First of all thank you to everyone who took the time to nominate a colleague for our first round of CCS Star Awards for 2024, we had a total of 13 nominations, with some people receiving two nominations.

It’s great to see so many of you recognising others who are living and breathing our Culture Essentials. It was a tough decision to make but as we announced at the recent town hall, our winners are:

Lucia Racaniello, Senior Inspector in Monfalcone for Respect & Protect, who received two nominations.

Here’s what Lucia’s nominators had to say about her:

“I am delighted to nominate Lucia Racaniello for her outstanding dedication to environmental protection and exemplary display of diligence and responsibility. Lucia’s quick actions prevented potential environmental risks while ensuring the best possible delivery of Sun Princess. Her meticulous approach, foresight, and personal ownership in addressing the situation set a commendable standard for others to follow. Lucia’s exceptional contributions merit recognition for her unwavering commitment to our values of Respect & Protect, Speak Up and Improve.”

“As a result of Lucia’s diligence at delivery of the Sun Princess, she identified an issue that if not found could have generated a very significant environmental issue for the ship, Princess and Carnival Corporation as a whole. Her actions secured part of our Corporate Mission & Purpose to ‘honour the integrity of every ocean we sail’.”

Amazing nominations, congratulations Lucia!

The Whole of the S.724/725 Pre-Contract Team for Improve including Michele Verdoliva, Josip Peranic, Simon Pattison, Stefano Negro, Ulf Hirsekorn, Julian Phan, Mark McQuire, Darren Town, John Dodsworth, Olly Harris, Mark Mitchell, Giuseppe Gelbmann, Andrea Bartoli, Tom Gunn, Holger Vatter

Here’s what their nominator had to say about them:

“The team collaborated really well, they respected each other and acted as a really professional and joined up team.  They had a good relationship with the Meyer Werft team through the pre-contract negotiations, which were sometimes challenging. 

 “The team demonstrated a true passion and commitment towards their jobs, to Corporate Shipbuilding and to the Carnival group when working to finalise the specifications and documents. They worked many extra hours, and worked during their holidays, to ensure that Corporate Shipbuilding, and the brand, delivered the required documents on time and to the expected quality.”  

What a great team effort, well done everyone!
