Wellbeing_-_Arcadia

I’m trying to get in shape this year. Which cruise lines are best for wellness?

Contrary to popular opinion, it is possible to lose weight on a cruise (or at least stay the same size as when you boarded) and it’s certainly easy to get fit. Many onboard gyms feature state-of-the-art equipment and creative workouts like Spinning classes and Kinesis Walls, as well as the more common Pilates, Zumba and yoga.

In addition there are jogging/walking tracks and various on shore activities including cycling, hiking and kayaking.

MSC, winners of Cruise International’s 2014 Best for Wellbeing Award, leaves no hot stone unturned in its quest to please passengers, offering tennis, mini golf, volleyball and basketball, plus the opportunity to be thoroughly pampered in its Aurea Spa.

Celebrity Cruises is also a leader of the pack, with an extensive range of luxury treatments in its award-winning Canyon Ranch Spa.

Look out too for P&O Cruises’ Ventura, sporting Trixter bikes in its gym (the latest in indoor cycling) and a swim-against-the-current pool.

Princess’s larger vessels also offer pools with adjustable.
