:: David and Margaret reunite for 2018 Film Festival at Sea

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

After nearly three decades of co-hosting The Movie Show on SBS and At The Movies on the ABC, David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz return for a unique reunion…on the Mediterranean Sea! On a 12-day cruise through Italy and the Mediterranean, guests will be able to experience first-hand the chemistry of the dynamic duo, as they screen and comment on some of their favourite movies, on board the stunning luxury cruise ship Celebrity Reflection. The cruise occurs from July 6-25, 2018.

Many Australians will find it difficult to remember a time without Margaret and David on television. Famous for their warmth, familiarity and witty banter, they have a thorough knowledge of film like no other. Throughout their years appearing in our lounge rooms, their hope has always been to engage audiences with the art of cinema, and now they are bringing this love to a once in a lifetime holiday experience.

“We are really looking forward to working together again,” said Margaret. “We are especially excited to share insights on some of our favourite movies with our guests in such a beautiful setting.”

“I can't wait to reunite with my old sparring partner. I’m sure we’ll be bringing back some of our good-natured disagreements on board the Film Festival at Sea cruise,” said David.

Passengers of the Film Festival at Sea will experience the famous sights of Rome, Florence, Nice, Granada, Palma de Majorca, Gibraltar, Siena and more. The cruise also includes a visit to the famous Cincecitta Film studios outside Rome where Ben Hur and Federico Fellini’s films were shot, along with many more. Guests will also visit the locations of many famous films in Tuscany including The English Patient.

While on board, passengers can enjoy some of David and Margaret’s favourite films screened in the grand and luxurious Celebrity Central Theatre, as well as 10 five-star restaurants with a variety of cuisines, including Murano, a classic French restaurant; Tuscan Grille; Silk Harvest Asian restaurant, and Qsine, a dining venue with a unique and playful approach to familiar dishes from around the world. In addition to this, guests have access to eight fantastic bars, spectacular vistas and 85 staterooms with panoramic balcony views.

The Celebrity Reflection is at the forefront of cruising luxury.
