Princess Cruises

Crown Princess® – May 2011:

Jason Matthew O'Shea, Deck Petty Officer

My name is Jason Matthew O'Shea and I am from Cape Town, South Africa. I would like to thank everyone who voted for me--and a special thank you to the Accommodation department for their nomination.

As a fourth-generation seafarer I have worked for close on 18 years at sea, seven of which have been here with Princess Cruises. I am extremely thankful for the chance to work in such a world-class company, which has provided me with so much. I am proud to be part of the Princess family.

I am extremely proud of the work ethic instilled by my dad during my career thus far. I will continue to work and apply myself to make him proud and, one day, get my qualification as a Deck Officer to follow in my family's footsteps. Being nominated for and winning the Employee of the Month award, now two contracts back to back, goes to show that hard work and dedication does not go unrecognized by our colleagues and peers. My advice to all is, "Believe in the C.R.U.I.S.E. program." It's the way to go!
