Princess Cruises

Grand Princess® – May 2011:

Karin Van Oudheusden, Senior Assistant Purser

Hello, my name is Karin van Oudheusden and I'm from the Netherlands. Prior to working for Princess I spent several years in Costa Rica where I worked at the Hilton Resort in Puntarenas. Now, I spend my time between both countries when not working on board one of Princess's vessels.

I'm very proud to have been chosen as Employee of the Month and would like to thank the C.R.U.I.S.E. Committee for their consideration and support. Grand Princess has spent several weeks in dry dock in the Bahamas and this has been a challenging time for me as Pratica. I would not have been able to do this job without the help of two very hardworking colleagues: Cathy Sandu, SAP PR, and Roberta Gondim Rezende, JAP-Assistant Pratica. Thanks, girls!
