Success Recruit has had yet another incredible year and what better way to end 2016 than experiencing an overnight stay with one of the Cruise & Maritime Voyages ‘The Magellan’ located on Tilbury Docks.
On Friday 9th December, Sam, Vicki, Gabriella, Josh, Chloe, Danielle and I (Becky) along with special guests David Sargant from Funnel Leader and Hugo Heij from Fluid Business Coaching, all set off to celebrate the fantastic year the team have had and experienced a night together on the stunning 726ft cruise ship.
After arriving with our luggage in tow, we were soon shown to our cabins, each by an individual host, the service throughout the evening was amazing and we definitely felt like superstars!! We couldn’t wait to explore the ship, it was HUGE! It was a surreal but exciting experience, walking through the ship walking past multiple bars (that we planned to visit later), a casino, shops, a massage parlour we couldn’t believe what was inside.
After exploring the cruise ship and after visiting many bars and drinking lots of Prosecco, we were shortly escorted into the stunning Kensington Restaurant to begin our 5-course meal!
The evening was also to celebrate and raise money for a great cause the children’s Havens Hospice! This is a great charity and it was very moving to hear stories of families who have been supported by the hospice, so we all dug deep and bought raffle ticket after raffle ticket to help show our support!
The food was going down a treat, along with a few too many bottles of house wine! – What more could we ask for?
As we danced through the night until the early hours of the morning as soon as we saw the sun rise in the distance we knew it was time to head back to our cabins! Time certainly does fly by when you’re having fun!
It was an amazing experience which we all thoroughly enjoyed and it gave us yet another opportunity to bond as a team.
So Success Recruit say ‘Bon Voyage’ to an amazing 2016 and are excited for the challenges that 2017 will have instore!
