Even though you go on a cruise to get away from your normal day-to-day life, there are a few things that you cannot be without, and one of them is watching sporting events. This is because it is horrible to watch an entire season of your chosen sport, and then miss out on some crucial games while on vacation.
Take NFL, we know the new season is starting tomorrow and if you are about to go on a cruise then there is good news, as there are several cruise ship companies airing games from the 2013-2014 NFL season.
Going back a few years ago such a thing would never had happened at sea, but that is the beautiful thing about Satellite TV. Being able to watch an NFL game while on a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean is a wonderful experience, as you are joined by fellow fans and so find you can get caught up in the moment and feel as though you are at your favorite sports bar back home.
USA Today has a list of cruise lines and their ships showing NFL Games for this season, and we are not surprised to see Carnival Cruise Lines, Crystal Cruises, Disney Cruise Line, Holland America Line, Pride of America, Princess and Royal Caribbean on that list.
These cruise lines also show other sporting events, but you can imagine our frustration when on board a P&O ship a couple of years back hoping to watch an F1 race, because all they did was favor football/soccer.
