Terri Cybuliak of Princess Cruiises

The original “Love Boat” television series made the Ship’s Captain the star of the ship. The unsung hero of cruise ship operations is the Hotel General Manager. The accomplished Hotel General Manager aboard Discovery Princess is Terri Cybuliak and she is our guest.

Last year Princess Cruises celebrated and honored the Discovery Princess Madrina – Hotel General Manager Terri Cybuliak – currently serving onboard Discovery Princess, leading a team of 1,200 crew members within the hotel department. “Her main role is to ensure exceptional guest experience from entertainment to food and beverage, housekeeping and guest services.” She is highly visible to the 3,660 cruise guests aboard Discovery Princess and welcomes one-on-one interaction with the passengers.

“Terri first joined Princess in 1998 as a Junior Assistant Purser on the original Crown Princess. As Hotel General Manager, Terri helped launch Majestic Princess in China and was heavily engaged in the planning of that ship. With Sky Princess, Terri became the first female Hotel General Manager at Princess to launch a newbuild from a shipyard.”

“I am honored to be the Madrina of Discovery Princess. This is a culmination of not only my achievements but also those who have supported me and influenced the leader I’ve become,” said Terri Cybuliak, Discovery Princess madrina. “Princess has afforded me the opportunity to travel the world and I am forever grateful for these experiences.”
