Survey: Blair most unpopular cruise companion

Prime Minister Tony Blair has been voted the most unpopular cruise holiday companion, according to a UK poll by Royal Caribbean International.
The survey found respondents reckoned the Labour leader was just too ‘annoying’’ to pull up a sun lounger next to.

London Mayor Ken Livingstone was the next most unpopular cruise companion in a survey of 2,000 people.

Other unpopular people, who those polled would not be keen to see on board ship, included Big Brother star Jade Goody, film director Michael Winner, Victoria Beckham and actor Jude Law.

TV presenter Jonathan Ross was voted the most popular cruise companion, followed by another television presenter Lorraine Kelly and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.

While Ross was the women’s favourite, actress and TV presenter Kelly Brook got the highest male vote.


The poll was conducted to celebrate the UK arrival later this month of Royal Caribbean’s 160,000-tonne Freedom of the Seas - the world’s largest cruise ship.
