Sapphire Princess® – Oct. 2011:

Augustin Donn Pastorfide, Central Hotel Storekeeper

My name is Donn Pastorfide and I work as the Central Hotel Storekeeper onboard Sapphire Princess. I have been working for Princess for 11 years and this is my 11th contract. I am from Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, in the country of Philippines.

I am responsible for the day-to-day Hotel Stores operations under the direct supervision of the Hotel Inventory Manager and F&B Director. As a team, we aim at achieving the efficient and economical management of hotel supplies, while at the same time providing the best possible service to internal customers, while maintaining the quality standards of delivered products, all in the true spirit of C.R.U.I.S.E.

I am grateful for being elected as Employee of the Month and I was delighted when I found out about it. For my efforts to be recognized in such a grandiose way is more than just a pat in the back, it is a further push towards excellence. It is a great honor and very self-satisfying. I do believe, however, that each and every crewmember deserves this recognition in their own way.

This month I will continue to do what is expected from all Princess Cruises employees, which is to practice C.R.U.I.S.E. and uphold our Core Values as the Consummate Host. Again, thank you all for this great honor and achievement.
