Seafarers' House pulls out all the stops for our 21st Annual International Golden Compass Award Gala on Saturday, May 13th, 2017!
Our 2017 Golden Compass Honoree is: Jan Swartz, Group President Princess Cruises & Carnival Australia!
Jan Swartz is president of Princess Cruises, the third largest cruise line in the world (based on capacity). Princess Cruises is part of Carnival Corporation & plc, the world’s largest leisure travel company. In December 2016 she was promoted to the role of group president of Princess Cruises and Carnival Australia, responsible for shared services for Carnival Corporation. Also added to her portfolio is executive oversight of P&O Cruises Australia brand.
For Princess Cruises, she leads a global cruise and tour company, comprised of a fleet of 17 modern ships that serve over 1.8 million guests annually. As a vacation brand recognized globally, Princess employs more than 28,000 people and operates in more than 60 countries.
Swartz also serves as president of the Princess Cruises Community Foundation, a non-profit public benefit corporation that provides financial and in-kind support to charity and relief organizations. In this role, she guides the foundation’s mission that serves to touch the lives of the people in the destinations the cruise line visits, the places where employees are from and through education and perseveration of natural and historical global landmarks by responding to disaster relief and supporting global communities’ local health and welfare efforts.
The International Golden Compass is an elegant formal gala returning this year to the exquisite Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Hotel in the Crystal Ballroom. Our honoree has helped us select the tone and texture of her special event and guests can expect an evening of good food, dancing and entertainment as we honor Jan!
