Floating Cruise Hotel Hosts Ireland's Greatest Football Fest

KOLOBRZEG, POLAND--(Marketwire - May 21, 2012) - Sea spray and scissor-kicks. Enjoy EURO 2012's greatest football fest in Gdansk-New Port, when POLFERRIES' floating cruise hotel anchors up only three kilometres from Arena Gdansk stadium. With 800 berths reserved for football fans and a clear sight to the stadium, the ferry hotel will create the perfect setting for both warm-up and football afterpartying. In other words, get the full EURO 2012 vibe from the seashore.

When the first blow of the whistle sounds, the cruise liner and ferry hotel M/F Scandinavia moors at Gdansk-New Port with more than 800 eager football fans onboard. For more than four days POLFERRIES and M/F Scandinavia will host the greatest floating football fest for fans from all over Europe. And with the stadium almost within a goal kicks distance, two restaurants, two bars, several shops and a café onboard, the scene is set for a perfect football experience.

"EURO 2012 is the greatest football event of the year, and fans gathering in Poland from all over Europe has every reason to celebrate the magnificent sports event. And with everything at one place -- hotel, restaurants, cafés etc -- visiting fans can lay back and relax and concentrate on the game and the whole experience," says Aneta Wencel, Shipping Policy Division Director at POLFERRIES says.

The ferry anchors up from the 13th to the 15th of June and again from the 18th to the 19th during the preliminary matches in Group C, which are played in Gdansk. And with Ireland, Spain, Croatia and Italy all in Group C, fans visiting Gdansk stadium are in for some world-class football. Spain is already considered one of the favourites to the EURO 2012 title, while the team ranks as no. 1 at FIFA's world ranking. But even though both Ireland and Croatia are considered underdogs, no doubt the two teams will fight to final whistle to outwit the Spaniards and save a seat at the quarterfinals.

"The preliminary matches in Gdansk will no doubt be filled with action, excitement and world-class football. With more than 800 enthusiastic fans onboard we expect to host extraordinary football fest," Aneta Wencel says.

Berth cabins for the 13th to the 15th of June (Spain-Ireland), two nights including breakfast, cost from 156 EUR parking included. Berth cabins for 18th to the 19th of June (Croatia-Spain), one night including breakfast, cost from 52 EUR parking included. Berth cabins are booked online at
