Having already got four cruises booked this year, I have been trying my best not to book any more, at least not just yet anyway. But, yes you guessed it, today I booked yet another cruise!
There isn't long to wait either, as we depart Southampton on 18 March 2016. Our Non-Executive Director, Gavin and I are booked on a 7 night cruise aboard Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' flagship, Balmoral. Our itinerary includes three ports of call, Antwerp, Belgium, Hamburg, Germany, where we will stay overnight and Amsterdam, Netherlands, which is interestingly another overnight visit.
This will be our third cruise with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines' having previously enjoyed two 2 night mini cruises, on Braemar and Boudicca. We are very excited to be booked on a longer cruise on this occasion and to be sailing aboard the flagship in the fleet!
Now with just over a month to go I need to find some time around all my current drawings, to slot in a brand new drawing of Balmoral to present to the Captain whilst on board. Of course, the drawing will feature the new livery, with her dark grey hull and bright red stripe above.
Until next time... happy cruising!
