Default My grandson is going to work for NCL

He went to a job fair last week that NCL had in Tampa and they notified him today that he has been accepted for a position as an Assistant Cook on the Pride of America. It will be a couple of months before he goes because of the special paperwork that hs to be completed.

This is a great chance for a young man of 19. The whole family is so excited for him.

How marvelous Nancy! What an opportunity and what a leg up he might get on his future.

I wish him the best of luck and please keep us abreast of how he's doing.

Good for him! Nice to see a young man show such initiative. I wish him all the best, and maybe you will be able to cruise with him one day!

VERY COOL! Now you'll just have to book a bunch of cruises aboard his ship to make sure he's O.K.

Pride of America is that only ship with the all American crew. I think he will enjoy working on the ship and sailing the Hawaiian islands. Good luck to him on the new job.
