Recently, before going on our Alaska cruise, we were wondering what kind of exercise would be available.
We discovered that there are different exercise options available on the ship including a gym, stretch classes, circuit training classes, and even a 5K race on the Jogging Track.
The jogging track was 1/10 of a mile. So in other words it takes 10 times around to make 1 mile. This is a great alternative if you are at sail and cannot leave the ship. You can also climb the stairs if you’d like to. We climbed the stairs a couple of times from deck 6 to deck 14.
When you CAN leave the ship, you WILL do a LOT of walking.
Have you ever played Pickle Ball? We were told the ship had a Tennis court and a little shocked to not find a Tennis Court but a Pickle Ball court. Thank goodness we left our racquets behind. A Pickle Ball court is a shorter court with paddles similar to ping pong paddles. Plus when you hit the ball, you have to really SMACK it hard. It’s not as easy as it looks.
Watch the video below to see a few of the fitness ideas available on the ship.
