Every cruise I say I am going to work out just a little each morning. Every cruise I pack my workout clothes. Every day of every cruise I wait up and say, "Heck, I ain't gonna work out. I am on vacation!!" Every cruise, my workout clothes come home nice and clean and fresh!!! Ready for me to start working off the 5 pounds I gained on the ship!!!!!
This cruise coming up will be different. This cruise I will work at least ----- once!!!!
I B CRUZIN'
(solo cruzin' by design)
Amanda, I use the gym everyday aboard ship. I must admit, I don't put as much time in as I do at home, but I would typically get up early and use it before breakfast. My wife would sometimes use the gym or go off jogging on the promenade deck. I love to eat and can't imagine how much weight I would gain without using the gym!! Nothing beats looking out over the ocean while working out!
I normally use the gym at home. When I am on the cruise, you can say I don't. But it is improving. On my first two cruises I never even set foot in the gym. On my third cruise, I actually dressed-down in my workout clothes, went to the gym and did a few lifts on the weight machines. Next cruise I just might do an honest work-out .
Out of 18 cruises, I've been in the gym twice. However, between snorkeling and walking I've never had any trouble with weight gain. Even if I did, who cares, I'm on vacation. I'll worry about it when I get back to the cold reality of work-yuck!!
Not really. The ships are so big that it is hard to tell what direction the ship is going unless you have a window to look out. Even the free weights didn't roll around when you set them down. I did see one older gentleman do a face down into the treadmill and then get thrown out the back. Not sure what happened there, I think he was looking backwards at something (maybe trying to see where he had been)? Needless to say, that was the last time I saw him in the gym. It had nothing to do with the ships movement though.
