I've never been on a cruise before. Not a one. But when my Mum Delia asked me if I'd like to join her on the AFC trip aboard the Celebrity Eclipse, the temptation to say yes proved too strong to resist. And I'm so glad I did!

It goes hand in hand with my increasingly impressionistic work, and I've really relaxed into it. Looking forward to doing something similar at the next AFC event!
