    Cruise Dot Forum Celebrity Watch

    CELEBRITY WATCH!

    There's nothing better than celebrity endorsement for adding glamour to a holiday. But what about cruising? Well, it's unlikely you will see a A-list star on board a mega ship cruise line. Unless of course - you get invited to a launch/Christening or a VIP event.

    Did you know?

    "Celebrities are attracted to Cunard, and Queen Mary 2 in particular, because some of them would rather travel by sea than air," explained Michael Gallagher, spokesman for the line in the UK. "If their schedule permits them to travel to Europe or the States for the latest premiere or concert, then they will opt for Queen Mary 2. The Grills system also helps as they can enjoy all the facilities -- penthouse, restaurant and bar -- without really having to spend time in the rest of the ship should they choose not to."

    And you - have you ever seen a celebrity on one of your cruises? Did you manage to get a picture with them? Make sure you upload it here to earn your celeb points!

      No photo I'm afraid but last year on Aurora in the Baltic Lembik Opik was on board and was sat with him for lunch one day. A lot of people think he is a bit of a joke, but I found him to be very sensible and well informed. Thouroughly enjoyed the experience.

        I practically fell into Des O'connor when we were on the Royal Princess visit, and still didn't see him. My OH did though. I never seem to recognise any one unless they are pointed out to me................................................ ........Carol

          "And now, from Norwich, it's the quiz of the week."

          Went on a SAGA cruise last year and while waiting in the departure lounge at Southampton said to my wife "look at that old duffer over there. Who's he think he is with that hat on, Nicolas Parsons"?

          Turned out it was indeed Nicolas Parsons and his wife - both lovely people who mixed with everyone, and were very approachable......

              most of the stars you would not recognise without their TV make up on.

                Naturally, on a Strictly cruise, you expect to meet the celebs but what I didn't expect was how friendly, approachable, patient and downright 'normal' they would be fullsizeoutput_2825.jpeg
