Kingsbury couple scoops cruise ship prize
Retired teachers treated to exclusive VIP trip
A couple from Kingsbury have been treated to an exclusive VIP trip on a cruise ship.
Retired teachers, Stephen and Sally Wells, of Valley Drive, were among the first ever passengers on board Viking River Cruises’ newest vessel, the Viking Prestige, which sailed its first voyage last week.
The married couple sailed from Cologne on June 28 arriving in Amsterdam the next morning where they toured the city. Mr Wells, 59, said: “As a retired physics teacher I was interested in the technicalities of the boat and how it was structured.
“This is one of the very few times we have ever won something. I was surprised. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it was great to be classed as VIPs.”
