Princess Cruises

Diamond Princess® – Aug. 2011:

Ashley Peter Fernandes, Bar Steward

My name is Ashley Fernandes and I am from Mumbai (India). I was very excited when I started to work for Princess Cruises because it was and is one the best cruise lines in the world.

I joined Princess in 2004 as a dishwasher, I have now been 7 years with Princess and during this time, I have worked on Caribbean, Sun, Tahitian and Diamond Princess. I have been able to progress in my career and am now a proud Bar Steward. I would like to see myself further grow in this company as I strongly believe in myself and know that I have all the qualities to succeed in life. I love working for Princess because it has provided me the means to look after my family and lead a good life.

I would like to thank in particular the Boutiques Department for nominating me and all my colleagues and supervisors for the support they have given me to show my talent. It's a great feeling and quite an honor to receive this award. This award will increase my confidence in working with more positive energy and will motivate me even more to do my best.

Thank you all.
