The P&O Cruises’ vessel Artemis was berthed at Mayflower Cruise Terminal on Sunday 7th November 2010. Artemis was due to leave her berth at Southampton Sunday evening, but her departure was delayed until the following afternoon. The stricken vessel was manoeuvred to Ocean Terminal assisted by 3 tugs.
Harry said " Embarking Queen Mary 2 was quite a performance, with crowds of passengers waiting, queuing, pushing and shoving as they rushed to board the liner! Once we we’re aboard however the level of stress declined. "
Harry said " Viewing the Queen Elizabeth aboard her fleet mate Queen Mary 2 was a unique opportunity, with the added excitement of both of the ship’s horns blasting as Queen Elizabeth passed. "
He added "Our delayed departure from the berth in Southampton did not effect our arrival in Cherbourg the following morning, due to the short distance between both ports "
Harry said " After touring the Queen Mary 2 with Stephen Payne in 2007, I had forgotten just how large the ship was! It took a number of hours to tour the ship completely. "
Harry said "It was a great opportunity to visit the bridge of the Queen Mary 2 and meet Commodore Bernard Warner. I was so pleased that he was delighted with my drawing which I presented to him."
