If you have ever missed the boat – got back to the pier and found your cruise ship has left without you – you’ll know why the guys in this video are in such a hurry.
Not sure how many other ships would allow them to clamber aboard from jetskis though. And just as a matter of interest, are those wave runners now adrift in the Caribbean?
Leaving those details said, it’s a great way to publicise Thomson Dream‘s 2014-2015 sailings from Montego Bay. And of course, these are not regular passengers, they are members of 3RUN, the free running team who have worked on movies such as Casino Royale, and in a promotional video for Thomson Dream last year.
They were joined by Olympic medallist Yohan Blake and there are some spectacular scenes as the team climb Dunn’s River Falls and vault their way through market stalls in Ocho Rios.
Helen Caron, Managing Director of Thomson Cruises said: “We are very excited to team up with 3RUN for the second time to showcase our stunning new home port of Jamaica. Last year, we worked with them to create a stunt style movie scene to unveil the Platinum upgrade on the Thomson Dream our new film highlights the many stunning attractions our guests can visit on the island.
“We are delighted that Yohan Blake made a cameo appearance in the film to help showcase the delights his fantastic home country has to offer. With 2.3 million holidaymakers searching for a cruise in February, we really wanted to drive awareness of Thomson Dream’s new Caribbean and Central America routes amongst cruise and new-to-cruise customers. We are really looking forward to welcoming customers on board Thomson Dream in Montego Bay in December and setting side to a wide range of destinations from Cuba and Costa Rica to Panama and Honduras.”
Chase Armitage, CEO of 3RUN and Director of Dream Runners says: “The Jamaican scenery is awesome and it was incredible to freerun against spectacular backdrops like Dunn’s River Falls and Martha Brae River. We really hope Dream Runners gives a flavour of what customers on Thomson Dream will be able to experience later this year. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Yohan Blake, let alone race against him! Despite running at top speed with a head start, Blake sped past us, so it’s clear to see why he is the second fastest man in the world.”
Thomson Dream sets sail from Montego Bay, Jamaica in December 2014 to destinations including Costa Rica, Panama, Cuba, Honduras, Belize and Mexico.
