in ports. To increase the efficiency and security of containers in the manipulation and to reduce possible errors to minimum, integrated information systems are introduced in ports, and the appropriate software packages such as Belco, CubeMaster, Cargo Optimizer, SeaGate are implemented. Today's information communication equipment allows monitoring and tracking of containers by the concept of "door to door". Implementing information systems decreases issues such as containers not being ready for loading. For successful work it is necessary to have overall coordination, timely, reliable, and accurate information between all participants in container manipulation.

Emotional intelligence (EI) is a new research subject in the field of psychological science. As a term and concept appears nineties. Salovey and Mayer defined EI as a set of skills that contribute to a better and more accurate estimate and express their emotions, assess others' emotions and use emotions in motivating the actions to reach our goals in life. Roberts, Zeidner and Matthews defines EI as a type of intelligence that involves the ability to process emotional information where emotions are organized mental response to current events involving psychological, experiential, and cognitive function. The changing relationship of a person or object to another, change and emotions toward the person or property, regardless whether these relationships are real, stored in memory or imagined. According to Mayer EI is the ability to recognize the meanings of emotions and their relationships, then using emotions as a basis for understanding and solving problems involving cognitive processes, which means that the use of emotions can be very useful for the improvement of cognitive activity. There are different conceptualizations of EI. One involving a range of adaptive characteristics associated with emotions, others emphasize cognitive elements, and the third conceptualize EI as ability and personality traits. Subtle analysis is required to determine what is and is not part of EI. EI concepts rely on one of two ways of looking at the relation between emotions and logical thinking in psychology. Something of great importance is that appreciation direct correlation between psychological factors and sporting success, has led to the psychological findings are treated as an inseparable part of the equation specification sports. In working with athletes and previously investigated psychological dimensions relevant to the success of the sport as well as those that are of importance for the development and operation of an integrated personality. EI athletes as well as the dynamics of micro-social environment, especially in team sports, been systematically studied to date in spite of the utmost importance to the success of any sports activity. The text of these reasons, it is primarily intended for psychologists and kinesiologists who work in the sport. Psychologists with the effort made to encourage the construction of good measuring instruments for measuring EI athletes and focus on the efficient use of sociogram method and kinesiologists to cooperate with psychologists in the most efficient way to take advantage of the results obtained.
