Harry Cotterill at Harwich Port with Thomson Spirit behind
At Dream Designs Colchester we are delighted to be able to take this opportunity and officially announce to you, two of our latest forthcoming ship visits as well as another official drawing presentation.
We recently took the opportunity to contact the crew aboard Thomson Spirit to request permission to visit the ship and meet with the Captain to officially present our brand new especially assigned drawing of Thomson Spirit.
During the summer of 2009, the staff at Harwich International Port were kind enough to agree to present our previously assigned drawing to the Captain of Thomson Spirit on our behalf.
In return the Captain later invited us aboard the ship on August 28th 2009 where we had the chance to tour the ship and see our drawing which had been framed and displayed in the ship’s reception. We were also invited to visit the bridge although the Captain had disembarked the ship so he was unable to meet with us and join us for lunch aboard.
The crew aboard Thomson Spirit have been kind enough to accept our recent request and have granted us permission to visit the ship. In fact our staff have been given the chance to visit the ship not once but twice, first on September 1st 2012 followed by a second visit on September 12th 2012.
On September 1st 2012 Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, and Gavin Pamment, Photographer, Dream Designs Colchester are set to visit Thomson Spirit, whilst the vessel is berthed alongside the Cruise Terminal at Harwich International Port. Whilst on board Harry and Gavin will have the privilege of meeting with the Captain, where the official presentation of our new drawing will take place. This will be followed by the chance to enjoy light refreshments before touring the ship’s various passenger amenities.
On September 12th 2012 during our second planned visit to the ship, Harry and his parents will be joined by a group of Travel Agents as well as members of staff from Thomson’s Head Office and members of the Ocean Liner Society as well.
Once embarked visitors will be invited on a complete tour of the ship’s passenger amenities, ending at reception. Harry will then be invited to see his brand new drawing of Thomson Spirit which will have been displayed alongside his previous drawing which was presented aboard by Harwich International Port in 2009.
Harry and his parents along with the other visitors will then be invited to enjoy lunch aboard Thomson Spirit before disembarking the vessel later that afternoon.
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
“We are very excited to be visiting Thomson Spirit again, not once but twice! All of our staff are incredibly thankful to the crew aboard Thomson Spirit for giving us such an opportunity.”
“This is a truly fantastic way for us to continue our connection and friendship with Thomson Cruises.”
Harry Cotterill set up his blog when he was just 16-years old, making him one of the youngest cruise bloggers in the world. In later years he became known across the world for his amazing talent of drawing cruise ships!
