Andre grew up in cosmopolitan South Africa, where he studied Entertainment Management, majoring in Dance. Having completed his studies, he toured with a national dance company that subsequently appointed him Company Manager.
He joined Princess Cruises in 2002 and immediately made his mark, moving up swiftly through the ranks to become Cruise Director in 2006. Following on from these successes, he was excited to join MSC Cruises last year for the deployment of MSC Divina in the United States, an area with which he is very familiar, having served there in the cruise industry for almost 12 years.
When not working at sea he resides in Cape Town, where he enjoys nothing more than to relax with family and friends.
