GOLF CRUISES
 

GOLF & CRUISING -- WHAT A COMBINATION

Imagine being on a cruise ship gliding along a coast, then getting off every day with your own golf clubs to play the most well-known courses in the world. There are instruction videos about golf; a golf pro discussing technique and giving individual analysis and pointers, and a caddy cleans clubs and has them waiting at the next cruise port ready for play. Tee times and pairings are arranged, and passengers arrive at each cruise port finding their bags on the cart, ready to go.

You can combine golf with a cruise on both small ships and big ones. Or you can charter a ship and put together your own group for a golf cruise, or combine golf with team-building and a corporate meeting at sea.

Here are small ships that offer popular cruise golf programs on some of their cruises.
