CELEBRITY CRUISES BRINGS PICKLEBALL TO THE HIGH SEAS
Fans Can Ride the Wave of the Hottest Sport on Nine of the Cruise Line’s Ships
The world’s fastest growing sport is coming to the world’s greatest cruise ships. Celebrity Cruises is adding pickleball courts to nine of its ships in the fleet. Whether a first-time player or an avid pro, travelers can enjoy open-air courts and panoramic ocean views while playing the popular sport, a hybrid of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.
Open to players of all skill levels, pickleball will be complimentary to all guests. Guests can enjoy pickleball at their leisure pending court availability, or as part of organized events and tournaments led by the ship’s activities team.
Separate times will be scheduled for adult play 18 and over, or family play of six years and older. Further, guests can bring their own equipment onboard, or use the pickleball net, paddles and balls provided by Celebrity Cruises.
“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!”
The nine Celebrity Cruises’ ships now offering pickleball include: Celebrity Beyond, Apex, Constellation, Eclipse, Equinox, Infinity, Millennium, Solstice, and Summit.
Court locations vary by ship. On Edge Series ships, cruisers can play pickleball at the lush and roomy Rooftop Garden. On Solstice Series ships, pickleball is offered on the Sports Deck (Deck 15). Meanwhile, on Millennium Series ships, players can head to the Sports Court (Deck 12).
