On a sunny day in September, the Maritime department swapped Engine Room visits and project planning for outdoor games and a BBQ at the team’s Summer away day in the New Forrest.

100 Maritime colleagues descended upon Avon Tyrrell for a day packed with games, such as Kubb, croquet and giant Jenga. There were also activities including raft building, mountain biking, a treasure hunt, and a fiercely competitive quiz. Colleagues let their hair down and enjoyed the last of the Summer sunshine while getting creative!

The away day was also a chance to recognise the tremendous efforts of the Maritime team, and in particular some individuals who were recognised by colleagues in the Q3 Value Awards.

Congratulations to…


Pete Harvell who won the individual nomination for his work managing the decommissioning of Oriana, working with a wide range of stakeholders both internally and externally.


The team award went to the E-Muster Project Team, who have done a fantastic job in rolling out a challenging project which will keep our Guests and crew safe in an emergency. A special congrtulations to the E-Mustering team: Debbie Edmunds; Greta Monkeviciute; Will Fuller; Vito Ferreti; Peter Hunter; Russell Hobbs; Andy Walker; Darren Welch.


Nat Phelps was a runner up for his work on Oriana’s last cruise, where Oriana was required to be POLAR coded certified; which meant the collection of a lot of paperwork and information.


Dave Varty was also a runner up for his renowned work across the business for his selfless support of charities and charitable events within CUK.

  Congratulations to all nominees across the department.
