Question How about Skeet shooting?

I think it was back in the late 80's, early 90's, all the cruise ships had skeet shooting, but was later banned because of enviornmental issues.

Anyone remember that or take part in it?

I've never sailed on a ship that had skeet shooting. It was eliminated before I started cruising in 2000.

I sure wish they had kept it but I guess it wasn't PC and the liability was probably too high for the cruiselines so it was eliminated.

Take care,
Mike

I remember it but never partook of the activity-- glad to see them ban it years ago.

My DH loved to skeet shoot off the back of the ship. He frequently says how he misses it.
