Harry Cotterill aboard Crystal Serenity in 2011 at Dover
Last week we received a truly wonderful surprise from one of our loyal supporters, Guillermo Toloza.
During his recent visit aboard Crystal Serenity at the Port of Valparaíso he came across our drawing of the vessel displayed aboard.
The drawing was taken aboard during our visit to the ship on August 2nd 2011. It was officially present to Vice Captain, Cato Christensen in the atrium at Dover.
Guillermo sent us a superb photograph of himself together with our drawing which is displayed aboard in the Officers' Club!
Guillermo Toloza, said:
" Crystal Serenity was the last ship I had the opportunity to work on back on 2011, while she was on drydock in Hamburg. I had the opportunity to see her again, right here in my hometown Valparaíso. This time I brought my wife and daughter with me to show them all the amenities she offers to the very exclusive guests and also the unseen corners."
" When we were touring the Officers' Club my 15 years old daughter Noemí told me ' Dad, look at that drawing, it looks like the ones you showed me on internet made by your 'cyber friend'. I turned around and there it was...a drawing of the Crystal Serenity made by my friend Harry Cotterill."
" I immediately asked my wife to take me a photo and here I am... on board one of the most luxurious ships in the world with a piece of art created by one of the best artist in the world."
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
" It was a great surprise to be sent this fabulous photograph from our fan Guillermo, who lives in Chile. We would like to thank him for sharing his story with us! "
" We are very pleased to know that our drawing of Crystal Serenity was indeed displayed aboard the vessel following the presentation of the drawing at the Port of Dover on August 2nd 2011, when we visited the vessel thanks to the help of The Cruise Portfolio. "
