Queen Victoria has 2 short mat rinks. The Eclipse has a real grass lawn but I can't remember which games are played on it.
I remember playing indoor bowls on my very first cruise some 13 years ago. It was on an Airtours ship and we played in one of the lounge bars with the tables moved to create 'the rink'. It was also a bit choppy and made for an interesting game!!
If I can't be SKIING then CRUISING is the next best thing
They had bowls on the Spirit in Oct.
Laid a mat out the full length of the lounge.
And boy were they serious.!!!
Every game was won by a lady
16:00: Carpet Bowls, Join Lewis for game. Who will get nearest to the jack!
We were in port btw.

As a tenpin bowler of 'International Standards' admitted many years ago, I just had to try out the lanes on NCL when they first introduced them, other than being shorter than normal lanes, we had lots of fun, playing at sea.
However think they should allow extra weight allowance when flying to join ship, as my balls weigh sixteen pounds each.
Okay have heard all the jokes about the above statement.
