Ambassador Cruise Line announces Sally Gunnell OBE as 'Ambience' godmother

The former Team GB athlete will rename the cruise line's first ship at a ceremony at London Tilbury on April 19, 2022.

CEO Christian Verhounig said: “We’re incredibly proud to have Sally as our first ship’s godmother. She is a wonderful advocate for the 50-plus market and her ambitious drive and dedication to achievement echoes Ambassador’s determination for expansion.

"We cannot wait to welcome Sally onboard Ambience and celebrate this monumental milestone in Ambassador’s journey so far. We are certain that our guests, crew and staff will feel as honoured as I am in having Sally as our first godmother and being part of the Ambassador family."

Sally Gunnell said, “I’m delighted to be godmother to Ambience, Ambassador Cruise Line’s first ship. I’ve a fondness for Ambassador’s homeport London Tilbury being in Essex, the county I was born and grew up in.

"The dedication from the off demonstrates that Ambassador is a responsible cruise line and one that I’m extremely honoured to be working with."

Ambience, a 1,400-capacity ship, will enter service on April 20, 2022 with a maiden voyage to Hamburg, followed by a further 31 voyages calling at over 90 different ports.
