Onlookers watch as Celebrity Eclipse passes Calshot, Hampshire
On Saturday 16th July 2011 the City of Southampton shall witness a recording breaking six cruise ships berth simultaneously. This is the second time during
the course of 2011 that Southampton has seen this many cruise ships berth simultaneously.
In January 2011 Southampton saw Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria, Black Watch, Balmoral, Saga Ruby and Arcadia berthed together, the first time this number cruise ships had been seen in the port together for close to 50 years.
On July 16th 2011 an extravaganza of cruise ships will meet in Southampton, including Venutra, Celebrity Eclipse, Grand Princess, Crown Princess, Balmoral and Artania which recently left the P&O Cruises fleet, previously know as Artemis.
The day set to be a spectacular event for maritime enthusiasts with many onlookers expected to turn out to see the ships in port and depart their berths together that afternoon. Dream Designs Colchester plan to visit Southampton to
join in the event and watch the six cruise ships depart their berths.
Further more in June 2012 Cunard Line’s Royal Rendezvous will take place to celebrate the Diamond Jubliee of Her Majesty The Queen. The following month ‘The Grand Event’ shall take place, where the entire P&O Cruises fleet will berth in Southampton together, an event on a scale which has never been seen before.
We are currently working very hard to find time within our schedule to assign six brand new cruise ship drawings, for each of the six ships that will be berthed in Southampton for the Six Ship Extravaganza!
Harry Cotterill, President & Managing Director, Dream Designs Colchester, said:
" The Six Ship Extravaganza will be an astonishing event for Southampton and we are very excited to be able to join the many onlookers to watch the six ships depart their berths."
" It is wonderful for me to be given such an opportunity to draw each of the six ships, for such an important event in the maritime world."
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!
