CFR launches first-ever Ship of the Year Awards

CFR launches first-ever Ship of the Year Awards

For our first publication of the new decade, the Spring/Summer 2020 issue of Cruise & Ferry Review, we asked our readers to nominate their favourite passenger ships with a view to crown four winners of our inaugural Ship of the Year Awards in the magazine.

While we hadn’t anticipated that the results would come at a time where the world is facing a health crisis and the passenger shipping industry is on pause, perhaps the thousands of votes received can serve as an ideal way to remind ourselves of the achievements, passion and innovative spirit that the industry has long been celebrated for.

The new decade has also brought other changes, including a refresh of our branding and design for consistency with our annual Cruise & Ferry Interiors and Cruise & Ferry Itinerary Planning publications.

We hope you enjoy our new annual feature and refreshed look.

Transition to home working

Transition to home working

In support of the UK government’s request for everyone to work from home if possible, colleagues at Tudor Rose are now well under way with a transition out of our office in central Leicester. We hope that this will help to minimise the transmission of coronavirus.

Thanks to technologies such as Skype and Microsoft Teams, our communication with clients and colleagues is as effective as ever. We’re taking heed of the great guidance provided by Corey Hynes, the CEO of Learn on Demand Systems, a client of ours that works exclusively on a work from home basis. And our pets are certainly loving the fact we’re all around a bit more. By next week we will all be at home, but we’re open for business as usual and here to support all of our clients through these challenging times. We’d like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families all the best.

ICFR takes a tour of Scarlet Lady

ICFR takes a tour of Scarlet Lady

Virgin Voyages’ first-ever cruise ship kicked off her showcase tour at the Port of Dover in the UK on 21 February and Rebecca Gibson from our editorial team was lucky enough to take a look around.

While onboard, Rebecca explored the ship’s stunning contemporary interiors, watched an amazing acrobatic performance and sampled the best Mexican meal she’s ever had in the Pink Agarve restaurant. In addition, she attended a press conference, where Virgin founder Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Voyages CEO Tom McAlpin and several other executives discussed the inspiration behind the brand, the ship and the adult-only cruise experience.

“Scarlet Lady is the culmination of 50 years of practice...every little detail is incredible,” said Branson.

Rebecca also interviewed Virgin Voyages’ Dee Cooper to ask how she worked with a collective of interior designers to bring the 'modern romance of sailing' to Scarlet Lady. The interview will appear in the 2020 issue of Cruise & Ferry Interiors, so subscribe to make sure you don’t miss it!

Tudor Rose writers take their maiden voyages

Tudor Rose writers take their maiden voyages

Two members of the editorial team at Tudor Rose – Richard Humphreys (Pictured left) and new recruit Alex Smith – took their maiden voyages on cruise ships at the end of October, while representing our International Cruise & Ferry Review publication for the first time.

Alex celebrated with MSC Cruises as it took delivery of MSC Grandiosa from Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire and sailed to Le Havre. His favourite areas of the ship included the virtual reality maze and the large LED screen covering the ship’s internal promenade – the tasty food was also a big hit with Alex and everyone else onboard!

Meanwhile, Richard joined Norwegian Cruise Line on Norwegian Encore’s pre-inaugural cruise from Germany to England. Among Richard’s many highlights were the amazing food, the theatre shows and, of course, trying out the electric go karts on the top-deck speedway!

Visit CruiseandFerry.net to read more about both trips and head to our Twitter and Facebook pages to see some of the photos.
