This “Spotlight” goes to Leah Borbo. Leah is a waiter on the Coral Princess. What she enjoys about her job is all the different cultures she gets to learn about first hand with from all her guests.  Leah’s 3 children: Elaine Ruth Ashlley, Genevieve Allison, and son, Semper Fidelis, all reside in her native land…The Phillipines. She has been with Princess Cruise Lines for 5 years.

20150508_100326 Sharing this month’s “Employee Spotlight” is Nikola, who is also aboard the Ruby Princess. Nikola is a waiter in the dining department, working on his 6th contract. The best part of his job is that “he likes the people”. His three favorite places to visit are Dubrovnik, Capetown, and Boston, Mass. Nikola is lucky to have his wife working on the ship with him.
