When you are sailing for free, there will be an overwhelming urge to gorge yourself on three serving of the lobster. Eight pieces of bread can easily be munched on while you wait for the salad. Of course, go for the triple chocolate sundae.

That OK by me. Heck YOU are also on vacation. But get prepared to come home a few pounds heavier. I used to gain 4 lbs on a 2 weeker. Oops. How to get closer to break-even? They all have a gym. But with so much going on, it’s easy to blow off the time to get to the treadmill. And most equipment is dominated by 23-year old hard-bodies.
My advice – NEVER take the elevators. Never. The average number of floors on ships is 12. You may be staying on deck 5, so guess how many calories you’ll burn going up and down…and up and down over 10-14 days. They say about four calories per flight of steps.
It’s fun to see a jammed elevator going up…and you see the doors open at every floor as you zoom past. You’ll usually beat them to your floor.
Sanitize your hands often – the handrails get a lot of bacteria. Did you see than woman sneeze then grab the hand rail??? Yuck
