My husband and I met someone last summer who used to work for Princess on the train. She told me how much she loved it and that I should look into it. We went online and saw the Driver/Guide Position and knew that is what we would want to do. We applied and got hired.
We drove up to Fairbanks from Bend, OR in April for training. It is great to be somewhere with people who actually love their jobs. I had never thought about driving a commercial vehicle before but I love it. The trainers were friendly and helpful.
We have had an amazing summer living in a dry cabin and working for Princess and Holland America. We are within driving distance of Denali National Park, have gone on a flight tour above the Arctic Circle, and are planning a lot of hiking on the way home. We are definitely coming back next summer and can’t wait!!!
