I’ve been watching the diary and hoping there would still be places available @Cruiser54 . It turns out that we have guests from the US on that very date and, while they’re not arriving until evening, it would be too tight a schedule to come down to Fairlie for the ship’s visit. Perhaps next time!
I hope that you will help me with this study and look forward to your questionnaire responses
Are you organising cruise ship visits for the over 50’s as part of your BSc? I’m sure you’d get lots of information in discussion with the participants
My name is James Brincat, I am BSc Cruise Management student at Plymouth University (UK) currently undertaking my honours project. I am conducting a study regarding the changing perceptions of the over 50’s towards cruising as a vacation style.The study will look at how perceptions of the cruise industry have changed and developed to what it is currently today for people over the age of 50.
The results of the survey will be very beneficial for the cruise industry as there is a current lack of research in this field. If published this honours projected will be viewed by major cruise lines within the industry to get an understanding of the over 50’s current perception of cruising and what they can do to improve their service for this demographic.
An opportunity to take part in this research study is currently available, by completing a very short questionnaire you will be assisting in benefiting the cruise industry, by gaining valuable data to improve services, and also myself with my honours project.
The questionnaire has been fully approved by Plymouth University data protection team and will not be used for any other purpose that this research project, it is entirely anonymous and ask’s no personal information what so ever.
I hope that you will help me with this study and look forward to your questionnaire responses, This hyperlink will take you to the questionnaire : https://plymouthbusiness.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_ea4ZKrRP8xkHRml

please do apply. Ship Visits in Scotland are infrequent and we still have some places available for Serenissima.
I’m still putting together the 2017 diary, waiting on some dates then I’ll know if I can go or not.
A good idea as you can check out the facilities and cabins before you book
We love ship’s visits and find them very interesting. Problem for us is that they are mainly in Southampton. We have been on a Celebrity and HAL ship’s visits in Liverpool and also Edinburgh.
Serenissima – that is the good old Harald Jarl.
We had three marvellous trips on her up the coast of Norway, spending all our time on the deck wings watching the scenery. I’d also be tempted to visit for old times sake but getting to Largs is a non-runner…
I think you’re right, they give a good insight to what the ship might be like to cruise on and have always been very popular with Silvertravellers.
