What is a sports cruise?


A sports cruise is a voyage that sails passengers to world-famous sporting events around the world.

There are many reasons to book a sports cruise. You can experience unforgettable sports competitions alongside superb sailings on your favourite cruise ship. What’s more, you can immerse yourself in the exhilarating atmosphere around you while feeding off the high-level energy of the event you’re witnessing.


Where can you sail on a sports cruise?

Not much can beat the spectacle of Formula One. With man and machine in symbiosis, it’s the ultimate sporting challenge in which drivers pit their wits against one another at speeds of up to 200mph. Television simply cannot capture the essence of the races; you need to be there to experience the dizzying speeds, deafening noise and intoxicating scent of high octane fuel for yourself. It’s a white-knuckle ride for drivers and spectators alike as sleek racing cars tussle for supremacy in a powerful testament to excellence in engineering.

You might prefer to soak up this spectacle in the millionaire’s playground of Monaco - a paradise enclave on the French Riviera home to a stunning array of designer boutiques and world-class restaurants. Alternatively, your cruise could take you to Abu Dhabi, a bustling city set on an island in the glorious Persian Gulf. With its stunning modern facilities, elegant landscaping and year-round sunshine, this sophisticated metropolis is a mecca for expatriates and travellers around the world. It’s the perfect setting to take in the larger-than-life spectacle of Formula One - the ultimate display of raw power amid the ultimate display of opulence and wealth.

For something more tranquil, you can watch America’s Cup from the finest vantage point. Locked in silent combat, two gleaming white yachts challenge one another for the supremacy of the seas, soaring through the ocean like two gliding birds. You don’t have to be a sailor yourself to appreciate this spectacle. You’ll marvel at the skill of the crews - a blur of motion as they do whatever it takes to give themselves the edge - and the peerless skill of the yacht’s designers. You’ll share in every moment of the excitement as, by nip and tuck, fortunes change and one crew and vessel finally asserts its dominance over the other.
