Seas the Day: Dive into Pickleball Fun on Your Cruise!

Embark on a pickleball adventure at sea! Whether you're a novice or a seasoned player, seize the opportunity to engage in America's hottest new sport. Combining elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong, pickleball offers a thrilling experience for all. Gather your shipmates, grab your paddles, and prepare for an exhilarating match on the court.

Did you know?

  • Pickleball originated in 1965 on Bainbridge Island, just a short ferry ride from Seattle, Washington.
