So far, David Cameron isn't listed as one of the speakers but many BIG names are! Sebastian Faulks, Louis de Bernières, P. J. O’Rourke, Peter Kemp, Emma Tucker, Ben Macintyre, James Naughtie, Mark Billingham, Victoria Hislop, Damian Barr, Robbie Millen, Anna Murphy, Julia Wheeler, Mariella Frostrup, Richard Rogan, and other journalists. I haven't done this type of themed cruise before but the Cunard website suggests: "perhaps join The Times journalists over breakfast to review the day’s headlines", "Meet a favorite author in the library for a glass of champagne; relax at one of our literary afternoon teas; or simply indulge in some bibliotherapy with customized advice on your reading choices from our onboard experts", "In a series of workshops with best-selling writers and experienced journalists, discover how to research your novel, practice your calligraphy, brush up on your public speaking or even write your memoir."

It will be interesting, I'm sure!

Sounds a blast. I'd love to meet Victoria Coren, [sorry just can't get used to her being called Hislop] Mariella Frostrup, and Jim Naughtie, but if you see Jim, for goodness sake don't mention Jeremy Hunt to him.
