Online PR News – 22-July-2010 – – Gullivers Sports Travel has chartered P & O Cruises luxury cruise liner, Pacific Dawn, to take Rugby Fans to the knock-out stages of the Rugby World Cup 2011
Gullivers Sports Travel, the UK leading sports tours operator are chartering the P&O Cruises 70,000-ton superliner Pacific Dawn to ensure 2,000 Rugby Union devotees do not miss the latter stages of the Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand.
Rugby supporters from Europe, South Africa and Australia will be given the opportunity of a lifetime to experience this unique Rugby-themed cruise. It will include New Zealand’s striking scenic attractions and will take in the excitement and drama of Rugby World Cup 2011s quarter-finals in Christchurch and semi-finals, Bronze Final and Rugby World Cup 2011 Final in Auckland. Possible teams at the quarter finals in Christchurch include Argentina, England, France, New Zealand and Scotland.
Pacific Dawn will be transformed into a Rugby themed floating clubhouse and there will be a line up of former Rugby International players to give the inside track in the Rugby forums and debates. As well as the exciting cruise itinerary, Rugby devotees will arrive in Auckland on Sunday, 23rd October 2011 for the climax of the tournament; the Rugby World Cup 2011 Final.
Pacific Dawn will be like a floating Rugby Luxury Complex; it will be far more than a floating hotel. The Pacific Dawn is home to almost 200 balcony cabins and a huge range of other top quality features.
It has nine bars and lounges, five excellent restaurants, a gym and a magnificent spa, a jogging track and a pizzeria. The Pacific Dawn is set to exceed the expectations of Rugby World Cup 2011 travellers onboard and the tour off board promises to be thrilling with New Zealand having much to prove as the host nation.
Package price starts from:
£5,295 for 20 nights with Gulliver’s Sports Travel
Gullivers Sports Travel are delighted to be able to offer this unique Rugby World Cup 2011 cruise to solve the accommodation issues which will be faced in the latter stages in New Zealand during the tournament. It is not the first time that they have chartered a ship, in 2005, they chartered Pacific Sun for the British & Irish Lions Tour in New Zealand and the travelling supporters enjoyed the camaraderie that developed as like-minded people with a shared love of Rugby travelled together.
As always Gullivers MC on tour for the past 20 years, Gareth Chilcott (former Bath, England, British & Irish Lions prop), will be taking to the high seas with the Rugby community on Pacific Dawn for the duration of the Tournament to keep all things ship shape.
Fans will be able to experience the latter part of the Rugby World Cup 2011 in an atmospheric and unique environment. As well as the onboard and off board Rugby fun, they will experience the warm hospitality of New Zealand and its distinctive culture.
