Some of the largest cruise ships in the world will soon offer the sport with the fastest growth. Pickleball courts are being added to nine Celebrity Cruises ships. Guests can participate in the popular sport, a fusion of tennis, badminton, and ping pong, while taking in the magnificent ocean views and playing on open-air courts.
Pickleball will be provided without charge to all passengers who board a participating ship. Depending on court availability, visitors can play pickleball at their leisure or as part of scheduled programs and competitions run by the ship’s activities crew. There will be designated periods for family play for children older than six and for adults (18 and over). In addition to using the pickleball net, paddles, and balls provided by Celebrity Cruises, passengers may also bring their own equipment with them.
“We are so excited to offer this social, fun and trending activity to both new and seasoned cruisers alike, whether traveling solo, as a couple, or as a group,” said Keith Lane, Senior Vice President, Hotel Operations, Celebrity Cruises. “And, imagine playing on the ship’s top deck with views of some of the world’s most amazing places all around you. What an experience!”
Celebrity Beyond and Celebrity Apex, two Edge Series ships, together with Celebrity Constellation, Celebrity Eclipse, Celebrity Equinox, Celebrity Infinity, Celebrity Millennium, Celebrity Solstice, and Celebrity Summit are among the nine Celebrity Cruises ships that currently offer pickleball. Court locations vary by ship.
