Princess Cruises

Sapphire Princess® – Aug. 2011:

Volodymyr Nazarenko, Buffet Steward

My name is Volodymyr Nazarenko and I work as a Buffet Steward onboard Sapphire Princess. I have been working for Princess Cruises for three years and this is my fifth contract. I am from a large town called Nikolaev in Ukraine.

I am very excited to be voted Employee of the Month for a second time, and I was really surprised when I found out. This means for me that I am doing the right thing to satisfy the passengers' needs and I am very happy and really honored for people to see that I am doing something beyond just regular service, because I believe this behavior follows my moral understandings.

I am working in the Restaurant department and my primary goal is to provide excellence in quality of service, and I am very happy to see the smiles on the faces of passengers after my service, because they are all guests and we are the consummate host. This month I will continue to do my best as usual and will also try to do something more to show others that they can also go for the extra mile, too.

Thank you for everything and believing in me, I will never disappoint you all.
