Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 8, 2007
The Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA) just announced there is still housing available in the Caribbean from April 8 - 30 for fans who want to attend The ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 matches in Barbados, Grenada and St Lucia. They can book a room aboard the spacious Carnival Destiny, the 1300-room floating resort BTA chartered just for that purpose.
Many international visitors from the UK, US, Dubai, India and Sri Lanka have already booked the Carnival Destiny, and it's anticipated that fans from those surprising countries such as Ireland and Bangladesh who upset the favorite teams may now decide they have to come see if their teams can make it to the finals.
"With such a variety of entertainment options available during the Cricket World Cup period and major international acts taking to the stage, the island is attracting both cricket fans and non cricket fans to its shores," said Stuart Layne, President and CEO of the Barbados Tourism Authority.
"The ship provides a wonderful option to both cricket supporters and others who just want to enjoy the cruise experience and the destinations," added Joyce Landry, CEO, Landry & Kling Cruise Event Services. BTA appointed Landry & Kling to handle ship procurement, contract negotiations, itinerary and logistics planning, data-base management, on-site staffing and coordination in ports of call.
Match tickets and Carnival Destiny staterooms are only available through Official Travel Agents (OTA) listed on http://www.cricketworldcup.com official site of ICC Cricket World Cup 2007. Carnival Destiny will carry passengers from island to island so they can enjoy extended time in port and, if they wish, attend Super 8 matches in Barbados and Grenada, semi-final matches in St Lucia, and the exciting final match April 28 in Barbados.
Cricket fans and other travelers can book any of three different Carnival Destiny cruise packages. Each package includes multiple nights aboard ship and all the amenities of this popular cruise line including evening entertainment and casino gaming, plus extended time in port for the matches. All matches will be shown through special satellite feed to the ship's wide screen TV's in public areas and private staterooms.
After the final match, one additional 4-night cruise is scheduled to sail April 30 from Barbados round trip to some of the best shopping ports in the Caribbean. Space is still available, but limited.
