Most cruise lines have one common court for playing different outdoor games.

You can play basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc. on such cruise ships.

Some cruise lines have themed tennis cruise packages also.

You can play at local tennis clubs on such themed cruises.

Disadvantages of playing tennis on cruise ships

  • The multi-purpose courts will be too small for you to play tennis.
  • If the ship is moving, playing tennis will be difficult due to the strong sea breeze.
  • Sometimes cruise lines close the courts for various reasons. So you will not be able to use them.

Tips on playing tennis on a cruise

If you want to play tennis on cruise ships, here are my tips:

  • Opt for an MSC cruise, but make sure that there is a full-sized tennis court on the ship.
  • You should also make sure that the tennis court will be open during your cruise dates.
  • If you have the budget, then opt for the World Residences At Sea.
  • If you are in the UK, then opt for charter boats and play at local tennis clubs.
  • Opt for a themed cruise so that you can play tennis every day during the journey.
  • Always carry your own tennis gear as you will not get it on cruise ships.
