Princess Cruises will broadcast Wimbledon coverage on its ships during this summer’s championship, while also putting on tennis-themed activities.
The company’s three ships sailing out of Southampton – Sky Princess, Regal Princess, and Island Princess – will also show matches on the top-deck screen.
Wimbledon will take place between July 4 – July 17.
“With Wimbledon on the horizon, we’re serving up everything the championship has to offer from the comfort of our ships. Whether guests simply want to relax and enjoy a match, or channel their inner Andy Murray and take part in our tennis-themed challenges, we’re confident our activities will prove a smash,” said Hayley Moore, marketing director Princess Cruises UK & Europe. “They can even kick back and enjoy a refreshing top-deck glass of Pimms or two, in honour of Wimbledon’s most popular courtside drink.
“And our limited time onboard spend offer will allow guests’ budgets to go even further on their next holiday, covering a host of onboard extras, from speciality dining to spa treatments to shore excursions.”
Guests can also take part in tennis-themed trivia competitions and gameshows across all ships, while onboard paddle tennis tournaments will be arranged for longer voyages. Istrawberries and whipped cream will be served onboard as well as Pimms.
