Agung Riyadi, 2nd Bosun
My name is Agung Riyadi from the island of Bawean, Indonesia, currently residing in Jakarta, Indonesia with my loving wife, two sons, and a daughter. I started my career with Princess Cruises back in April 1991 onboard my favorite ship, the old Star Princess. I worked as Deck AB then rose to rank of 2nd Bosun, which I'm now performing onboard the beautiful Island Princess. I've been a sailor for more than 20 years and most of those years I've sailed onboard Princess Cruises vessels.
Having been nominated for the Employee of the Month by my colleagues is already a reward for me but to be chosen as an Employee of the Month gives me much more than a reward, it gives me an honor that I will cherish in for life. For sure this award will give me more inspiration and encouragement to give the best service at sea as 2nd Bosun for passengers and my fellow crewmembers.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my colleagues and the C.R.U.I.S.E. Committee for choosing me as an Employee of the Month for August 2011. I feel very proud and happy to be selected.
