Lady Luck onboard?

This news will please sports fans. In February, Princess Cruises announced sports betting at sea. For the first time ever, sports fans will have the opportunity to wager on sports from the comfort of their cruise ship. Princess Cruises today unveiled Ocean® Sportsbook, a new, real-time sports wagering option onboard its MedallionClass ships, giving guests the opportunity to bet on major sports competitions like professional* and college football, basketball, baseball and hockey as well as a wide variety of other exciting domestic and international events.

When the ship is in international waters, or wherever permitted by law, guests can use the MedallionClass app to wager on a host of major sports competitions, as well as place prop bets during live events taking place during their cruise. Guests also will have the opportunity to place bets on future competitions that occur well after their voyage.

    Thank goodness for Sheri, Mr. Cruise Tips TV and Junior. This past year has been such a struggle, above and beyond losing our bucket list December 2020 cruise. I found your podcast and listening through all your previous episodes are exactly what I need on my walks with my dog and driving my kids around to get my spirits up and have something to look forward to. Your timely information and advice, hilarious commentary, optimism and positivity never fail to put a smile on my face. I actually laughed so loud when I heard junior say “You know what they need. . . “ that people around me must have thought I was nuts. Keep up the great work and hopefully soon we’ll all see each other on the high seas!
