Princess Cruises

Grand Princess®:

Maria Harmadi, Assistant F&B Manager

My name is Maria Harmadi and I am from Hungary. I have been working for Princess Cruises for over 11 years, since I graduated from college. I started as Buffet Stewardess in November 2000 onboard Dawn Princess, and by putting in effort and hard work over the years I have progressed my way through the ranks and currently I am the Assistant Food & Beverage Manager on Grand Princess.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has given me the chances and support in the past years to get me to where I am today. I extend my sincere gratitude to the management team onboard Grand Princess for their continuous support and assistance. It has been a privilege to work with such amazing people on a daily basis and throughout my career. I enjoy being a part of such a great family of fellow crewmembers, who continue to rise above and beyond the call of duty. I take great pride in my position and encourage others to do the same.

Winning the award for the Employee of the Month is meaningful and humbling to me. I am very proud to receive the honor for my actions that resulted in a wonderful outcome--to be selected amongst so many deserving winners. Let me confess that it was a huge and extremely pleasant surprise. I would like to thank the C.R.U.I.S.E. Committee for their consideration and recognition.
