Everyone looks for a great price on a cruise, right!? Thanks to a friend of mine I found a smashing deal with MSC Cruises for a four-night cruise on board MSC Preziosa.
The cruise departs Southampton on 22 May 2019 and cruises to Hamburg, stopping off in Zeebrugge as well as an overnight call into Amsterdam. We’re not too fussed about the ports of call but we love Amsterdam so it will be good to visit once again and have plenty of time to explore.
On 21 April 2018 I was lucky enough to step aboard the brand new Norwegian Bliss during her inaugural visit to Southampton. Just six days before the ship docked in Southampton I secured a place on the visitors list and also completed my large-scale drawing of the ship which measures nearly 2 metres in length.
I was able to get in touch with the Staff Captain, Robert Lundberg, who had met me indirectly three times before when I had presented drawings on board Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Getaway and Norwegian Escape during their inaugural visits to Southampton.
The Staff Captain recalled seeing me present my drawings on the three previous ships and was kind enough to grant me permission to visit Norwegian Bliss to present my newest drawing on board the brand new ship. I was a little worried I was going to miss out getting on board so when I received the email from the Staff Captain direct from the ship I was over the moon!!
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!
