Fight flab on cruise holidays

Date Posted: 08 Jul 2008

While in principle the concept of a holiday aboard a vessel of defined specifications with numerous restaurants and bars and the concept of weight loss do not go hand in hand, it has been noted that cruise holidays can indeed be a top holiday for parting with the pounds.

According to the Mirror, dining rooms aboard cruise ships often have a healthy option, with Independence of the Seas, a Royal Caribbean Cruises vessel, even offering passengers the opportunity to take part in An Eat More to Weigh Less scheme.

This programme includes a tour of the buffet restaurant by an instructor who can provide tips on the healthier food options available.

And it is not only Royal Caribbean Cruises, with its onboard gym and surf pool, that is catering to the carb crunching consumers.

Carnival Cruises boasts a ship-top jogging deck, a golf course and a multi-faceted swimming pool.

Meanwhile, onboard all Princess Cruises ships, passengers can take part in the latest fitness fad - Wii Fit.

Jan Swartz, Senior Vice-President of Princess Cruises stated: "We're very excited to partner with Nintendo to bring the Wii Fit experience to our passengers."

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "
