ENGLAND fans are being offered the chance to live on a luxury cruise ship for £160 a night while they watch the Three Lions in Qatar.
With around 1.2million people set to descend on the tiny country, finding an affordable and decent place to stay has been challenge.
At one end there’s £23,000-a-night luxury hotel suites while less fussy fans on tighter budgets can pay a bargain £75 to bunk in shared rooms.
Sailing to the rescue of fans who want somewhere they can stay without breaking the bank is the MSC Poesia, a floating luxury hotel with 1265 cabins.
The huge vessel comes with seven swimming pools, 13 whirlpools and a luxurious yacht club.
As well as somewhere to stay, the ship is also a way to dodge Qatar’s strict laws on booze which include a zero-tolerance policy for drinking or appearing drunk in public.
There are seven bars on board to cater for thirsty fans celebrating England’s wins and a nightclub to kick on for after-hours fun.
The five restaurants include French and Italian eateries as well as a Sushi.
In total around 3000 fans will be able to stay on the 92,600 ton ship in a variety of cabins.
These range from traditional cabins overlooking the sea to rooms with balconies and luxury suites.
All cabins have one double bed convertible to two single beds.
Along with MSC World Europa and the MSC Poesia is one of two cruise liners that will be hosting fans during the global showpiece event.
Around 40,000 supporters are expected to be staying on ships after Qatar chartered the two boats from MSC Cruises.
For fans with deeper pockets, one third-party site is listing hotel rooms for a whopping £4,000-a-night, according to moneycontrol.
Or, if money is just an object, a third-party is flogging a “head of state” suite for a mind-boggling £23,000 a-night – with a 30-night minimum stay.
Others have been hiring £20,000 a night superyachts complete with helipads and Michelin-star chefs for the World Cup.
The England team’s manager Gareth Southgate picked the five-star Souq Al-Wakra hotel as their base for the tournament.
England’s top Wags will want for nothing on the incredible £1billion MSC World Europa, where a glamorous fleet will stay to cheer on our Three Lions during the Qatar World Cup.
The 1,093 ft floating hotel — dubbed HMS Wag — was christened in a glittering ceremony in Qatar over the weekend as it prepared to welcome its VIP guests at capital city Doha.
Official fan villages that have been set up for the tournament, with some more appealing than others.
One option costs almost £200-a-night, but the “cabins” are more like glorified shipping containers.
Billed as an official fan village, the tiny cabins can fit up to two guests inside at a time, and are close to Lusail Stadium, where the final will be held.
