Does anyone know if they're playing the Stanley Cup playoffs anywhere onboard? In the lounges? On the giant funnel TV?

I am sure they will be on the tvs in some of the adult lounges. When we were on a Thanksgiving cruise on the Wonder they were playing some of the football games on the Jumbotron so you never know..

When we were on a Thanksgiving cruise on the Wonder they were playing some of the football games on the Jumbotron so you never know..Football is an all American sport. Hockey is more closely followed by us Canucks. The lounges may have a game on, though it may not be the Canucks games. The closer to the finals, the greater the liklihood.

I read something about how someone couldn't find the Masters anywhere on board and was told it was because CBS is not a CapCities/Disney company.

Hockey has a contract with Versus and NBC. Disney owns ABC and ESPN.

Can you get NBC on the in-room tvs? If so, I would think games on NBC would be available. But I don't imagine a disney ship would have Versus, given the competition between ESPN and Versus.

Right now they are watching the NBA playoff's...every year I go on DCL around this time...everyone is sitting around on the top deck watching the playoff's/finals.

Not surprising -- owned by ESPN and ABC (e.g., Disney).

We were just on the Dream last week. I suggest you go down to the sports bar. They have alot of TVs. Even if the big TV is on an NBA playoff game, I'm sure the bartender would turn one of the small TVs to any other game you want (assuming they have the channel).

I'm going to have to talk to the captain about this. *Not* showing the playoffs when you've got a 24 by 24 foot TV screen should be a crime.

Disney owns ABC. Doesn't show NBC shows. I was on in May 2007 and couldn't find a game

ESPN dumped hockey many years ago. Versus now is the NHL broadcast station so you will not get hockey on any of the Disney ships....

As an Islander fan I never have to worry about playoff hockey so we can cruise during hockey playoff time!

But then again, what do I say about my leafs?:rotfl2:

We were on the dream last week and there was No NHL playoffs. NONE! Plenty of NBA, but only the national broadcast. My guess would be IF there is a national game, you have a shot but based on last week, you maybe out of luck.

Of course I am a die hard Devils fan so it didn't effect me for the first time in 15 years.

Aw man, that stinks...I think I'll keep this info from hubby and hope for some national-run games (darn you, Versus!).

Note-to-self- no more cruises during hockey playoffs. Especially when my team barely got through to the next round...it may all be over by the time we can watch again!

Well, NBC only has the NHL contract thru 2021 so there's hope espn will be back in the picture in 10 years. :rolleyes1

Just off the Dream 3 weeks ago. NO NHL in sports bar as only ESPN/ABCon TV. Bartender was from Canada so he was sympathetic. I kept up with my Penguins on my laptop. My wife was upset I had to leave dinner to check the score. Hope this helps.

Just have to say - GO FLYERS!!Now that Montreal is out, I have to agree. (So that the Canucks can destroy them of course!) It would be top of the east vs top of the west. (Or North vs South/Yankees vs Confeds?)

And they say Hockey is just for Canadian's. I agree with sunshine girl. Grew up south of Detriot and at least we can count on the Redwings.

They (Bruins) certainly gave us a beating today, but as they say, it's only game 1.

It's really quite irrelevant. All teams will fall to the mighty Canucks.

Just off the Magic yesterday..:sad2:
NO PLAYOFFS!! I was dealing ok with that until Fri when
the Wings played. I had to get up dates from / about the
game on the ESPN tickers. NOT a great way to find out what
was going on.
As someone mentioned, its due to the fact Versus isnt owned by
Disney.
