Rugby Union fans rejoice! Celebrity Cruises has announced it will air the next six weeks of the Rugby World Cup across its fleet worldwide, so fans won’t miss a second of all the action live from England.
As teams battle it out for the William Webb Ellis Cup, Australian passengers will have the opportunity to enjoy the highly anticipated preliminary finals, semi-finals and grand final onboard Celebrity Solstice, famous for her half-acre of lawn, as she makes her way to Australia from Honolulu and kicks off her local cruise season on October 21, 2015.
“We are really excited to be airing one of the most popular sporting events in the world onboard our Celebrity Cruises ships. The details make the biggest difference on Celebrity Cruises; the champagne is finer, the balconies are roomier and now the experience of watching the Rugby World Cup will be livelier as guests enjoy the game with other passionate footy fans in Celebrity’s onboard theatre, Celebrity Central, as well as in the Casino Bar,” said Adam Armstrong, Commercial Director Celebrity Cruises Australia.
“Celebrity Solstice fans will also be treated to an impressive screening of the grand final in her grand theatre that seats over 1,400 passengers. Special food buffets will be set up for each game so fans can grab a snack without missing any action. And for those who want to watch the game privately, games will also air in staterooms,” he said.
Celebrity Solstice will offer 16 sailings during the 2015/2016 summer season with a range of eight to 18-night Australian, New Zealand and South Pacific cruises. The ship is Australia’s youngest cruise ship and was awarded the Australian travel industry’s highest accolade – best domestic cruise ship at the recent NTIA awards. With new pricing structure: Go Big, Go Better, Go Best, guests have more freedom to choose the inclusions that suit them best, including a Classic Beverage Package, unlimited internet, pre-paid gratuities and/or USD$150 in onboard credit.
