We contacted Portuscale Cruises sometime before the visit to request permission to visit Azores and officially present Harry's especially assigned drawing.
Portuscale Cruises very kindly granted permission for both Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester and Gavin Pamment, Chief Photographer, Dream Designs Colchester to visit Azores.
Harry and Gavin had been informed that they would be able to board Azores from 10:00 and arrived at the Cruise Terminal just before, to see that the ship was only just berthing alongside. Unfortunately as a result of the ships late arrival, embarkation was also delayed as the visitors list had not yet been sent to the Passes Office.
Whilst they waited for the visitors list to arrive at the Passes Office, Harry and Gavin took the opportunity to take a number of photographs of Azores berthed alongside the Cruise Terminal, including some with Harry's especially assigned drawing, which as always attracted some attention from onlookers.
Boarding Azores on Deck 4 (Mediterranean Deck) Harry and Gavin were asked to wait in the ship's reception area, whilst a the Staff Captain came to meet them. A few minutes later the Staff Captain arrived and welcomed them on board Azores.
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
"It was a pleasure for us to visit Portuscale Cruises' Azores during her visit to Harwich International Port on May 6th 2014. We were delighted to be able to officially present our especially assigned drawing too! Overall we were quite impressed with the quality of the passenger amenities considering the ship was originally constructed in 1948."
"We would like to extend our thanks to the Staff Captain for taking the time to give us a guided tour of Azores, although it was a shame we did not get to see all of the passenger amenities on board."
