The "Adventure Dunes" course is certainly a one of a kind experience. There are very few places where you have to take wind speed and the rocking motion of a ship into account, but this is one of them. I gave this course an eight for difficulty because the carpets need replacing and some of the shots are genuinely tough. It's also rather tough because you're not entirely sure what will happen to the ball once it stops. For example, I had a hole in one on the 9th hole even though my ball had stopped right next to the cup. A gentle sea breeze and a few small waves were all that were need to roll the ball those next few centimeters. However, the course conditions usually worked against me rather than for me. I gave the course a three in creativity because there was nothing particularly special about the holes themselves aside from being on a cruise boat. Incidentally, I gave the atmosphere at ten because you are in fact playing minigolf on a cruise boat.  Seriously, where else can you play minigolf while drinking a pina colada and watching Caribbean islands sail by? The course is open 18 hours a day if you don't have your own equipment and 24 hours a day if you do.  The people who work there are really friendly and there is no ticket price. There's not too much of a dress code so you can go for a put after swimming in the pool or do as I did and go for a put in your suit after the formal dinner is over.  Overall, the actual layout and design of the holes are pretty average. However, because of its tricky environmental conditions and its overall unique circumstances, I'd have to rate the "Adventure of the Dunes" as one of the best courses I've been on.
