Darts gods Keith Deller and Eric Bristow will step up to the oche with P&O Ferries to re-kindle a rivalry that saw the former World champions dominate darts for more than a decade.
It was in 1980 that 'The Crafty Cockney' Bristow won his first of four World titles, with a brash confidence that delighted fans and rattled opponents out of their doubles.
But in 1983 baby-faced Deller caused a sensation, beating Bristow by six sets to five to become the youngest World Champion in the history of the game. Nicknamed 'The Milky Bar Kid' because he turned to the dairy drink after taking the title, Deller holds the record for the fastest game ever, hitting 301 in just 97 seconds.
The pair will be the star turn for a special Darts Challenge mini cruise on board the cruise ferry Pride of Bilbao sailing from Portsmouth for Bilbao on the evening of Saturday 17 October. The itinerary for the three-night mini cruise gives time for a shore excursion in Spain, with popular options including the Guggenheim gallery, the old city of Bilbao, and the fishing village of Castro Urdiales. And facilities on board the ferries to Spain include cinemas, shops, bars, restaurants and live shows.
