Today I’m spotlighting another awesome crewmember – Augustus – who’s been part of the Royal fam for 18 whole years !
Way back when, Augustus started his journey with us on Splendor of the Seas – where he worked onboard for a full 13 years !
Since then, he’s called Anthem of the Seas and Mariner of the Seas home for two years each. Today, he’s on his first ever contract on Explorer of the Seas as Head Galley Utility.
Augustus joined us from South Rivers, St. Vincent and says that working with Royal makes him happy and that he gets a great feeling of satisfaction knowing that he could provide security and support for his four children.
He fondly remembers the very first day he stepped on board Splendor of the Seas in Galveston, Texas where he looked at the ship and simply thought “WOW.”
Ever since, he says Royal Caribbean has made his life and time onboard an enjoyable and memorable experience – adding that he’s thankful to be able to have such trust with the company and likes that he’s had varied work experience. As you can all imagine, I am beyond happy to hear this !
When onboard, Augustus is most well-known for his huge smile and indomitable work ethic. That and the fact that he greets everyone with a loud “YOW WHATZ UP ” or ” YOW BIG MAN!” that’s sure to crack even the toughest of crowds !
Augustus, I think I can speak on behalf of everyone that it is a pleasure to have you onboard. Thank you !
