Having Travelled on Fred Olsen Balmoral on 2 separate occasions I was looking forward to getting on board Boudicca for our annual Christmas Conference.
I have to admit I m a big fan of Fred Olsen, but it has been around 6 years since I have been on board one of their ships.
Remember P&O Adonia? Do you remember where she went?
Well let me tell you. She joined Carnival Corporations ‘voluntourism’ venture Fathom back in May 2016 and became the first US ship to visit Cuba. She has bee taking “voluntourists” on seven-day voyages from Miami to the Dominican Republic, working on activities such as providing clean water, planting crops to help a women’s co-operative produce organic chocolate, and teaching English to the islanders.
Royal Caribbeans newest ship, the 270,000 tonnes Harmony of the Seas was christened in Fort Lauderdale yesterday.
One of the things I love about this story is the fact that Royal Caribbean launched a contest in South Florida looking for an educator who inspires students to “dream big, think differently, and challenge the status quo” to become godmother.
