Lord Robert Winston, renowned scientist, politician, writer, TV presenter and great British speaker, will be a guest lecturer on Saga Cruises’ new ship Spirit of Discovery’s inaugural cruise, ‘A British First’.
Lord Winston said:
I had always planned to go around the British Isles but never have. All the ports will be interesting largely because, with the exception of Dover, I have not seen this aspect of the British Isles – and I think July is the right time of the year to sail. I have traversed the Panama Canal and Cape Horn, the Norwegian Fjords, smaller ports in the Mediterranean and fascinating visits to South India, China and Japan – but not the British Isles.
Lord Winston will give two talks and take part in a Q&A session with passengers during Spirit of Discovery’s inaugural cruise. He will be speaking about scientific issues which seem to engage a range of audiences from the impact and implications of artificial intelligence to the working of the human brain and human emotions.
Spirit of Discovery sails from Dover on 10 July, 2019, sailing around the British Isles with calls including the Orkney and Channel Islands, Newcastle, Belfast and Liverpool, South Queensferry for Edinburgh and Southampton.
