Paris Summer Olympics; a Gold Medal Summer in the City of Light

From the heart of Paris being transformed into the Summer Olympic Village to the naming of Lionel Messi as the "Icon" of Royal Caribbean's Icon of the Seas, this year is already filled with milestone moments for athletes & sport fans. Some of the most iconic moments just have to be experienced in-person.

From luxury hotel to airport transfers & guided group tours, we are here to make sure your trip-of-a-lifetime is seamless. So pack your bags & let an MVT advisor do the rest. We have highlighted some experiences that will certainly be another reason to travel. 

When are the Paris Summer Games?
July 26, -August 11, 2024

You just have to be there.

One of the most agreed-upon travel tips that you'll hear from all travel advisors is this: book now. 

The Paris Summer Games will be held throughout the majestic city of light. For the first time in history, the Opening Ceremony will take place literally on the Seine River, and Olympic Games will be held within the city center and among Paris' historic landmarks. 

The Paris Olympic Village is truly a once in a lifetime experience, and MVT travel advisors know which central luxury hotels still have availability to put you as close as possible to the heart of the Olympic Village. 

While many 5-star hotel properties are going to be booked out for the worlds' athletes, a surprising yet wonderful alternative is river cruising!

Soccer superstar Lionel Messi as the "Icon" of the Icon of the Seas

The energy of a big game brings people together. The biggest and most loyal fans are willing to travel long distances to be a part of the live action. Take the Icon of the Seas for example, you just have to see it to believe it. It only makes sense to dedicate the Icon of the Seas to the soccer superstar known around the word, Lionel Messi. 

Why use a travel advisor?

Whether it's cruising the world's oceans on the world's largest cruise ship, or a river cruise through Europe just in time for the Paris Summer Olympics- an MVT travel advisor is going to have insider tips, experience & life-hacks so that you can live in the moment while watching the big game, or race.
