I am thrilled to share with you all, that I have booked and confirmed a cruise with Ambassador Cruise Line! It's been well over four years since I last had a cruise booked, so I am super excited!
I will be cruising on board Ambition, for three-nights, on the festive weekend getaway, which departs London International Cruise Terminal in Tilbury, Essex on 08 December 2023, and visits Antwerp in Belgium, where the ship stays overnight, before returning to the UK.

I was invited on this short cruise by Ambassador Cruise Line back in the summer, when I presented my drawing on board Ambience in Tilbury. We discussed if I would be drawing Ambition too at some point in the future, and agreed a short cruise in return for my drawing.
I started work on my large-scale drawing of Ambition in early November and completed it in a few weeks. I am very happy with the finished piece. Ambassador Cruise Line's ship are one of the few times I get to use my purple pencils!
During the festive cruise on Ambition, I will meet with the captain to present my drawing to him. Ambassador Cruise Line intent to have my drawing framed ashore, before displaying it on board in the crafts room. I've previously had my artwork presented on loads of ships, but the presentation on Ambition will be a big deal, since Ambition will be the 100th ship my artwork has been presentation on board. It has taken 12 and a half years to achieve, and I've gotten through a lot of pencils! But not many purple ones until recently!
You can view more photos of my finished large-scale drawing of Ambition in the gallery, where you can also view Ambience, as well as more than one hundred other vessels I've drawn.
You can now purchase limited-edition prints of my drawing of Ambition. I am offering 500 small 1:600 scale copies of the drawing, as well as larger full-size 1:187.5 scale and half-size 1:375.0 scale prints, but only 25 of each of these larger sized prints will be produced.
