Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegain Pearl at sea
After a number of weeks Dream Designs Colchester are pleased to be able to take this opportunity update you on the progress of our Cruise Ship Drawing of Norwegian Pearl.
Our drawing of Norwegian Pearl departed Dream Designs Colchester a number of months ago, when it was sent to our ‘Volunteers @ Sea’, John & Marilyn, who live in Seattle in the United States.
John & Marilyn were originally due to present our drawing to the Captain on behalf of Dream Designs Colchester, during their 7 night cruise aboard the vessel last month. Unfortunately our drawing encountered a delay in shipping and did not arrive in time for John & Marilyn to be able to present the drawing to the Captain during their cruise.
However, whilst aboard Norwegian Pearl, our ‘Volunteers @ Sea’, John & Marilyn were able to meet with Matthhias Holz, Hotel Director aboard Norwegian Pearl, who later contacted Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester.
Matthias Holz, Hotel Director, Norwegian Pearl , said:
" I have just learned about you and your amazing story! We are all very impressed about your drawing you have made of our beautiful Norwegian Pearl and are very excited, as we have been informed by a passenger named Mr. Shulman that you are planning to send this drawing as a gift/present to us onboard."
Matthias Holz, Hotel Director, Norwegian Pearl, added:
" Unfortunately, I am leaving for vacation but ensure you that we will stay in contact with you and Mr. Shulman to make all necessary arrangements and to find the perfect spot onboard to display your artwork! We also have been on your website and feel honored to be selected by you making drawings from our ships."
Our ‘Volunteer @ Sea’, John, has since been in contact with the current Hotel Director aboard Norwegian Pearl and has been invited aboard the vessel on July 17th 2011, along with his wife Marilyn whilst the ship is berthed in their home town of Seattle.
During the visit John & Marilyn will be able to present our drawing to the ship on our behalf, although it is not yet sure whether the Captain will be able to receive it in person. We have also been informed that the onboard photographer shall be there to capture the official drawing presentation. John & Marilyn have also been invited to enjoy lunch onboard.
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
" I am delighted that Norwegian Cruise Line have been kind enough to invited our 'Volunteers @ Sea' John & Marilyn aboard Norwegian Pearl, whilst docked in Seattle, to allow the official presentation our Cruise Ship Drawing of Norwegian Pearl to take place. All of us at Dream Designs Colchester would like to extend our appreciation to Norwegian Cruise Line for making this possible."
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!
