A Wimbledon Cruise Package For Only $25,299
Do you love cruises and Wimbledon so much that even as the economy continues to tank, you have no qualms about plunking down $25,000 for an extravagant tennis-themed cruise? If this is you, then a new Crystal Cruises packages was made with your kind in mind. (Also, can you pay for our trip too?)
Their latest cruise package extends your vacation with tickets to Wimbledon at the conclusion of its London-Stockholm trip. If you ever wanted to whisper sweet nothings in Rafael Nadal's ear, you probably won't get any closer than this.
After the 11-day cruise, which includes a trip to the Tennis Hall of Fame in Bastad, Sweden, passengers will be flown business class to London, where they'll be put up at the newly renovated Savoy Hotel. They'll get tickets to the women's and men's singles semifinals and finals at Center Court and admission into Fairway Village, where VIPs take their afternoon tea after the matches.
But before you pack your decorous sun-brimmed hat, you should be aware that this sporting sidebar costs more than the cruise itself -- and no, you can't just buy the post-cruise package and show up in Sweden. Cruise packages start at $4,995, but the Wimbledon package will set you back a cool $25,299. So how badly do you want to party with a Williams sister?
