Our local sports networks, ESPN and all their affiliates, are heavily promoting the Cup. But in all honesty, I don't know of anyone here in the US who will be rabidly following the contests. I know I don't plan on watching one minute of it as "football" holds absolutely no interest for me. And on a cruise ship, I hardly watch TV at all, so this would not be a priority for me on a cruise. As an American football person, I don't even watch the Super Bowl if I'm on a cruise. Too many other things to do.
My brother-in-law and I will certainly be watching the final when we sail on Golden Princess in July. The final will be on in the morning when we are having a sea day.
People who don't care about the World Cup can always go off and do their own thing. The ships are big enough and provide more alternative entertainment than I can imagine. I don't understand why people who don't watch feel the need to tell us that they are not watching it.
As a passenger on Ocean Princess June 25 to July 13, I confess I was a little concerned that I may not see the games on TV. Your article specifically mentions Princess as one of the lines who will be showing the games. Great!
I planned to (and will still) take my shortwave portable just in case!
Maybe I could organize a pool round the pool!
