#cruiseliner – As majestic as she might be, the five–masted cruise liner, Club Med 2 left Dublin Port yesterday evening, and just like local craft she dwarfed, she was unable to sail away, as there was no wind on Dublin Bay.
Instead, the 637–foot long the Club Med 2, normally associated with the splendours of the Mediterranean Sea during the summer months, slipped away past the Baily lighthouse under engine.
As previously reported in our cruiseliner section of Afloat.ie, a crew of 200 cater for the floating resorts 439 passengers who can indulge in a stress-free atmosphere thanks to two swimming pools and fitness rooms. Passengers can also enjoy sporting pursuits ranging from sailing, snorkelling, water-ski and windsurfing which are provided from the 'nautical hall' of the vessel. Guests are accommodated in 175 cabins and 11 suites.
A one-person, seven-night cruise aboard the Club Med 2 costs $1,894 for an all-inclusive 'vacation experience' (in Australia), according to the Huffington Post.
