Christiana Astill from Go-Cruise will be Godmother to the Emily Brontë and Tracey Scales from Travel Counsellors will be Godmother to Thomas Hardy.
Joseph Grimley, Head of Agency Sales, Riviera Travel, said: “When I called Christina and Tracey to break the news they were both very excited. We decided it would be a refreshing change for two travel agents rather than celebrities to have the honour of becoming Godmothers to our new ships, in a competition that all ladies who entered had an equal chance of winning. After all, agents have played a huge part in our significant growth in European river cruising over the last few years. It promises to be a fantastic day where guests will have a unique preview of our new flag-ship river cruise product, while enjoying a champagne reception, sumptuous lunch on-board, and of course the all-important christening ceremony itself.”
