As part of our series of blog post for Virgin Limited Edition Star of the Yearwe are proud to present Necker Belle's Star of the Year finalist, Thandi Sihlali, Chief Stewardess of Necker Belle
Over the last 12 month, Necker Belle has undergone a long period of refits which have not dulled her enthusiasm and she has been invaluable in her support to the team during this time of change. The vessel itself has spent more time out of service than in service the past 12 months, and Thandi is the sole survivor of the stresses and challenges presented by a yacht in the shipyard far from home.
