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.

Here’s what people are saying about the CruiseTipsTV Unplugged Podcast

  • Informative and thorough cruise podcast
    September 16, 2021 by katde81 from United States

    This podcast is very much worth the listen. I have never cruised before and found myself interested in planning future cruises. I hit the jackpot when I found Cruise Tips TV. You will find all aspects of cruising in the podcast. Sheri and Mr. Cruise Tips TV tell reviews about previous cruises and excursions, cruise industry news, preparation tips, packing tips, and so much more. They tell you so much useful information all while having a really wonderful dynamic that makes listening to them truly fun. I am so glad that I found this podcast. I now really feel prepared to plan some cruises for my family and I and I’m really excited to do so. This is literally the best travel podcast that I have found. One non podcast tip- check out their YouTube channel if you aren’t on the move. It’s really great to be able to get a real visual, especially of the ships and excursions.

    You can’t help but hear Sheri’s voice and get swept away into the world of cruising. Whenever I’m really missing the feel of the ocean or the excitement of packing up my favorite cruise items, I listen to Sheri and feel like we’re right there together. She’s like the cream filling between each ‘cookie’ cruise you get to take.
