While the England team deals with Qatar’s crazy rules during the World Cup, their wives and girlfriends are going to be having the sickest holiday ever aboard a ridiculous billion dollar cruise ship called ‘The Floating Palace’.
Why wouldn’t they just stay in a luxury hotel in Qatar, you ask? Well, you’re basically not allowed to have any fun in Qatar. WAGs have been told they are not above the average tourist and football fan and are being asked to follow the same insane rules as everyone rules:
Dressing modestly in public, abstaining from drinking alcohol or packing on the PDA, swearing, playing music, singing, shouting, or acting ‘inappropriately’ during the call to prayer are all thought to have been included on the agenda. In Qatar, littering is illegal – with a £6,000 fine and a year in jail – and taking selfies outside government buildings could lead to police action, they were reportedly warned. (via MailOnline)
By chartering this billion dollar cruise ship, the WAGs will be able to get as turned up as they want while watching their men p-ss around on the pitch for a bit before inevitably being knocked out of the tournament prematurely.
Among the WAGS on tour are Aaron Ramsdale’s fiancée Georgina Irwin:
Harry Maguire’s wife Fern:
Eric Dier’s girlfriend Anna Modler:
Jack Grealish’s girlfriend Sasha Attwood:
So what’s so great about this luxury £1billion cruise line, which usually costs £2,434.80 per room for nine nights? Oh well it has 30 bars and restaurants, 14 jacuzzis, six swimming pools, a cinema, a jazz speakeasy, a casino, a spa snow room, the world’s tallest slide on any ship, crystal staircases, basketball courts, bumper cars and a roller disco rink. So it sounds like they’ll be kept well entertained between matches (if they even remember to watch them with all the fun they’re having).
Here are some more pics of the interior:
Sadly for the lads, they won’t be allowed on the ship at all because Gareth Southgate doesn’t want anyone catching Covid and f—ing up the whole tournament:
But while the wives and girlfriends of the football stars will lap up the luxury of the swanky ship – complete with its very own shopping mall, roller disco rink and a range of clubs for children – it’s said that players won’t be allowed on board as they are set to form their own strict Covid bubble at the Souq Al Wakra hotel in Doha.
Usually I hate the idea of being stuck on a cruise ship but I can’t lie, that does look pretty awesome. What a fun few weeks the WAGS have lined up ahead of them. Happy wife, happy life! It’s coming home!
