Do you exercise on your cruise?

On my yes I went there. As for my wife and I we do and we have our routines. She is an elliptical machine person, me I walk the deck for 45 min to an hour. I do the gym twice a week.


What at is your routine?

On my last cruise besides taking the stairs a lot and walking a few miles in each port I also hit the gym 3 times for 45 min each doing most of my regular work out that I do at home. It was a success, I ate well, enjoined the deserts and did not gain any weight.

We usually do an hour in the gym daily. Also we always use the stairs and hardly use the elevators.

I have a bad knee, so up the stairs not down, use elevators. Hubby is in the gym daily since cardiac rehab, even on cruises.

Absolutely positively definitely categorically excuse is living out in the back of beyond theres daily stuff that needs tending..and its all physical...and I enjoy it (more than I ever did working for a living) so cruising is a vackay from that.....a vackay from retirement! HAH!...that's my story and Im sticking to it...unless elbow bending and walking to different food venues counts...…….

First we need to define exercise. My arms get a very vigorous workout lifting all of that rick food from plate to mouth several times a day more often than when on land. Not to mention all of those heavy liquid weights that get constantly lifted .... But then I do find I use the stairs a fair bit and walk the decks several times a day so based on that ... I exercise.

How about getting up n down from the chaise loungers..and those barstools can get tricky too, walking to and back from those faraway tables in the MDR's.....and don't forget walking down those long corridors, depending on your cabin location? all kinds of sneaky ways you can work out...or claim to hehehehe

Really try too - usually run/walk the track or at least the treadmill for an hour. Sailed Symphony this summer and they have a track that is short of a 1/2m and its covered so you don't deal with the elements.

We are not gym people! We take the stairs (except when shlepping luggage or if I'm wearing heels (Yes, I do on occasion). We do walk a lot more on the ship and try to walk an additional planned mile per day on the "running/walking" path found on many ships. Much like OldGreyWolf and Yankee47 have mentioned, I do those exercises routinely on every cruise.Wink

Elbow bends, stair and bar hopping-best exercise ever.

Walk about ship is about all.
