How to stay healthy on a cruise

As well as wanting to ensure that there are medical amenities onboard in case of an illness, cruise passengers also like to know that there is the chance to keep up their health regimes on board.

What some people don’t realise is that there are many ways beyond the traditional onboard gym to do this. For example, some cruise liners host classes which are a great place to get a good workout and meet some new friends.

On top of this, some ships have running tracks around the edge of the ship, as well as a range of sports courts for the likes of basketball and tennis. And that’s without mentioning the obvious ways to work out including heading out at port for walks, and taking a dip in the pool on the ship itself.

You won’t be short of healthy cruising activities on your break, so there’s no need to be concerned about that!

In terms of onboard diets, some may worry that all the food and drink will cause their waistline to expand. Again, this doesn’t need to be the case. If you choose your meals sensibly and remember to indulge from time to time (you are on holiday, after all), you’ll be fine.

The amount of places to eat onboard is also helpful in this way - simply because you have plenty of choices including everything from buffets to formal dining experiences. It’s always best to check what’s on the menu and keep your wits about you if you’re hoping to be a little more on the healthy side. Opting for fish over red meat can still provide a tasty meal except with a little more nutrition too.
