(JULY 2003)--A new British spy drama called "MI-5" is airing on A&E Television Network on Tuesdays at 10:00 pm ET. Like the CBS show, "The Agency," "MI-5" deals with the inner workings and operations of Britain's security intelligence service. MI5 is the service that catches spies and terrorists in the UK. The TV show is very popular in the UK and has resulted in a dramatic increase in the number of citizens wanting to join MI5.
SpyCruise is honored to have on board its upcoming QE2 cruise to London the official historian of MI5: eminent intelligence author/historian Professor Christopher Andrew. Also lecturing will be our wondrously popular SpyCruise professor Nigel West, who has written a host of books about MI5 operations, molehunts and history.
As part of the excitement of this new series, A&E Television Network is sponsoring a "Spies & Lies Sweepstakes" that you can enter (before August 8). The Grand Prize is a trip for two on board our very own SpyCruise to London on the QE2. This also includes the special week in London with all the tours and the exclusive reception at Westminster hosted by Nigel West.

Imagine getting away from it all and taking a cruise across the Atlantic to London, Great Britain on the most famous ship in the world--the Queen Elizabeth 2. While sailing to your destination, you have the unique opportunity to attend daily seminars on one of your favorite topics--spy stories--all with a British focus. You listen as intelligence authors and retired intelligence and counterintelligence officers regale you with true stories of the secret world hidden from most of us. Your fellow passengers in this exclusive group on board the ship share your same interests and you have the makings of a memorable, unique vacation you'll never forget!
Join us for SpyCruise®: British Traitors--Sex, Spies and Lies, a once-in-a-lifetime vacation sailing from New York to London as part of the exclusive SpyCruise® group on board the Cunard's Queen Elizabeth 2 ship on one of her last trans-Atlantic voyages, September 1 to 7, 2003 (with an optional stay in London Sept 7-12). If you've ever dreamed of sailing on this elegant, luxurious ship, now is your chance to do so and be a part of the exclusive, private SpyCruise® group on board. Each day while at sea our SpyCruise professors, retired spies and spycatchers as well as renowned British intelligence historians and authors Christopher Andrew and Nigel West will talk about espionage related to our cruise theme, "British Traitors: Sex, Spies and Lies".
In the ship's lounges each night after dinner, you'll be able to meet with our SpyCruise® professors to ask them more about their lectures or about their spy careers and experiences.
Once we arrive at the British shore at Southampton, you'll have the option of staying on to explore London including tours of The Tower of London, Westminster, Buckingham Palace (only open in Aug and Sept), the London Eye Ferris Wheel, Imperial War Museum and more!
