Club Standard Bridge

This holiday is a club standard bridge holiday licensed by the EBU (English Bridge Union) with Masterpoints awarded and duplimated boards used. We have recently introduced electronic scoring to our holidays and hand records are also provided. Our qualified & experienced directors construct a programme of interesting seminars and varied bridge sessions to offer variety during each holiday.

Join us for this brand new 14-night Bridge cruise with Fred. Olsen! Get ready for inspirational, immersive experiences, as small ship Borealis takes you on an unforgettable discovery of Morocco’s many marvels. From fascinating historic sites and magnificent mosques to iconic, medinas, souks and kasbahs, this is a discovery of diverse highlights, and an authentic taste of Moroccan culture.

A two-day stay in Casablanca would be a highlight of any itinerary, and you’re sure to look forward to your time in this iconic city. Make the most of your opportunity to uncover the many world-renowned sites; or perhaps tour to magical Marrakech for bustling souks, prestigious religious monuments and the famous Medina, alive with energetic markets, street food vendors, artists and all manner of performers. If you choose to stay in Casablanca, you could marvel at the sight of the majestic Hassan II Mosque, and enjoy flavoursome Tagine cuisine.

Elsewhere, for your first experience of Morocco at its most authentic, a visit to Agadir is a chance to explore Souk El Had and try local flavours of mint tea, fruits and spices; and even learn about how Argan Oil is made, meeting the ladies who crush the nuts from endemic argan trees. Agadir is also your gateway to the Atlas Mountains; on tour, you could trek the foothills and witness some of Morocco’s most magnificent scenery. With a visit to Tangier, where a city of soaring minarets and domes, a legendary Kasbah – once the sultan's walled palace and gardens – and animated souks will make a lasting impression too, you’ll make a lifetime of memories to savour during your time in Morocco. If all that wasn’t enough, Borealis also takes you to Northern Ireland and Portugal to visit two capital cities rich with maritime history and heritage – Belfast and picturesque Lisbon.

Join us every evening for our First for Bridge sessions under the direction of Nigel Durie. We have exclusive use of the lovely card room on board each evening and as always Masterpoints and prizes will be awarded. On sea days, relaxed bridge sessions and some seminars will also be available.
