Meet Chief Engineer Giuseppe from Regent Cruises
As a Chief Engineer for Regent Seven Seas Cruises, Giuseppe’s job is quite literally to ensure that the ship is sailing smoothly. Not only is he responsible for the operation of the ships engines, but he also leads a crew of thirty-four with a lengthy list of job responsibilities which include air conditioning, plumbing, generators and many more.
Giuseppe was born in the beautiful area of Piano di Sorrento; which is also where he studied Engineering at the local college. After completing his studies, Giuseppe joined the Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) where he worked for five years sailing around the world on container ships. After leaving container ships, he transferred over to MSC Cruises, where he worked for four years before moving to Carnival Cruise Lines. Giuseppe then joined the Regent family in 2003 and to this day continues to work as Chief Engineer aboard Regent’s luxurious and all-inclusive vessels.
When he is not working, Giuseppe likes to spend time at his homes in Piano di Sorrento and also in Cape Town, South Africa - his wife’s hometown. Giuseppe thinks a career at sea is not just a job, but a lifestyle and it allows him to see the world in comfort and style.
