Emerald Cruises director of sales, marketing and product Angus Crichton said there had been great excitement and interest in the new luxury yacht cruising on Emerald Azzurra.
"It's like cruising on your own luxury yacht, living the lifestyle, but not having to pay for the mooring and fuel costs," he said.
"This experience is even more exclusive when you're cruising through the exotic Arabian Peninsula. I'd be happy to carry the competition winner's bags," he laughed.
