Simon Troman: Pacific Dawn’s Hotel Director

PSD Simon TromanHi to all Bloggers! I recently joined Pacific Dawn in the exciting role as Hotel Director.

Born in the United Kingdom, I joined my first ship, the original Pacific Princess (also known as The Love Boat), in October 1987 in Marseilles France.

I joined Pacific Dawn on 5 May 2009 and what really stands out about P&O Cruises are our fantastic Australian and New Zealand passengers who make my job a pleasure, and secondly the crew – the friendliest I have ever worked with!

With a team of dedicated colleagues I head up a department that offers you Food and Beverage, Accommodation, Entertainment, Medical Services, Casino, Boutiques, Photography , Shore Excursions, Spa Services, Laundry,  Art, logistics, banking administration and many other facilities.
