Ace it this Wimbledon season (23rd June – 6th July) with a spot of tennis or paddle tennis on a luxury cruise liner. Avoid an overcrowded Murray Mound and score some points in sun-soaked style on a cruise that serves up much more than just fitness facilities. As the popularity of paddle tennis grows (think small-scale tennis played in the sun), you can play it for fun on many ships. With tennis courts provided by lines like Cunard and Norwegian Cruise Line on certain sailings, get ready to wear your whites, order in the Pimm’s and pick up that racquet.
Tennis with Norwegian Cruise Line
Precious gems in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet – the Jewel, Jade and Pearl – are destined for desirable places. Focusing on flexibility and family fun, the Jewel offers some of the largest suites at sea, while Jade takes command of the Mediterranean Ocean. On the Pearl you’ll find excellent activities such as rock climbing and ten-pin bowling. But the biggest draws for any tennis fan (by game, set and match) are the tennis courts, where you can perfect your serve and develop a mean backhand.
Tennis with Cunard
Cunard lead a fleet of three head-turning queens: Elizabeth, Mary II (named by Her Majesty the Queen herself) and Victoria. Known for delivering a prestigious White Star Service, the fleet is synonymous with luxury, tradition, royalty and sheer grandness. This creates a perfect setting for a delightful game of tennis on the deck, and maybe some celebratory Prosecco afterwards too.
Watch Wimbledon on-board
Prefer to be a spectator and take it easy with some juicy on-board snacks? You are on holiday after all. Enjoy watching all of the live Wimbledon action on a Cunard or P&O Cruises voyage, with an ice-cold beverage in hand. Football fans can keep up with all the FIFA World Cup coverage from Brazil too, set against a calming ocean backdrop to lift the spirits should your team underperform.
If tennis isn’t your thing then take advantage of the many other sports and activities available to book on plenty of CruiseDeals’ itineraries. Do you fancy swimming in amazing pools? Maybe you’d prefer taking a swing on a golf course? Or is zip-lining on deck more your cup of tea? Every cruise will keep you active no matter what your adventure level is. With gyms available on lots of ships too, keep yourself in shape and ready to take on each day.
Whether you’re training or spectating, you can celebrate the joys of Wimbledon while en-route to some spectacular destinations. With some serious sporting spirit on-board too, the atmosphere will spur you on to win that game or keep on cheering.
