Santa Clarita, CA (PRWEB) April 25, 2011
Princess Cruises today revealed a special ANZAC Day post for “Essential Experience #28” on its blog, “50 Essential Experiences: The Travel Bucket List.” This week Osvaldo Tinacci, hotel general manager of Dawn Princess, recalls his experience planning a special memorial service for the ship’s visit to ANZAC Cove off the coast of the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey, and the importance of this former battleground for his passengers from Australia and New Zealand.
He writes: “As the choir sang “Amazing Grace,” I was able to take a look at the shoreline off the side of the ship. I was struck by how quiet a place it is now, so peaceful. I found myself contemplating the futility of war, saddened at the number of lives lost in this very place. How strange it must have been for these soldiers, so far from their homeland.” read more
