Leonardo Dumaguing, Senior Electrical Fitter
I am Leonardo Dumaguing. Currently I work on board as a Senior Electrical Fitter. I came from the vegetable capital of the Philippines, Baguio City.
I started working with Princess Cruises back in 2001 as a Galley Cleaner for four months and then I moved to the Technical department as Audio Visual Operator (AVOP). From my humble start I have managed to serve on various classes of ships within the fleet throughout my 10-year career with the company.
I have always admired the people with whom I have worked for their dedication. This is one of the many reasons why I have stayed with the company and have never lost confidence in bringing out the best that I can for the job. I strive to always give 100% of my knowledge in the performance of the responsibilities required by my rank. Based on the knowledge I gained from working with Princess Cruises, I have been recently promoted to Sr. Electrical Fitter.
The C.R.U.I.S.E. program really gives me the valuable encouragement and dedication I need in the performance of my job. Through this program, the company enhances our focus on passenger service as well as our internal customers' satisfaction.
I would like to express my sincerest thanks and gratitude to my colleagues who nominated me for this prestigious award and to the C.R.U.I.S.E. Committee for selecting me as Employee of the Month. This award definitely fills me with great joy and motivates me to grow further--especially with the Technical department to which I belong. It has also increased my commitment and dedication towards the company.
