This was in fact our 4th visit aboard Thomson Spirit, our first being on August 28th 2009.
On this particularly visit Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester was joined aboard Thomson Spirit by Gavin Pamment, Chief Photographer, Dream Designs Colchester.
They arrived at Harwich International Port somewhat earlier than planned, so spent some time in the Café adjacent to the Cruise Terminal. At approximately 10:30, they made their way into the Cruise Terminal to collect their boarding passes from the Pass Office. Harry and Gavin were then invited to make their way aboard Thomson Spirit, passing through security before making their way along the passenger boarding gangway.
A short while later Dawn Lancaster came to meet and welcome Harry and Gavin aboard Thomson Spirit. Nearby to where they boarded on Deck 4 (Main Deck) Harry had the opportunity to view his new drawing of Thomson Spirit displayed in the Reception area, which was officially presented to Captain Ioannis Notarakis on September 1st 2012.
Entering the bridge, Captain Ioannis Notarakis was quick to welcome Harry and Gavin, who he last met on September 1st 2012 during the official presentation of our drawing of Thomson Spirit.
Although both Harry and Gavin had toured Thomson Spirit previously they still enjoyed exploring some of the many venues on board, such as the Broadway Show Lounge, High Spirits bar and the Lido Deck & Terrace Grill before making their way to the Lido Restaurant on Deck 5 (Broadway Deck).
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
" We were very happy when Thomson Cruises agreed to welcome us back aboard Thomson Spirit again this year at Harwich International Port. It was a honour for both myself and Gavin to meet with Captain Ionnais Notaraksis on the bridge."
" It was also wonderful to be able to see our newest drawing proudly displayed aboard Thomson Spirit nearby to the reception area on board."
