Going on a cruise. What should I do?
Hello all,

I'm leaving for a cruise on December 28th, which happens to be the start of my Core Cardio and Balance week for Insanity. The rooms on the cruise are TINY and we're squishing 3 people (including 2 large men in addition to myself) in this room, so I don't think I'll have the room to complete the exercises. What exercises can I do at the gym to make up for this week so I don't have to start the program over again?

Thanks in advance!

Why not ask a gym porter if you can take your laptop into the gym with you and play the Insanity dvd in there, ask/find a time when no one else is around, its only 37 minutes (if I remember correctly). Or, I'm sure your friends would be happy to give you 37 minutes to yourself in the room to do your Insanity if you told them, I imagine they're hardly going to be wanting to spend their entire time on a lovely big ship in a tiny cramped room....I've never been on a cruise, but I have always been under the impression that they are specifically aimed at accommodating peoples needs, and if its that sort, I am sure if you asked someone if there was anywhere... they'd try and arrange something for you.

I'm sure it will be fine,

HEY!

I travel only by cruise so, my insight. A) The gyms almost ALWAYS have cardio rooms. Look at the schedule and see when this room is free. Bring your lap top and have fun.

emoticon Cruise ships also have tonnes of public space rooms. If you are working out in the morning and the cardio room is unavailable, see if you can use the night club or some other room which has a designated dance floor to work out in. On the cruise ship we were just on, I used the night club in the morning because it wasn't being used.

c) Outer decks. There are ALWAYS top level walking decks or sports zones. When you get on the ship, use a map to locate these areas. There are usually quite a few...and hey, you'll get some sunshine when you work out.

If none of these ideas pan out, speak to the front desk or concierge on the cruise. Ask them for ideas. Failing that, and I don't know what kinda cruise you are on, you will most likely be in ports every day or every other day...... take your lap top with you on land and find a nice quiet park to work out in (or beach).

Cruise ships are REALLY accommodating.

Hope this helps!
