A SUPERYACHT stewardess who associates with billionaires has uncovered mysteries from the sea – including some very strange requests.
Giselle Azueta was introduced to the luxury industry by a friend, but nothing could have prepared her for what she saw – above and below deck.
For the 39-year-old, the job was a free pass to travel the world, but with demanding clients, he found the role stressful.
she said NeedToKnow: “I have always loved the sea and traveling is my passion.”
“We had a family yacht in Puerto Vallarta, so I had a vague idea of boats and grew up sailing.
“I never thought there would be a job like this when I discovered it, but it soon became my dream to work as a stewardess on superyachts.”
The chief stewardess realized her dreams and reached the top position on board.
And her experience has led her to deal with some very odd high-end clients.
Giselle said: “Once a multi-millionaire guest suggested paying US$10,000 (£7,899) to a crew member who was defecating on a glass table while he lay underneath.
“Another guest had expressed a wish to have one of the hostesses keep a close eye on him during dinner.
“And the hostess had to stand in the corner of the dining room and watch him eat dinner.
“But I think all of us who devote ourselves to working on these yachts are crazy.
“You agree to live with strangers on a yacht in the middle of the sea!”
STRICT “SUPERYACHT” SECRET
The veteran stewardess said she doesn’t get discouraged these days after learning a certain industry rule.
According to Giselle, employees should never say the word “no” to a customer.
“Any request, no matter how weird or crazy, it is our duty to fulfill,” she added.
“As long as it’s not sexual or endangers the health or life of the crew.
“Superyacht owners also say that the crew has to match their yacht, they have to be as pretty as their yacht.”
The 39-year-old said that’s why most of the employees around her are young and attractive.
“It’s a very high-paying industry, but it’s also a very shallow industry,” she said.
Since her career, Giselle has been responsible for looking after the guests and their requirements.
They will provide a preference list of food, drink and activities they would like to experience on board.
“I love planning events and themed nights!” said the head stew.
“But I also have to oversee the laundry and housekeeping hostesses and take care of the administration and bookkeeping of the yacht.”
Giselle described the nature of the job and said it will allow you to get to know yourself.
It also offers the opportunity to visit beautiful places around the world.
“All the incredible places, the views, the sunsets, the friends and acquaintances from different parts of the world make it worthwhile,” she said.
“The crew becomes your family.”
This came about when a private jet flight attendant revealed the craziest and worst desires of the most demanding passengers she had served on board.
Stewardess Arta claimed a hygiene-obsessed jet owner made her crawl around the cabin to retrieve individual strands of hair.
Another flight attendant in the same industry, Saskia Swann, even witnessed her boss having sex in his cubicle.
Of the moment she walked in on her boss joining the mile-high club, she said: “All I could see was his feet sticking out from under the covers. I couldn’t see his face, only her bare back. She knelt astride him and moaned.
“It wasn’t the right time to ask, ‘Do you want full English?'”
And fellow stewardess Tia Haskell also shared her bizarre stories.
“A very famous lady asked us to land immediately because she wanted to eat a burger,” she said.
