One of the benefits of cruising is the opportunity to leave the stresses of daily life behind. At sea, you can relax and unwind, far removed from the demands of work and your usual fast-paced routine.

But what if there’s a big game with your favorite sports team right in the middle of your cruise? You love the opportunity to get away, but it sure would be nice if you could at least see that one big game – or even get the chance to watch the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games on your vacation.

ESPN has an answer for sports fans.
