Christian Cruise Latest News SEPTEMBER 2016

Thanks for signing up to receive future news of our Christian Themed Cruises, and welcome to our latest update!

Dear Cruise Family,

We have recently returned from our latest Christian Cruise aboard the new MV Magellan around the UK. Sadly, a bad weather front prevented us from our plans to visit Iona, but there was plenty of other activity and the sun came out soon enough in more ways than one. Eurovision star Dana sang in cabaret and then chatted about her faith amidst the struggles of life, Syd Little entertained us with an evening cabaret of his musical heroes and then talked about how the death of his son revitalised his faith, Ann Widdecombe fielded a lively `no holds barred` question and answer opportunity for passengers and talked about her strong beliefs. BBCTV`s Pam Rhodes presented her own Songs of Praise on board in celebration of her new book Saints & Sailors which was based on our Christian Cruises. Dave & Pat Bilbrough treated us to an afternoon concert and led us in some reflective worship whilst Sunday Services and a daily reflection were inspirationally presented by Very Rev Andrew McLellan. Our journey with the Celtic Saints was quite fascinating, and we must say a big thank you to all the passengers who joined us for what was a memorable cruise together.



I am thrilled to announce that we now have a confirmed date for a Christian Cruise next year which will be:

EASTER CRUISE – Springtime in the Azores & Madeira aboard MARCO POLO 4th April 2017


Following the popularity of our Easter Themed Cruises we are pleased to offer yet another opportunity to enjoy star studded entertainment and interviews, alongside special Easter themed events and services led by a respected church leader. Featuring TV funnyman John Archer, Dads Army Vicar Frank Williams and a host of other celebrities to be announced, it’s the perfect combination for Relaxation for the Body; Stimulation of the mind; and Refreshment for the spirit.
