Charging for use of exercise bicycles?

Hi all


I just read a review which noted that Princess was charging for use of exercise bicycles.  Seriously... is this true?  They must be really special bikes.

It might have been for the Spinning Class -- use of the equipment without the class is free (I thought).

Yeah, I know spinning class is an extra. The review did not mention it as a class... it was simply the charge of using a bike.

Wow...that would truly be shameful if it were just for the bike. I'm thinking it's for a class.

Has to be for spin... How else are they going to regulate it then? Swipe your sea pass card for the peddles to move?

that is how they power the boat! LOL

And charge for the privilege!Big Smile

And add Gratuities onto that too!

Fortunately, every time I get on one of those bikes, I find myself at the top of the worlds longest hill. I never have to pedal a lick. Yummy

I wouldn't use the bicycle if I had to pay to do so. You can get just as much exercise walking up and down the stairs - that is what I do on cruises. I rarely take the elevastor.

I think this has to be the reason. I haven’t seen anything about charging to use the gym, only for the organized classes.
