P&O Cruises' Arcadia at sea
Dream Designs Colchester are extremely proud to be able take this opportunity to share with you some very exciting news in our illustrious history of outstanding achievements.
Recently we have been closely in contact with P&O Cruises and last week we were informed that our especially assigned drawing of Arcadia, was to be framed and displayed aboard the vessel.
Earlier this week we received a very pleasant surprise, when P&O Cruises kindly sent us a selection of photographs, which Captain Peter Philpott took of our drawing of Arcadia displayed aboard the vessel.
Our drawing is displayed in a truly wonderful and prominent position, in the main alleyway leading the the Navigation Bridge, directly outside of the Captain's personal office!
Our drawing of Arcadia was officially presented to Captain Peter Philpott by our Volunteers @ Sea, Ernie & Edna, in August 2011, during their 13 night 'Around Britain' cruise aboard the vessel. P&O Cruises were kind enough to arrange for Ernie & Edna to meet with the Captain personally on the Navigation Bridge, where they had the opportunity to officially presented our drawing of Arcadia.
Master of P&O Cruises' Arcadia, Captain Peter Philpott, said:
" The Carpenters on board Arcadia have done their usual superb job and made an excellent frame for Harry's drawing, completely from scratch, using wood they already had in their workshop!
I hope you enjoy the attached photos of it mounted in the alleyway adjacent to the door into the Navigating Bridge and also near to my Office door (pictured directly below)."
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
" I was delighted to be informed by P&O Cruises that our drawing of Arcadia, which was presented to Captain Peter Philpott last month by our honourable Volunteers @ Sea, Ernie & Edna, has now been framed and displayed aboard the vessel. I feel very privileged and proud to know my drawing is displayed in such a prestigious position! "
" I would like to take this opportunity to thank P&O Cruises, including Captain Peter Philpott, his Carpentry team and Kerry Laight, PA to Carol Marlow, Managing Director, P&O Cruises & Philip Price, Head of Brand Marketing, for all the help and support given. "
