Our newest and youngest 'Volunteer
@ Sea', Ben is due to sail aboard Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Magic later this year during the early part of August and has generously agreed to present our drawing to the Captain, on behalf of Dream Designs Colchester.
Sometime later in early 2011 we received a response from Disney Cruise Line, on behalf of Karl Holz, President, Disney Cruise Line. We were informed by Disney Cruise Line that unfortunately due to their long established policy, they would be unable to accept our drawing.
The intention of this policy is to avoid any misunderstanding when projects are being created internally or current being worked on which might be similar to submissions made to Disney Cruise Line from outside their company. For this reason, they were unable to accept our offer to send them our drawing of Disney Dream.
However, Disney Cruise Line did acknowledge our accomplishments and wished us all the very best in the future. They also sent us a number of photographs of the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic.
" Although we acknowledge and appreciate this policy, we hope that the Captain and crew aboard Disney Magic, might give our 'Volunteer @ Sea', Ben the opportunity to present our drawing to the them. However, if we are unable to present our drawing to the Captain or crew aboard Disney Magic, will shall endeavour to find another suitable location for the drawing."
"It is a pleasure to be one of Dream Design Colchester’s 'Volunteers @ Sea'. I have always been a huge fan of theirs and now to be given the opportunity to represent them by presenting drawings to various ships is an honour. "
" To present the drawing to the Captain and the crew of the Disney Magic will be a unique and exciting experience and a way for us to show gratitude to them as they work so hard."
