During the year of 2000 I was working in Bend, Oregon. Hanging out at the local coffee shop, conversing will local friends was one of my pastimes and one day it was mentioned that one of them worked in Alaska for a summer on the Princess train. This really perked my interest as I had always dreamed of some day venturing up to Alaska to explore what it had to offer. My friend had said to watch the papers and look for a Princess Tours ad. When the ad came out I gathered up two friends and headed to Portland for an interview. Shortly thereafter, I was hired as an onboard cook, and so began my Princess Alaska adventure!
The experience was everything that I had imagined, meeting lots of new people and watching Alaska go by from the train windows were a great plus. This was all I needed to fall in love with Princess in Alaska and found myself staying for the winter…which has turned into six years! Princess has been a great company to work for and provides many opportunities for many people. Princess has definitely made my decade!
