Our television screens haven't been the same since David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz retired their movie-reviewing double act, but they're back for a special Film Festival at Sea.
The much-loved duo are set to reunite in July aboard cruise ship Celebrity Reflection for an 11-night movie-themed Mediterranean cruise.
Stratton said he "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," he added.
On board, the pair will screen some of their favourite movies in the ship's Celebrity Central Theatre.
The cruise is part of a 19-night package offered by Australian company Travelrite. It also includes movie-themed sightseeing such as a visit to Rome's famous Cinecitta studios, where classic such as Ben Hur and Cleopatra were shot, along with a visit to the Tuscan village of Pienza, the setting for The English Patient, and a screening in a local cinema in Siena.
In addition, the itinerary includes seeing sightseeing tours in Rome, Florence, Nice, Monaco, Barcelona, Montserrat, Gibraltar, Granada, Cartagena and Palma de Majorca, with stays in both Rome and Siena.
The itinerary costs from $8999 per person twin share, including airfares from Australia, accommodation, food and drinks on board the ship, entertainment and more.
