Cruise ships 'offer healthy holidays'

Article content

13 November 2009

While many cruise ship holidays have been linked with overindulgence in the past, operators are beginning to shift towards offering healthy travelling, it has been observed.

According to The Times, well-known names in the industry - such as Royal Caribbean, Carnival and Crystal - are making changes to their services to incorporate more fitness programmes and low-fat cuisine.

It noted that rock-climbing walls, mini-tennis courts and running tracks are all features that are starting to appear on cruise lines, with some even offering Nordic walking classes.

The news source quoted Carolyn Spencer Brown, editor in chief of industry website CruiseCritic.co.uk, as saying that organisations have "not only made healthy cruising possible, they've wrapped it up in fun activities, expansive fitness facilities and tempting spa menus that are so enjoyable you'll almost forget you're being healthy".

NCL Freestyle Cruising recently advised this kind of excursion to those looking to travel at Christmas, with the firm noting it is an ideal time to visit warmer climates.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19458903-ADNFCR
