Our amazing colleagues on board our ships work so hard to create unforgettable holiday happiness for our guests, so we’re taking a moment to shine a spotlight on them! Continuing our Holiday Heroes series, find out what makes them shine, hear about their roles, ambitions, hobbies, and what life is like working aboard our P&O Cruises ships.

Next up meet our very own Sushi Master, Megan Christie…

Megan Christie is the sushi master at Green & Co feat. Mizuhana on Arvia. She’s from Jamaica and has been with P&O Cruises for three years. Prior to her current role, she worked on Iona and has been working at sea for 15 years.

“I joined P&O Cruises three years ago as chef de partie on Iona. When I heard about Arvia, I didn’t know that there would be a sushi restaurant but when I found out, I knew I had to go for it as it had been a dream of mine for a while.

We try to display our creativity, our art, and our skills so that the guests will be amazed. There’s a lot of love and passion in my food. I really enjoy that sense of performance and interacting with the guests. We cooks are always at the back, and we’re so busy hustling and bustling just to get that product out that we don’t have time to sit down and interact with the guests; but in Mizuhana, I get the opportunity to really talk to them and find out how their day is.

Training in sushi arts was the hardest thing I’ve done in my entire life! It takes plenty of discipline. But it’s been an amazing journey. If you have that passion and drive, there are no boundaries. I love the fact that I get to really talk to the guests and find out their experiences. It’s a good experience for the guests to ask questions and I get the opportunity to share what I know, and also learn from them too. I’m just amazed at all their comments and messages and posts on Facebook. There has been such a positive reaction! I’m beyond proud of what we have here. I can look back and say, “Yes, I did something amazing!”

When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my daughter and watch Japanese anime. And I love to sing. That’s my hidden talent… don’t tell anyone!”

Thank you Megan for sharing your story with us!

We’ll be sharing more of our P&O Cruises Holiday Heroes over the next few weeks, so be sure to keep a look out! Can’t wait? Meet them now on the P&O Cruises blog.
