Basketball Cruises

Cruise, Develop skills & play basketball

Basketball cruises are a new revolutionary opportunity for athletes looking to take their game to the next level and get in-person exposure in multiple countries as well as industry-leading training on the ship between stops.

Why Choose A Basketball Cruise?

Basketball courts on cruises have been around for a long time. After all, what isn’t on a cruise ship? Given that your hotel (the ship) is on water, cruises afford travellers to see multiple destinations and unpack only once. As a result, cruise ships are the best way to see, experience and in this case, play basketball, all in one vacation. 

The basketball cruises are especially exciting because it offers everything a regular cruise has to offer, but more! So, not only will you get a great vacation, but a next level basketball experience as well. With COVID-19 impacting how sport operates, being on a cruise allows us to be in a bubble. Surely, taking the necessary precautions prior to boarding, will allow for a seamless and safe experience. Your basketball dreams can continue, just on water!

Our elite Programming For Cruises

Expose Basketball Skills Internationally

No matter how talented your basketball player is, the key to success in the basketball industry is exposure. It is vitally important to your athletes success to showcase their talent in front of industry professionals who can open doors for them.

We at DTI understand that there are multiple paths that can be taken to reach the highest-level of basketball and we understand that the college route is not for everyone. 

International athletes have become increasingly sought after by NBA and WNBA scouts due to their experience and unique skills they bring to the game. Not all athletes have the luxury of competing at the NCAA level or even want to give up some of their prime basketball years playing for free when they’re given the opportunity to get compensated for their talent straight out of high school around in the world.

Pro exposure combines and competitions at destinations

As part of our travel itinerary within cruise destinations, we have basketball combines and competitions set up for our basketball players to have the opportunity to compete in front of international scouts and teams while playing against and alongside local talent every time the ship docks in a new location.

All combines and competitions are matched to the athletes skill level and age group. 

This opportunity allows elite athletes to showcase their game to international teams to create opportunity for them to be scouted and offered contracts to play overseas. And for our up and coming stars, they have the opportunity to share their passion with international peers at the same skill-level and make some lifelong friends.
