Ever wanted to combine a cruise and major sporting event? Well on Fred. Olsen’s ‘Sun, Sea & Monaco Grand Prix’ cruise, you can do just that. On the cruise, which departs on 21st May 2016 from Dover on Black Watch, guests can experience the jewel in Formula 1’s crown and the race that every driver wants to win – the Monaco Grand Prix.
On a tour from Nice, guests can experience the noise, speed and atmosphere as the world’s best racing stars, including Britain’s own Lewis Hamilton, charge through the narrow, winding streets of the glamorous Mediterranean principality.
Fred. Olsen are offering guests a choice of two special tours packages for the Monaco Grand Prix, each offering a spectacular view of the big race:
Grandstand K stretches from Tabac to the Swimming Pool section, and tickets for the Upper section guarantee a great view of this part of the circuit, as well as a view up to the Tunnel Exit.
Grandstand T is located in Monaco Harbour. With a large seating capacity, it enjoys a view of the straight section that follows the Swimming Pool Complex. Its location in front of the pits places guests at a key part of the track, and the big screen opposite follows the action on other parts of the circuit.
Prices for this package start from £2,588 per person, and include:
- Ocean View Cabin
- Coach transfers from Nice to Monaco
- Escort to and from the coach parking spot to the Grand Prix entrance gates
- Race day tickets in your choice of Grandstand
- A picnic lunch
There are also ‘Private Terrace’ and ‘General Admission’ packages available to book.
I must say that I would love to do something like this although I’m not sure if I am neccesarily a typical Fred Olsen customer. What do you think? Would you be tempted to try a new cruise line in order to experience an event like a Grand Prix? Or are you a Fred Olsen fan already? Let me know your thoughts.
