MSC Cruises has announced that the Summer Olympic Games will be broadcasted live across the firm’s fleet of ships this summer.
There is just over a month to go until the Games begin in London on July 27th and with sports fans across the country eager to tune in to catch some of our medal hopefuls in action.
While some holidaymakers may have feared they would miss out on events, given that the competition runs through the height of summer until August 12th, fortunately for those on a voyage with MSC Cruises over that period they need not.
That is because the firm is set to broadcast all 2,000 hours of live Olympics coverage, via satellite, in all public areas and passenger accommodations on their vessels.
This means holidaymakers can look forward to their cruise and still enjoy one of the 29 different sports on offer at the event.
The on board entertainment will also be sport-themed, with a special parade and various pool-based races and football juggling competitions planned.
In addition to these, viewers will be able to bet on the outcome of events and enjoy a range of sporting activities like ping-pong and football, which will offer actual medals to the winners.
To cap it all off, these cruises will also offer passengers the chance to enjoy a slice of Olympic cake, which is styled to depict the iconic rings of the Olympics symbol.
