The Royal Caribbean Cruise line Lawn Club exemplifies the very finest in green roof design and engineering, providing the exquisite presentation and luxury Royal Caribbean guests have come to expect.  The apply named Lawn Club is featured on cruise liners Solstice, Eclipse, Equinox, and Silhouette.  In addition to lawn games such as bocce, golf, and croquet, some of lawn clubs also features a hot glass show, cook to order grill, and lounge.


Normally, a lawn of this caliber requires a soil depth of at least a foot.  Due to weight restrictions, a modified green roof system with subsurface irrigation was engineered to provide a light weight solution with a 5 inch profile.  A surface irrigation system with hand watering is also employed to flush excess salts from the lawn.  All run off from the system is collected and treated on the ship.    

A specially selected grass mix allows the lawn to remain lush and green despite stress from salt, changes in latitude, and foot traffic.  A team of highly experienced golf course specialists are on staff to ensure 24 hour monitoring and the health of the lawn.   

The Lawn Club has been such a huge success Royal Caribbean will be adding yet another Lawn Club to their latest ship scheduled for completion at the end of 2012.
