Great New Year Volvo Ocean Race travel packages

Book now one of the great holiday packages for the emirate’s New Year hosting of the Volvo Ocean Race 2011/12 fleet – the awesome six-strong armada of state-of-the-art Volvo 70 ocean yachts which will contest the gruelling 39,000 nautical mile round-the-world event.
The packages, being run by ‘Volvo Ocean Race Abu Dhabi Travel Services’ and developed in conjunction with the stopover’s travel partner, Hala Abu Dhabi, are centred on event highlights from the Destination Village opening this New Year’s Eve. These include: 

  • New Year’s Eve Party @ Volvo Ocean Race Abu Dhabi Stopover: December 31, 2011  
  • Arrival ceremony of Volvo Ocean Race yachts: January 1-2, 2012 (approx) 
  • Pro-Am Race: January 12, 2012
  • In-Port Race: January 13, 2012
  • Departure ceremony of Volvo Ocean Race yachts: January 14, 2012

A ‘New Year’s Eve Spectacular’ package includes four-nights accommodation with breakfast, airport meet & greet and premium limousine transport as well as transfers to the Volvo Ocean Race Destination Village for the New Year’s Eve headline concert, with pre and post concert VIP hospitality, as well as a stunning sunset dhow cruise.
In addition to four-nights accommodation with breakfast, airport meet & greet and premium limousine transport, as well as daily transport to and from the Destination Village, visitors can also get into the thick of the action in style - on and off the water - with hospitality access for the pro-am, in-port race and race restart, on the 12th, 13th and 14th January 2012 respectively. The first 100 to book will also receive priority VIP access to the ‘Azzam Lounge’ – the dedicated Abu Dhabi hospitality pavilion.
Both packages also offer guests the ‘Volvo Ocean Race – Active Abu Dhabi’ card, which gives holders exclusive city attraction offers across the city, as well as a commemorative gift from the Abu Dhabi stopover.
The package prices, excluding flights and based on twin room sharing, start from US$1,715 (AED6,255) for the New Year’s Eve Spectacular, and US$2,140 (AED7,815) for the Volvo Ocean Race Experience. Additional room nights can be arranged. All can be booked via the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing official website.
