First Days at Princess

I’m halfway through my first training week at Princess Cruises, and so far it’s really interesting. It has been 12 years since I’ve started with a new company and that’s a different experience. It’s also been since 1990 that I’ve worked with a mainframe system like Princess uses for its reservations booking so that’s different. I have scored 100% on all my quizzes so far, and I’m proud of that. There’s a lot to learn, but it’s not rocket science and I think I’m getting the hang of things pretty well. Of course, the real proof is when I get upstairs and have to answer real reservation phone calls!

The best thing in the world is being able to walk across the street to work. It sure has given me a whole new perspective on my overall quality of life—it’s so much more relaxing and comforting when you don’t have to spend hours and hours out of everyday fighting traffic getting from home to work to home again. I get to come home and eat lunch—which is much more economical—and relax and refocus. I’m pretty happy with the way things are working out.

I’m also happy to know that I can get my friends and family on cruises for 50-60% off too! But I want to go on one now…
