Viewing parties for the UEFA European Championships will be held on board four Princess Cruises ships sailing around Europe this summer.

The tournament, which will see England hoping to go one better after losing in the final to Italy three years ago, gets underway on June 14, with the final in Berlin on July 14.

Princess Cruises has announced that four ships, the Sun Princess, Sky Princess, Regal Princess and Caribbean Princess, will screen the tournament and host viewing parties.

Caribbean Princess is due to sail into Southampton on Friday, the day the tournament starts, while Sky Princess will be in the city on Saturday.

Screenings will be held on a 300-square foot, 69000-watt giant TV screen placed poolside.

Additional venues will be prepared indoors to account for adverse weather conditions.

Special food and beverages will be provided during the games, encompassing themed pizza, curated cocktails, nacho plates and beer buckets.

Younger football fans will have the opportunity to meet Princess Cruises’ mascot, Stanley the Bear.

Football-themed face painting will be offered by Princess Cruises' youth staff.

UEFA Euro entertainment will consist of poolside sport challenges, with prizes available for football-specific trivia questions and a unique pre-game playlist.

During the Euros, Sky Princess will host two significant football celebrities as part of the Princess Cruises’ UK guest speakers programme.

Peter Beardsley MBE, an English football coach and former international player, will be onboard the Sky Princess on a 14-night Iceland and Norway trip from July 9 -13.

Later during the final, English football manager and former player, Terry Butcher, will join a 7-night Norwegian Fjords cruise.

Eithne Williamson, vice president Princess Cruises UK & Europe said: "Football fans cruising with Princess won’t have to worry about missing a single moment of the UEFA European Championship excitement. We know how important these matches are to our guests, and we're thrilled to provide an exceptional viewing experience at sea, allowing them to enjoy the games with fellow fans while also savouring their cruise holiday."
