Ahoy! Havering Sixth Formers’ cruise tour

Havering Sixth Form College Travel and Tourism students were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour and slap-up meal aboard a holiday cruise liner.

The Upper Sixth students at the college in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch, visited the Fred Olsen Cruise ship, Breamar, docked at Dover.

They were invited on board to see the ship being prepared for a 13-day journey around the Canary Islands and looked around the decks, cabins and the cruise facilities. They even received a 5-star lunch!

Tutor Joan Barry said: “This was a fantastic opportunity and experience for the students. It has brought an inspirational and real life dimension to the Travel and Tourism course.

“The students were able to complete their worksheets and there were experts on hand to answer all their questions.”

The Lower Sixth students enjoyed a visit to Dover Castle, touring the grounds and seeing the recently opened Dynamo Exhibition, re-telling the story of Dover Castle and the Dunkirk evacuation.
