Cruise ships offer a wide variety of amenities and activities to appeal to all types of travelers. One of the most popular activities on cruise ships is bowling. Many cruise lines have added bowling alleys to their ships, giving passengers a chance to show off their skills and have fun.

Royal Caribbean International is one of the major cruise lines that feature bowling alleys on their ships. The cruise line has two Oasis-class vessels, Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, that feature full-size 10-pin bowling alleys located within the ship’s Adventure Ocean youth area. The lanes are open during certain hours depending on the itinerary and can accommodate up to 8 bowlers at once.

Carnival Cruise Line also features bowling alleys on some of its ships, including Carnival Splendor and Carnival Breeze. The lanes are located within the Sports Square area and feature a classic neon design with flat-screen monitors displaying scores as well as digital displays for game names and pinsetter notifications. In addition to traditional 10-pin bowling, guests can also enjoy cosmic bowling with glow-in-the-dark lanes, music videos, black lights, fog machines and more for an exciting late night experience.

Norwegian Cruise Line also offers a variety of themed bowling experiences across its fleet. On board Norwegian Escape guests can play at the Galaxy Pavilion where they can use interactive light technology for an out-of-this world experience or take part in Glow Bowling with neon colors and blacklights for a pulsating atmosphere during late night cosmic sessions. Other participating vessels include Norwegian Getaway, Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Epic and Norwegian Dawn.

Conclusion: Cruise ship passengers now have more options than ever when it comes to enjoying a game of bowling while sailing around the world. Royal Caribbean International, Carnival Cruise Line, and Norwegian Cruise Line all offer full size 10 pin bowling alleys on select vessels so you can show off your skills while sailing away in style.
