On January 7th 2012, Bradley Yesberg, who is just 16 years old and lives in Australia, boarded P&O Cruises Australia's Pacific Dawn, along with his family and girlfriend, before embarking on their 7 night cruise aboard the vessel.
A number of months before, Bradley contacted us to ask if it was possible for him to present a drawing on our behalf. We were of course delighted to offer him such an opportunity and in December 2011, especially assigned a drawing of Pacific Dawn for him to present on our behalf.
Fortunately whilst aboard, Bradley's persistence enabled him to meet with Captain Salvatore Lupo personally. He informed us that he went to the reception desk aboard Pacific Dawn a number of times and upon each return was informed they were still detailing with his request to present our especially assigned drawing to the Captain.
On January 12th 2012, Bradley and his family enjoyed dinner aboard the ship and afterwards attended the Captain's Cocktail Party in the Dome, a well known area aboard Pacific Dawn. Upon his arrival he was greeted by many of the ship's crew who were very interested and keen to see our drawing, including Captain Salvatore Lupo, the Staff Captain and the Cruise Director too.
In his email Bradley also thanked us for allowing him to have the opportunity to offically present our drawing on behalf of Dream Designs Colchester.
Bradley Yesberg, said:
" Overall this experience was amazing. The Captain also said he will get a nice frame made and put it somewhere for the crew to see. Thank you Harry. This made my cruise. I'd be happy to do this again and again for you."
" We are delighted that Bradley Yesberg had the opportunity to meet with Captain Salvatore Lupo personally during his 7 night cruise and was able to present our especially assigned drawing of Pacific Dawn to him."
" I would personally like to take this opportunity to extend my greatest appreciation to Bradley and his family for presenting the drawing on behalf of Dream Designs Colchester. Thank you! "
