This means that the whole of the global market will be coming to Düsseldorf, to provide an exciting insight into the entire water sports world for the nine-day exhibition located in 16 different halls.

Day OneThursday 24th January 2019
Join your tour coach mid-afternoon departure for a short journey to Hull to board one of P&O’s Supper Ferries from Hull to Rotterdam. Settle in to your en-suite cabin before exploring the ship, enjoy a delicious hot meal in The Kitchen restaurant or a fine dining experience in The Brasserie restaurant, complete with fantastic sea views! Later explore the Show Lounge where live bands, singers and cabaret perform throughout the evening. If you’ve got dancing feet, you can party all night long in the disco or just relax and enjoy the show. Enjoy a drink with friends as you cross the sea in the fun and friendly bars and if you’re feeling lucky, why not try your hand in the onboard casino! For a more laid-back atmosphere, relax and listen to familiar tunes from the onboard pianist, or you could spend the evening watching the latest films in the onboard cinema.
