Ruby Melendez

Ruby started working for Celebrity Cruises back in May 2008, then transferred to Azamara®. Ruby started her seafarer career as a Utility Pantry in the Galley. In August 2009 Ruby was promoted to Assistant Pantry. Ruby worked night shift and devoted her free time to training for the Beverage department.

Ruby devoted hours to working towards her goal. She recalls her night time Galley colleagues smiling at her as she would come to work still with evening make-up on as she had been assisting at the Looking Glass Bar.

Ruby’s hard work paid off in December 2010, with a successful application of Bar Server. Although Ruby enjoyed working in the Pantry, she found her new position as Bar Server very interesting as working with guests brought a new dimension to her life on board. Ruby soon became a favorite of our guests and became known as “Miss Beautiful Smile”.

Ruby says that working on Azamara Quest is a place to feel very comfortable and feels at home here.

In March 2013 Ruby was promoted to Bar Tender. Ruby shares her insights with fellow crew. If you have the capacity, build your knowledge and make a move. She encourages those who have potential to put themselves forward. “To believe in themselves”. Anybody has a chance to succeed if they want it for themselves. Focus on your job – focus on what you want to achieve to ensure not being disappointed.
