Cruise ships to accommodate UK football fans in Moscow

Date Posted: 08 May 2008
Cruise ships have been recruited to help accommodate some of the 50,000 expected fans travelling to Moscow for the upcoming Champions League final.

According to the Moscow Times, an enterprising cruise ship company has begun selling hundreds of berths to fans of Manchester United and Chelsea who are travelling to the Russian capital to watch their respective teams vie for the title.

The cruise ships are to be moored on the Moscow River at Vodny Stadion which is situated in the north-west of the city.

Travelling to Moscow is difficult enough and once there, rocketing hotel prices are providing an additional headache for football fans.

Steven Penney, a director at Select Travel which is organising the ships, told the newspaper: "This is purely a question of supply and demand and this is the only way to boost the capacity in Moscow at short notice."

The Champions League final takes place on May 21st 2008.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
