Default skeet shooting

I just booked my second cruise but this time my husband is going and it is his first! He is so disappointed that there is no skeet shooting. I told him they dont do it anymore, but honestly i dont even know, i havent heard of anyone doing this....

Sorry it was a safety and environmental issue, so it's no longer done. Here is an article on some of the other features that are now gone. You can't drive golf balls off the back of the ship either. To me the most sad one on the list if the end of the midnight buffet, it was such are amazing thing. But I understand it could be a waste of food. This must be an older article because Carnival did do one midnight buffet on a seven day, but no longer.

The last skeet shooting I did was on the Royal Caribbean Nordic Prince in the 1980s. It just does not exist anymore because of enviromental and safety issues. Seems like the ships are moving toward electronic games and activities.
