Britain Today on Iona Cruise: Your Connection to Home

by Paul Hadley

A voyage across the vast expanses of the sea, aboard the majestic Iona Cruiseship, is an unparalleled experience. While the cruise offers an escape from the daily hustle, many of us still feel the pull of home and the happenings there. Understanding this need to stay connected, the Iona Cruise introduces “Britain Today”, a concise leaflet-style newspaper that ensures you’re not completely adrift from the current events back in the UK.

What is Britain Today?

Nestled in the heart of the Iona Cruise, within the grand atrium, you’ll find a coffee stop that offers more than just a refreshing brew. Here, “Britain Today” awaits – a unique publication designed exclusively for the Iona’s guests. A short, four-page leaflet, it’s your daily digest of the UK, delivering news from home straight to your hands.
