Last week I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Julie Peasgood, after being invited to feature as a guest on her TV programme the 'Bloggers Guide to Cruising' for the recently launched TV Cruise Channel.
The interview took place at a studio in York, which is a few hundred miles away from where we are located in Colchester. Nevertheless it was well worth the trip! On the morning of the interview I was given some questions to look over and asked if I would like to add or remove any. I was more than happy with the questions which had been prepared for the interview.
Before long it was then time to head downstairs to the recording studio, where I was interviewed by Julie. I was a little worried at first about the cameras and people watching but I actually rather enjoyed it in the end and completely forgot the cameras were even there!
You will be able to watch the programme by tuning into TV Cruise Channel, Sky Channel 261 on Monday 04 July at 5:30pm. But if you can't wait until then or won't be free to tune in then you can preview the interview anytime on YouTube.
I hope you all enjoy watching!
I write this blog just before I head to Southampton for an overnight stay, ahead of our latest ship visit planned tomorrow, 27 June 2016.
I’m very excited to be visiting P&O Cruises’ Britannia, along with our Non-Executive Director, Gavin. This will be the first time either of us have stepped aboard! We’re keen to book a cruise on her sometime so asked P&O Cruises if it would be possible to have a look round, but more importantly we also wanted to review the ship to tell you all more about Britannia.
During our time on board we will be taken the bridge where I hope to present my drawing to the Captain. We also hope to see as much of the ship as possible to share with you. Do look out for updates on our social media pages and our complete ship visit review in the coming weeks.
Until recently Viking was only known for river cruising but 2015 saw the launch of the first ocean ship for Viking Cruises, Viking Star, followed by Viking Sea which was recently christened in London.
It was a shame I couldn't be there to witness the christening and see the ship but I'm thrilled to be visiting Viking Sea during her inaugural visit to Harwich International Port on 19 June 2016. I'll be joined aboard by our Non-Executive Director, Gavin and our Cruise Ambassador, Jordan who are both equally as excited as I am.
Viking Cruises' ocean ships are far from the biggest or most innovative cruise ships in the world but instead offer something a little more intimate and relaxed with their all inclusive hassle free cruise experience. Both Viking Star and Viking Sea seem so spacious, bright and fresh looking so I can't wait to get aboard.
Whilst on board we will also be meeting with the Captain on the bridge, where I will be presenting my drawing, which I'm currently working hard to finish right now!
Keep a look out on our social media pages for photos and posts from our visit and of course don't miss our complete ship visit review in the coming weeks.
