Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth is one of the grandest ships on the sea. If you are a west coast speaker, be advised that this ship will be coming to your town soon. San Francisco will host a 2014 visit from the both Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria. San Fran has 76 cruises on the calendar.
The Queen Elizabeth is the 2nd largest Cunard ever built. This is a very high end ship…YOU could go for free by giving presentations. You have to be good to get accepted. We at SpeakOnCruises and help get you onboard.
Most cruises begin in Southampton, so our UK speakers can have an easy time getting to the ship. But Americans can arrive after only a 4-6 hour flight to join in. Queen Elizabeth is well worth the minor hassle of getting onboard.
Watch this neat overview of the ship – we can help get you a gig on it.
Two years ago, my wife could not join me on a speaking assignment on the #1 rated line – Crystal Cruises. Very nice ships. Only 900+ passengers. It was kinda lonely, but I really don’t mind sailing alone. I get the whole room to myself – huge closet space and I can sleep until I wake up.
There are always plenty of nice folks on board to chat with. The ship had decorations and even a big tree in the main area. The dining room featured the traditional turkey and all the fixings. People really dressed up for the day. Men had tuxedos and women were all decked out. Christmas music filled the hallways and common areas. They really didn’t let you get homesick.
Crystal does allow children, but they are generally kept under control by their parents. The line is not cheap, and former CEO’s, company presidents, celebrities and sports figures often sail with them. If interested, you can go to their website and check out their fares. This is truly a special line. Most are repeat passengers. The ship goes to different ports to keep the regulars coming back.
It was really special to be onboard at Christmas. I’d do it again – with my wife.
