Hands down, the luxurious, all-inclusive, Regent Seven Seas cruise ships are the best we have ever sailed on; so in keeping with their brand, I am creating a blog that will bring my followers a unique, travel experience, seen through my eyes.
My vision always includes people. I'm a portrait artist. When others are looking at buildings, I am looking at faces. I will be drawing portraits of the people I see in Turkey and the Middle East as well as those I meet on board the Voyager. I'm ready! Two high-quality sketch pads are packed with plenty of ball point pens and, for bravado, no erasers!
I hope they speak to you, like they do to me. Here's an example of what you might expect to see on this journey....
The portraits won't be for sale, but they will be available. I will happily arrange 100% donations to the Crew Fund in exchange for any drawing someone might wish to take home with them.
If you have ever sailed on a "no-tipping" Regent ship, you know that the crew, and the service they provide to every guest, is exemplary. The Crew Fund covers all sorts of needs, including emergency airfare home, perks in crew quarters and well-deserved crew parties. From the people who serve us meals and clean our suites to the crew we never see, who wash linens, prepare our food and keep us afloat, this is a small gesture to express gratitude for their care.
