During the summer of 2009, Harwich International Port were kind enough to agree to present our drawing of Thomson Spirit to the Captain on our behalf. We were later invited by the Captain to visit the ship on August 28th 2009, where we had the opportunity to visit the bridge before touring the ship and enjoying lunch on board in the Lido Restaurant. The visit then ended in the ship’s reception area where we had the surprise of seeing our drawing displayed.
After such a successful drawing presentation and visit aboard the ship in 2009 when we realised Thomson Spirit was returning to Harwich International Port in August 2009 we immediately wanted to visit the ship again. We therefore took the decision to contact the ship to request permission to visit the ship again and officially present the Captain and his crew with our brand new especially assigned drawing.
Sue Stewart, Thomson Charter Manager, Thomson Spirit responded to our request and agreed to grant us permission to visit the ship whilst at Harwich International Port. After corresponding with her we arranged to visit the ship twice, once to present our drawing and the second to see it officially displaced aboard.
At approximately 10:05 were met by one of the ship’s Security Officers who escorted them through security at the Cruise Terminal before taking them aboard Thomson Spirit. Once aboard they were given their shipboard passes by the Security Officer and were then met by Sue Stewart, Thomson Charter Manager, Thomson Spirit.
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
“Our visit aboard Thomson Spirit and the official presentation of our brand new drawing to the Captain was a fantastic way for us to continue our friendship with Thomson Cruises”
“I very much look forward to visiting Thomson Spirit again with my parents on September 12th 2012 to see the brand new drawing on display.”
