Princess Cruises

Diamond Princess® – July 2011:

Rahul Shirodker, 2nd Cook

I am from Goa, one of the most beautiful places in India. I did my Hotel Management studies before pursuing my career at sea. I joined Princess Cruises in 2006 with ships including Sapphire, Sun, and Diamond Princess.

I would like to thank the Executive Chef, Food & Beverage Director, and Maître D' for all the support they have given me to showcase my talent. It's a great feeling and an honor to receive this award.

This award will increase my confidence in working with more positive energy and will motivate me to do my best.

Thank you all.


Avil Menezes, 3rd Cook

I come from the south of India in Mangalore. It was a great surprise and I was astonished to be chosen as the Employee of the Month. This is my second contract with Princess Cruises and I am loving every bit of it.

I would like to send a very big thank you to the entire management of Diamond Princess and all my fellow crewmembers for motivating me throughout my time at sea.

This recognition is a huge responsibility and at the same time a pleasant surprise that will motivate me in the future.

I will do my best to be effective and diligent in my work at all times and wear my smile every day.

Thank you all.
