For the past five summers, I have enjoyed being part of a dedicated team of people who work for Princess and Holland America in Anchorage, Alaska. My job title is “Outfitter.” This means I do several different things at work such as: meeting and greeting our guests, answering questions, doing check-in for boarding the Cruise Ships, directing guests to the train, directing guests to the motorcoaches, selling tours and much more. All of these duties are intended to assist and enhance the cruise and/or land tour experience of each guest. The most rewarding part of my job is getting to know the guests. I enjoy hearing about their expectations, experiences, and adventures pertaining to their cruise to Alaska.
Working only two days a week allows me to have a more relaxed, interesting and fun filled summer. Thanks to all my co-workers, supervisors, and managers it has been a pleasant an enjoyable experience.
