Fit for everything ... cruising is a great way to stay in tip-top condition

The second week of the Cruise Lines International Association's #ChooseCruise campaign, the focus falls on the wide range of sports and fitness options available to passengers whether at sea or on the river.

Says Andy Harmer, CLIA UK & Ireland director: “Cruise holidays offer an extensive roll-call of ways to get active, making it easy for passengers to stay in tip-top condition whether they’re in the middle of the ocean, sailing along rivers or visiting a port of call.”

#ChooseCruise is running across the UK cruise industry throughout September, and globally, across CLIA cruise lines in October. The campaign aims to highlight different onboard experiences at sea or on a river ship.

Harmer adds: “The latest generation of ships boast impressive state-of-the-art gyms and exercise studios that easily give shore-based alternatives a run for their money.

“Large ships will feature sports courts, where team players can join football games or basketball bouts, as well as indoor and outdoor pools, with some ships even featuring climbing walls and paddle tennis courts.

“Cruise lines have also caught on to the latest fitness trends with stretching sessions, meditation, dance lessons, aerobics, spinning classes and Pilates commonly offered across most ocean-going ships and river vessels.”

Activities aren’t just confined to ships either, as guests can choose from many active adventures ashore, whether hiking trips over mountain slopes, glacier-treks and kayaking adventures to the slightly less physically demanding city walking tours and biking excursions

“Cruise holidays offer so many ways to keep active that anyone looking to keep fit on their holiday can feel confident in doing so when they #ChooseCruise,” Harmer concludes.
