“Hola, I am Martha all the way from sunny Cancún, México
For the past 16 years, I had one of the most extraordinary adventures of my life; I spent many years living on the Ocean, visiting many beautiful places, just around 48 Countries, and the list must continue. Traveling increases my knowledge of diverse cultures, customs, and communication styles. One of my dreams is to finish the seven wonders of the world, and I am only missing 2, Petra and The Taj Mahal; hopefully, I can visit them soon.
My experience working for a cruise line has helped me understand different customers’ needs, improving their experiences to be unique and unforgettable. I am dedicated, organized, trustworthy, and work efficiently under pressure. I thrive in a culture of positivist customer service and enjoy engaging with customers.”
