October 14, 2009 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

One Ocean Club, cruise ships for FIFA World CupHeading to South Africa for the 2010 FIFA World Cup, arguably the biggest sporting event of the century? We just got wind about some unique accommodations for the tournament's spectators. This is the first time in history that the World Cup is hosted by an African nation, and over a billion people will be tuning in. Stay with One Ocean Club and you'll bed down in a Holland America luxury cruise liner playing host to guests from all over the world. Chartered by One Ocean Club (which managed the Official German Ship AIDAaura moored in Piraeus harbour during the 2004 Olympic Summer Games), the ships will act as floating hotels and hubs for business, entertainment, and recreation. Parked in prime locations close to the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa venues in Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, the ships will also offer transfers to all the other venues. Choose from a slew of different room types-- from Penthouse Suites to Inside Cabins-- and enjoy a lavish buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. Plus, you'll get a late-night dinner on all match days. Additional perks include a state-of-the-art high performance center, fitness facilities, full-service spa and hydropool, the Lido Pool with sliding roof, and extensive meeting/events areas for private functions. And like a fine five-star hotel, the ships will have 24/7 concierge service to arrange excursions to local attractions and take care of all your needs.
