Essential Golf: A passion for the Game

Golf En Route on Caribbean Cruises

If you’d like to see more of the Caribbean islands, and also play golf in a unique island setting, then there’s no better way of doing it than stepping aboard a luxury cruise liner.

From the familiar departure port of Miami, Regent Seven Seas give you a stylish choice of Caribbean routes and exotic ports of call. The Seven Seas Explorer cruise package, for example, is a 10-night, Miami to Miami adventure, visiting Nassau, Punta Cana, San Juan, St Kitts & Nevis, Antigua, St Maarten, then home to Miami.

Optional shore excursions at these island stop-offs are well thought out, ensuring there’s something for everyone, whatever your interests.

The Seven Seas Explorer package gives you the chance to step ashore and play golf for a half-day at the Royal St Kitts Golf Course. This championship 18-hole course opened in 1976 and has been recently renovated by architect Thomas McBroom of Toronto.

That all courses open to the public are designed to be “suitable for players of all levels,” is pretty much mandatory these days. And this course indeed fulfils the brief, giving a great assortment of fun and challenges, with water hazards on 10 holes, 80 bunkers and a multitude of coconut palm trees along the Atlantic coastal section of the course.

Then back aboard your Regent Seven Seas luxury cruise liner to enjoy fine dining, evening cabarets, as well as a daytime menu of activities lead by experts in cuisine, floristry and gardens, wine, and many other areas of interest, depending upon the package or cruise route you’ve chosen.

Regent Seven Seas have invested heavily in recent years to ensure guests have an outstanding luxury cruise experience. And in 2020, the company announces some enticing new ports of call that focus on both the Spanish and the French Caribbean.

If time is on your side, your adventure with Regent Seven Seas Cruises could take you much farther—to dream destinations or even around the world.
