Thanks to Carnival Cruise line for sponsoring our family cruise trip and this post on Carnival Cruise Gym and Fitness. All opinions are my own. Tim of ReviewDad.com writes for us today. We didn’t always have a camera with so thanks to Carnival for use of the photos.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man, I’d really like to go on a cruise, but how will I maintain my fitness regimen?”
Yeah, me neither.
But if you are a person with an active lifestyle, you don’t need to sacrifice your routine to enjoy your vacation at sea. Carnival’s got you covered.
Carnival Cruise Gym and Fitness
From a walking/jogging track and outdoor sports recreation areas, to full-featured gyms on every ship in their fleet, Carnival has a variety of fun ways to stay fit. There are even fitness classes! Yoga, pilates, indoor cycling, boot camps – whether you’re looking to maintain your everyday burn, or looking to try out something new, you’ll find plenty of options aboard the ship.
I’ll be honest; my personal effort only extended to sometimes taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and walking the upper deck to watch the beautiful sunrise each morning.
My son, Caleb, is a different story. Being an extremely energetic 12-year-old who is used to spending his days playing sports and running around with friends, he was the child I was most concerned about possibly being bored during our cruise. As it turns out, I had nothing to worry about.
Once aboard the Carnival Liberty, Caleb wasted no time exploring the various outdoor activity offerings. Our first morning at sea, Caleb said, “I’m going to make a new friend today.” I just smiled and said, “OK, buddy.”
I mean, what are the odds that he’d make a new friend his own age, within hours of embarking? Pretty good, I guess, since Caleb made not one, but two new friends that first day. Together, they spent a good portion of our ship time playing basketball, miniature golf, and ping pong.
Caleb was so active during our cruise, he slept like a baby every night. If you’ve got a super active child with the attention span of a gnat, you know what a blessing it is to find outlets for their abundance of energy.
Caleb is still talking about all the fun he had playing basketball every day. So thank you, Carnival, for keeping him active – and his parents sane!
The rest of us even got in a few games of mini-golf and bean bag toss!
