Cruise with Greg - Discover our 2020 ‘Isles of the UK’ bowls cruise

Posted on

After the success of our 2019 bowls cruise, we are bowled over to say that we are doing it all again in 2020. Book your place and jump on board our nine-night ‘Isles of the UK’ bowls cruise, which departs Dover on 15th July 2020 on Fred. Olsen's Boudicca.

The British Isles has breathtaking scenery, endless countryside, lots of history, culture-rich cities, and this is a wonderful chance to explore some of the delights it has to offer. Showcasing the beauty of the UK, there will be stop-offs to play local bowls teams along the way, includingin St. Peter Port, Falmouth, Kirkwall and Aberdeen, as well as two days to explore independently Portree and Lerwick.

Once again our Potters Bowls Ambassador and Potters Bowls Shop Manager, Greg Harlow, will host it, with opportunities to play with him, get some tips and get to know Greg better.

We caught up with Angela Bennett, who looks after and organises our Potters Abroad Cruises, to find out more about what you can expect…

“2020 will be our ninth bowls cruise and I have been lucky enough to have helped host them all. Everyone has so much fun, so much so that other passengers on board the cruise ship ask to join in, but this bowls experience can only be booked through Potters Abroad!

“For those who have never been, a bowls cruise is a combination of a cruise holiday with like-minded people who enjoy bowls and all the activities and entertainment of a cruise ship, as well as have the opportunity to visit and explore several amazing places all on one holiday. Of course, if you are coming with someone who doesn’t play bowls, then they will be able to enjoy all the additional activities and facilities on the ship, enjoy the beautiful locations we visit and watch the bowlers play.

“This UK cruise will celebrate and showcase some of the attractions, treasures and places of interest in the UK, and there is so much to discover and see, and allows guests to see the UK from a new perspective.

“As well as bowls at local clubs around the UK, the friendly Potters spirit can be enjoyed by all, as well as good accommodation, great food, daytime activities and amazing evening entertainment. We also organise some exclusive group activities on sea days, starting off with a welcome meeting giving all guests an opportunity to get to know each other, a fun activity with Greg and a farewell meeting where we have prizes for our top players of the cruise! Of course, you also have plenty of free time to join in all the day and evening entertainment on the ship or just take it easy and relax in many lounges inside the ship or on one of the decks outside. I can’t wait to explore the UK with you all on this cruise.”
