Default Cruises that offer golf

Do you know of any other cruise lines (other than Princess) that offer golf in various ports on their itineraries?

Carnival does. They have a golf pro on the ship who also goes on the golf excursions. If you check Carnival.com, you can pull up a listing of shore excursions for each port so you can see if they have anything for you.

Every CCL cruise I have been on has offered golf in at least one port, and almost all the cruises have had a golf pro on board.

All of the major ones seem to. I am not a golfer but have seen them on CCL and RCI and know of programs on both of those lines for golfers.

You can also book your own golf excusions - and often save money on greens fees.

Hi: My dh is an avid golfer and Celebrity usually has a golf pro and clinic onboard. The golf pro can arrange golf excursions and often organises drive and putting competitions onboard. On some ships we have been on, partners/wives of golfers get freebies like a spa discount or free massage session if I remember rightly.

I am not a golfer myself but the golf pros have always accommodated me as a "ride a long". Although we have pre-booked or booked golf excursions on board, we only do so if the ship is docking for a short time (that way you are sure you don't get left behind and/or the golf pro gets you back onboard before she sails!). Ordinarily, we look up the golf course on-line and pre-book a tee time over the 'phone before we leave and just grab a cab when we dock - sometimes it is more economical to do this but be sure you will finish and be able to get back to the ship on-time!

If you can find another golfing couple, it can work out even cheaper as you save on the transport costs.
