Cindy won the contest with CELTIC but her idea of PUFFIN for Alaska sparked the thought it would be great for the UK cruise. We are visiting an island just covered with puffins so the name is really appropriate. "Fortunate visitors view the magnificent array of birds, especially the great puffins that breed on the islands plateau. One can sit within just a few feet away without disturbing the avian ambassador’s peace" If there was ever a time to use the acronym PUFFIN this is it!

So Cindy won Celtic and suggested Puffin for Alaska. So I contacted Cindy to see if she would like to change the name of the UK cruise to Puffin. Everyone loves Puffins and I am really excited about making a Puffin pin. She was very open to my suggestion and came up with this perfect acronym.

Perfectly Unique Feathered Friends in Nature.

So I am making and "executive decision" to rename Celtic to Puffin. I think all the people on that cruise will like the Puffin pin better!

Actually I was thinking that the winner of the contests should receive a pin as a prize as well as a teapot. I will start that with 2018 and will send the pins to the winners at the end of the year. So I will have all the pins made by then - easier than trying to send them all one by one.

Dublin to London Segment

LUNGA
Friday 24 May
Arrive: 2:30 PM, Depart 8:00 PM

The stunning Isle of Lunga is the largest island in the Treshnish archipelago. With volcanic origin the isle was populated until the 19th Century, and remains of black houses can be seen around this magnificent coastal jewel. Abundant plant life and exotic birdlife are now the main inhabitants of the area. Fortunate visitors view the magnificent array of birds, especially the great puffins that breed on the islands plateau. One can sit within just a few feet away without disturbing the avian ambassador’s peace.


On the Amsterdam to Dublin there is another place called SKOMER ISLAND that also has a lot of puffins but I do not think you can get as close to them as at Lunga.

The puffins are around the UK in many places so I think we could see them at different spots on both legs.
