Ambassador Cruise Line (Logo)Ambassador Cruise Line has announced that guests sailing on its German Christmas Markets itinerary can look forward to enjoying the company of some of the sport’s most popular pundits, players and presenters while onboard, thanks to the premium value, no-fly cruise line’s partnership with Essex County Cricket Club.

Departing London Tilbury on Sunday 10 December 2023, the five-night ‘Cricketing Legends’ themed German Christmas Markets cruise will bring guests up close and personal with two legendary internationals, two of cricket’s greatest-ever commentators and one of sport’s leading broadcasters.

Ambassador’s Cricketing Legends cruise will feature former Essex and England captain, Graham Gooch OBE, and former Derbyshire, Essex and England all-rounder Geoff Miller OBE, followed-on by Test Match Special alumni and famed raconteurs Jonathan Agnew MBE and Henry Blofeld OBE. The celebrated Broadcaster Garry Richardson will act as Master of Ceremonies throughout the sailing.

A number of interactive events will be held during the five-day sailing, with the stars of the crease and commentary box set to share their personal experiences and views on the game as well as hold quizzes, Q&As, book signings and a live auction. In addition, Garry Richardson – who has presented Radio 4’s prestigious Today programme for more than 41 years – will host a very special event where he will share anecdotes from a lifetime in journalism including interviewing sports stars such as David Beckham, Serena Williams and Alex Ferguson as well as political heavyweights in Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela.

There will also be the opportunity for guests to meet and greet Goochie, Dusty, Aggers, Blowers and Garry (AKA ‘Mr Sport’) over pre-dinner drinks during the cruise. Some lucky guests will also get the chance to enjoy Ambience’s outstanding cuisine when dining with these cricketing legends – a truly unique and memorable experience!

The German Christmas Markets sailing onboard Ambience will call into Hamburg, Germany, and Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
