  1. daisy-mae, good to know about other ships. The Eurodam had a scheduled time each day for play too. That made sense in case others wanted to play basketball on the same space. I think it would be great if ships would make accommodations for indoor pickleball (say the main stage?) because there are way too many days when it's nearly impossible to play outside. I had a SSIPA jacket with me that says "Pickleball Rocks" on the back. That was a great conversation starter and let people know I was a 'pickler'.
  2. Rob Bob: turns out the Eurodam did have center line on both sides of the net. It was a tape line and wasn't one continuous line, but it sufficed to know where the service boxes were. On a 17-day cruise, I got to play only once because the weather permitted. And it felt happy and exotic to play on a ship. The people were as most pickleball people are: fun, happy, joyful. Most days it was way too windy, some days too cold, other days way too rocky. Our cruise was confronted by that monster storm in Hawaii and so in addition to having 3 out of 5 Hawaii port of calls cancelled, the navigator said the seas were the roughest he'd encountered save for a trip in South America one other time. Nevertheless, it was a cruise of a lifetime for me. I may write a review elsewhere, but I am here to tell you that the Eurodam was awesome. The crew were amazing, and the dining was a gourmet dinner every night.
  3. Rob-Bob: My goodness, and I claim to be a pickleball player! Gasp, I hadn't noticed that but you're right, the center lines are missing. I will pack some chalk and a tape measure. We'll figure out a way to make it straight. I cannot believe I missed that.
  4. If you look at this website, you can see the pickleball lines are evident on the basketball court. I don't know where the net is, but I hope it's on wheels and we can just move it into place. https://www.oyster.com/ships/225936-eurodam/photos/basketball-court/ . I may have just found the net. If you look at this panorama view, I think you'll see the net in an odd configuration kind of standing up on edge. https://www.oyster.com/ships/225936-eurodam/panoramas/basketball-court--v27790/
  5. Thanks everyone. Going to stay at and use Wyndham Bayside cruise self-parking. Used the website sandiegocruiseparking.com $11/day.
  6. Rob-Bob, not sure of the distances, but the Plaza in Vegas has a new giant pickleball facility on the roof. Also, if you go to the usapa.org site and click on Places2Play and choose vegas, you will find many other places in vegas. Pickle on.
  7. Heading out on the Eurodam from San Diego on Feb. 3. I think I heard there's pickleball on the ship. Anybody know for sure?
  8. Would you have a recommendation of where to spend one overnight in San Diego, near Terminal B where the HAL 17-day Circle Hawaii cruise leaves from (leaving Feb. 3)? What do we do with our car for the 17 days? Will the hotel let us store it there? Is there somewhere else you would recommend we keep it (considerations for cost, safety, etc.). Thanks for your help. I posted this elsewhere, kind of in the wrong place, but still got some good recommendations. It was recommended I repost here. Thanks for your help. First cruise in 30 years, came up very suddenly, thus the nearness to departure date.
