If you are a cricket fan who loves travelling the world on cruise ships, this one is for you. Legends League Cricket (a T20 cricket league featuring players including recently retired international players) is said to have teamed with Oceanus Voyages for a cruise that will be open to fans of all ages. This one-of-a-kind vacation with cricket icons. From July to August 2023, four different Legends League Cricket Cruises will set sail, each of which will be a week-long holiday with stops in Antigua, Georgetown, Trinidad, and other locations.
The cruises will include various activities geared at both visitors and cricket fans, focusing on providing world-class entertainment and hospitality. With interactive seminars, autograph sessions, themed parties, and live match tickets, the cruise will bring an unequalled blend of enjoyment and sporting zeal. Oceanus Voyages has been providing luxury cruises around the Caribbean Islands for almost three decades.
Several travel companies offer short cricket-themed cruises, especially in the Caribbeans. For instance, a cricket cruise aboard the Crystal Esprit ship had taken clients to see an ODI match in Grenada accompanied by former England captain David Gower. In 2017, Monarch Cruise hosted a cruise experience bringing together Bollywood and cricket world personalities. Departing from Singapore, the ship travelled through Kuala Lumpur, Phuket, Penang, Colombo, and Cochin before reaching Mumbai.
Towards the end of the year, if you want a dose of cricket with your Christmas travel, you can sign up for a cricket-themed cruise planned by Ambassador Cruise Line. The five-night Christmas tour of markets itinerary from London Tilbury to Hamburg and Amsterdam will feature former players and commentators such as Graham Gooch and Geoff Miller and test match special alumni Jonathan Agnew and Henry Blofeld. You can take part in several interactive events with the cricketing personalities sharing their personal experiences and views on the game as well as holding quizzes, Q&As, book signings and a live auction.
