Fancy a game of footy? Your wish can be granted at the outdoor five-a-side football pitch at the Sport Center. Team up with some friends or family and play a match against another on-board team. A great way to have fun, get active and turn strangers into friends.

Squash Court

If a fast game of squash is your favourite way of keeping fit or if you’d just like to give it a first go, simply book the outside squash court at our on-board Sport Center and prepare to hit it like a pro. First played in Harrow, England, in 1830, the game certainly looks back on a long history.
