Press release   •   Mar 29, 2017 11:03 BST

Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ chance to visit the paradise island of Bermuda in June 2017, to take in the excitement and exhilaration of the 35th America’s Cup. Fred. Olsen’s 26-night ‘Bermuda & the America’s Cup’ cruise, on board 880-guest ship Boudicca, will enjoy an extended four-day stay in Bermuda – remaining overnight in St. George, and spending two nights in the capital, Hamilton.

Fred. Olsen’s ‘Bermuda & the America’s Cup’ cruise is offering guests a selection of optional, chargeable shore tours to bring them closer to the action of the America’s Cup, which combines the skills of the world’s best sailors and the world’s fastest boats, as they sail across the water at speeds close to 50mph! Guests can opt to visit the America’s Cup Village at the Royal Naval Dockyard; obtain Grandstand Tickets – located in the America’s Cup Village; or soak up the atmosphere on a Spectator Boat Experience, exclusive to Fred. Olsen guests.

To enhance guests’ onboard experience, this special cruise will also feature fascinating talks by sailing-related guest speakers Paul Covell, the renowned round-the-world sailor, and knowledgeable ocean yachtsman, Peter Roach.

Justin Stanton, Sales and Marketing Director for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said:

“Having won the coveted ‘Best for Itineraries’ accolade in Cruise Critic’s ‘UK Editors’ Picks Awards’ for the past two years, we pride ourselves on offering holidays that capture the imagination of our guests.

“The America’s Cup is a competition for one of the oldest trophies in international sport, and this year’s event promises to be full of thrills and excitement. Our themed cruise includes a four-day stay in Bermuda, and gives our guests the chance to combine this incredible sporting experience with a relaxing, rewarding holiday – the best of both worlds!”
