Step it up at Sea
Step It Up at Sea
With huge amounts of drink and eateries on-board the common conception of going on a cruise is piling on the pounds. We are here to tell you, that doesn’t have to be the case.
Here at The Cruise Counter we always see that our customers want to maintain a healthy lifestyle whilst on holiday. We have created a list of our handy tips for staying active on a cruise.
Nearly every cruise ship has a gym – these training facilities are not your usual run of the mill but usually consist of state of the art equipment and experienced and professional staff. You couldn’t get bored of your view from the treadmill when you are looking out at the ocean or your next port of call.
Port Excursions – Depending on your voyage there will always be an array of excursions to choose from in each port of call. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of excursions that involve sun, sea, sand and sangria. Yet for the Bear Grylls amongst us there is everything from hiking the sub-tropical rainforest to exploring an arctic glacier. I find a mix of both is healthy for me.
Day to Day Sailing Life – For most cruise ships nowadays they are extravagant, from their style and service to their overall magnitude. From my cruising experience any first-time cruiser will have a ‘see it to believe it’ outlook on the size of a cruise ship. Whether you are making your way from your cabin to breakfast or from dinner to the theatre you won’t even realise the steps you are clocking up as you take in everything your cruise ship has to offer.
The track – there is now rarely a cruise ship without a designated walking or running track. For those of you who really are motivated or simply have just over-indulged there is always the opportunity to walk or run off those extra pounds.
Being of the same opinion as those customers desiring to maintain a healthy lifestyle we have decided to not only help you do so but give you the chance to win a prize by stepping it up at sea.
For those of our customers who have received their first reward of the Cruise Counter Gift Set you will now own your first, or possibly second, pedometer. What we ask from you is simple.
Once you check into your cabin, activate your pedometer by removing the clear plastic tab on the side.
Carry your pedometer with you as much as you can when you are out and about, the more steps the better.
During your cruise whether it be on-board or in port take a picture of the place you enjoyed walking and exploring the most.
While waiting in the airport, train or bus station on your final journey home take a picture of your pedometer with your final step count.
Finally send us your 2 pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on our Facebook with them.
On the 1st of December all your hard work will pay off when the entry with the highest, confirmed step count, with pictures will win a £100 high street voucher to replace those worn out trainers. Terms & Conditions Apply as always, contact us on email@example.com for all the fine print.
