Floating Hotel: Unusual Way to Use a Cruise Ship. Part 1

Dear cruise lovers! We decided to talk about an unusual way to use a cruise ship, and here’s why.
Last week, JTB Corporation, the largest travel agency in Japan, announced that the Princess Cruises’ representative, Sun Princess, would be chartered as a floating hotel for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Previously it became known that MSC Cruises’ MSC Lirica also will house guests of this sports event.
We believe several more cruise liners will become ships hotels in Tokyo in 2020.
By the way, Qatar already expressed intention to use cruise ships to accommodate visitors during the World Cup tournament in 2022.
