Royal Caribbean Cruise
Somewhere in the eastern Caribbean
Par: ? Other Activities: Being on a cruise ship
This is the first minigolf course on a cruise ship that will be officially reviewed by a member of The Putting Penguin staff (and the first time Mandy has been on a cruise!). This 9-hole course was tucked away on the 15th deck of the Oasis of the Seas near the teen recreation area and sports court. The view is incredible! And because the boat is so big, you hardly feel that you’re moving while you’re putting.
The greens were in good shape, and the holes had small obstacles, curves, and bumps. Statues of animals and golfers were located throughout the course. The putters were typical for a minigolf course, however, the golf balls were a lighter weight ball (likely because no one wants players taking a full swing with a heavy golf ball on a boat). The cups were metal, and lessened the chance of a ball bouncing out. There were no score cards or any indication of what par was for each hole.
Though simple, this was a very enjoyable course to play. Next time you take a cruise please be sure to play the minigolf course if there is one and send us a review!
