As reported in British media, legendary footballer and manager Kenny Dalglish was enjoying a holiday aboard Silver Wind, when he received the call to confirm his role as the new manager of Liverpool Football Club.
He was sailing as a celebrity guest speaker on a 7-day voyage from Dubai, along with 290 other guests who had enjoyed their opportunity to meet Mr Dalglish and hear, first hand, stories of his epic career. The occasion was made all the more exciting as he had to make hasty plans to disembark Silver Wind slightly early, in Bahrain, to ensure he arrived back in the UK in time for Liverpool's match against Manchester United yesterday.
Trudy Redfern, Silversea's managing director (UK and Ireland), who was also aboard Silver Wind as events unfolded, said "It's been a major coup and a pleasure to have someone of Kenny's calibre as part of Silversea's enrichment programme. The guests have been enamoured with his warm personality and amazing achievements. We wish him well in his new role and look forward to welcoming him back to Silversea in the near future."
