I wanted to take the chance to leave you all a last message, personally, before I leave for Southampton with my father, tomorrow morning.
We have had an extremely busy period lately, with many exciting development and brand new drawings being assigned. It's been fantastic to receive such a great level of interest and a pleasure to supply our latest customers and clients with their very own drawings.
Anyhow, we will be leaving Colchester at 10:00 tomorrow (Monday 4th June) and hopefully arriving in Southampton at approximately 14:00, where we will then book into our hotel, before what will be a very exciting day!
On Tuesday 4th June, we'll be up very early, to witness the arrival of Cuanrd Line's three magnificent ships, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria & Queen Elizabeth.
Later than day we will then embark aboard Queen Mary 2, before setting sail late that evening in spectacular style, celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen. Of course not forgetting the planned displayed from the Red Arrows earlier that evening too!
We'll then have a wonderful 5 nights to enjoy aboard Queen Mary 2, my absolute favourite ship! Ports of call include, Rotterdam, Zeebrugee and Le Havre, before arriving back in Southampton on Sunday 10th June 2012.
On Wednesday 6th June 2012, I will be celebrating my 18th Birthday aboard. I wonder if any surprised will have been arranged? In all honesty, I'm quite doubtful!
Whilst aboard I hope to be able to meet with the Master, Captain Keven Oprey, who I met during my last voyage in October 2011. If so, I will be presenting him with my brand new, especially assigned drawing of Queen Mary 2.
We'll, it's almost time to leave, so here's it is. Over 18 months of waiting.
