PRLog - Nov. 2, 2009 - Johannesburg, South Africa – Cyclone Group, world-leaders in specialised sports tours for major global sporting events, today announced their agreement as official agent for Africa to the “One Ocean Club” concept on board the luxurious Holland America Line cruise ships during the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™.

The sister ships, MS Noordam and MS Westerdam – the pride and joy of the magnificent Holland America Line fleet - are both rated among the Top-20 cruise ships in the world and are worthy recipients of the “International 5-Star Diamond Award” for quality and service.

During the period of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, Noordam and Westerdam will be sailing between the ports of Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban, serving as a prime location for accommodation, entertainment and recreation.

The One Ocean Club “cruise flotel” is a proven concept from the 2004 Athens Olympics, and for 2010, guests can look forward to being a part of one of the most secure luxury clubs & hotels in South Africa, whilst never being more than 15 minutes transfer time from port to the stadiums, a major advantage for discerning travellers.

Comments Kirsty Parry, Marketing Manager of Cyclone Group “We are proud to partner with One Ocean Club in order to provide access to exclusive, specialised sports tour solutions for our discerning clientele from across the globe. Cyclone Group guests will benefit from the complete set of infrastructure in place, including 24 hour transfers, shuttle services and VIP security. The cruise ships are a unique and upmarket addition to one of the most beautiful countries in the world during the single greatest sports event.”

Besides offering contemporary amenities and modern enhancements, combined with unsurpassed 5-star hospitality and service, each cruise ship has a world-class fitness centre, salon & spa, swimming pools, casinos, night clubs, theatre, library, four restaurants and eleven bars. Guests also have access to a state-of-the-art business centre, conference venue and meeting room facilities.

There has been enormous interest from across the African continent which is steadily gaining momentum, given recent World Cup qualifiers, including the mighty Elephants from Cote d’Ivoire, after a typical Didier Drogba equaliser saw them qualify in Malawi, and the Ghanaian Black Stars, who are aiming to build on their debut performance in Germany 2006.

The Algerian Les Fennecs (Desert Foxes), Gabon, Egyptian Pharoahs, Nigerian Super Eagles, Tunisian Carthage Eagles and the Indomitable Lions from Cameroon, are all in the hunt for a place at Africa’s first FIFA World Cup™.

Demand for accommodation is already running high and supporters who don’t want to miss out should make provisional bookings now, before the draw on 4th December, now less than five weeks away!

Cyclone Group is making more than just waves in the specialised sports tour market, following the recent announcement of their appointment by MATCH Hospitality as an authorised sales agent in Australia & New Zealand for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ Official Hospitality Programme.
