Im not really into gyms and fitness centers. What else can I do aboard a ship for fitness?
Heres what you can do: • Walk or jog. Every ship has a promenade deck or dedicated jogging track. On ships with promenade decks that encircle the vessel theres usually a posted distance around (on bigger ships 3 or 4 times around equals about one mile). Jogging tracks are usually topside and range from just some painted lines on the floor to special, composite tracks with banked turns. Counterclockwise travel is the norm both on jogging tracks and promenades. • Swim. Ship pools arent Olympic-sized but theyre not the bathtub-size pools of the past, either. Some ships offer lap pools and a few (on Princess Cruises largest ships, for instance) youll see counter-current lap pools where you can swim against a pre-set current of water. Try to time your swim workout for the mornings before the pool areas get busy. • Deck sports. Some kind of sports activity is available on every ship. To the once obligatory shuffleboard and Ping Pong, today’s ships add volleyball, basketball, or deck tennis.
