For summer 2017, Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines is offering guests the chance to experience the America's Cup yacht race during Boudicca's 26-night 'Azores & the America's Cup' cruise.

Departing from Liverpool on June 9, 2017 the holiday has been specially crafted for guests to be able to enjoy all the action of the 35th America's Cup, which will be taking place in Hamilton, Bermuda on June 24-25, where Boudicca will be spending three nights.

The longer voyage also offers a range of destinations steeped in history such as the Portuguese old towns of Oporto and Funchal and the varied landscapes of the Azores Archipelago.

Nathan Philpot, sales and marketing director for the cruise line, said: “We are renowned for giving our guests a very different kind of cruise experience, tailoring our itineraries to celebrate great events around the world. In 2017, our special 'America's Cup' cruise is bound to appeal to any sailing fan with a taste for adventure, and what's more, lucky spectators will get to see Olympic Gold medal winner Sir Ben Ainslie in action, hoping to succeed in finally bringing the America's Cup home to British waters for the first time in over 160 years.”

Prices for the cruise start from £2,999 per person, based on two adults sharing a twin inside cabin. It includes accommodation, all meals and entertainment on board, plus port dues.

The cruise is also included in the company’s 'Turn of Year' campaign, where guests can choose between the offers of 'Three Cruises for the Price of Two' or 'Free Tips & Tipples' when booked before March 2.
