Coral Princess® – May 2011:

Stefan Cramba, 1st Cook

My name is Stefan Sorin Cramba and I hail from the beautiful city of Ploesti, Romania. I started as a culinary apprentice at the Virgil Madgearu Culinary School and graduated to work in the Central Palace and the Prahova Plaza Hotels in Romania.

I joined Princess Cruises in 2005 as an Assistant Cook Trainee on Star Princess, having listened to my friends' experiences of life at sea. Over the years I have had the privilege to work on Dawn Princess, Emerald Princess, and Sea Princess, progressing through different galley levels to my current role of 1st Cook on board Coral Princess.

I am honored to have been nominated and selected as the Employee of the Month. It was a welcome surprise and one that I am very proud to have received. I would like to thank each and every person who has supported me along the way, especially my team and the C.R.U.I.S.E. Committee for their encouragement. On vacation I enjoy the outdoor life and spending time with close family and friends.
