Football lovers from all walks of life are trooping to the Ghana International Trade Fair, La-based office of the Akwaaba Cruise, to register for the Brazil 2014 World Cup tournament.
Officials of the Akwaaba Cruises, a water transport giant, which recently launched a luxury cruise package for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Brazil, said they were overwhelmed by the number of people who showed interest.
The Corporate affairs Manager of Akwaaba Cruises, Jane Pentland told The Chronicle that; “We just launched the project some few weeks ago but our phones are always inundated with calls concerning the trip to Brazil”.
We are making progress towards getting the number of travelers for the 150 cruiser footer, which is expected to dock at the Tema Harbour on June 5, and will sail to Brazil from June 8 to June 15 after 2,200 nautical miles, she added.
Madam Pentland stated: “Akwaaba Cruises offers soccer fans a life-time experience to travel in luxury to the distant South American country on water in just seven days”.
She further explained: “During the cruise we have entertainment and activities planned to help you enjoy the voyage.
Natal is the capital and largest city of Rio Grande state in Brazil, you will have the day to get off the ship and stretch your legs and explore this popular tourist destination, perhaps soak up the sun on one of the many fantastic beaches or explore the sights and the nightlife of the local town”.
For prospective travelers to be part of the above luxuries and more, they need to pay prices starting at GH¢ 28,000 for the all inclusive package-accommodation, three-square meals, and internal transportation.
Besides, match tickets for the group games, and visa application processing. If the Black Stars make it through the group stages, Akwaaba Cruises will endeavor to source tickets and arrange the logistics of following the Black Stars to the next round.
Travelers would be checked-in their rooms after they have satisfied all immigration requirements upon boarding the ship. Everyone is eligible to travel with the Akwaaba Cruises provided you have a national passport, Madam Pentland assured.
The ship is a handsome medium sized cruise vessel boasting 400 cabins, 277 exterior and 123 interior. Accommodation is graded depending of the size, facilities and location, with 12 executive suites, 31 junior suites and 234 ocean view staterooms.
