I started working for Princess in May of 1998. I was a newly retired elementary school teacher. I knew Princess was a very organized business because my husband and I several years prior to retirement took a Caribbean cruise with them. I remember how everything was all prepared for us. We were met in a courteous, friendly manner at the airport for our transfer to the ship. We were explained what was going to happen once we got to the ship. The services was impeccable prior to the ship, onboard the ship, as well as disembarkation at the end, and our transfer to the airport. We had such a wonderful and memorable trip with Princess from beginning to end.
One of my last few days teaching at school in 1998; I went to my mailbox to get my mail and found a beautiful post card with a very large cruise ship on the front of it. I flipped it over with a message congratulating me on my retirement and would I consider joining the Princess team. Having already taken our Princess cruise several years prior I never forgot what a wonderful time we had. After reading my post card I was reminded again how organized Princess was and thought how wonderful it would be to work for them and share my excitement about Alaska with new visitors.
Here I am eleven seasons later still enjoying my time with this company. I am a summer outfitter (passenger service representative) working at one of our local hotels. I have an opportunity to continue the top notch customer service I received by meeting and greeting our guests arriving on motor coaches from one of our cruises or arriving from the airport. I have lots of fun with the team that I work with as well as assisting our guests with ideas of what to do for fun in Anchorage and helping them book one of the wonderful tours we offer. Now I get to hear from our guests on a regular basis how friendly the people are and how wonderful Princess is in being so organized helping them every step of the way.
