Staying active and in shape on a cruise is both easy and difficult. Easy because the possibilities are there; both in the form of dedicated staff and equipment. Difficult because there are lots of other nice things to do too - both aboard and land!

Some stops are ideal for cycling, for example, here at Porquerolles. Photo: Heidi Rovén.

If the shipping company then makes it easier for one thing; that the training / sporting activity does not cost anything, you have certainly barrier out of the box. When we last sailed with Star Clippers largest ship, Royal Clipper, they had several fun activities - completely free of charge for their guests.

In addition to water sports, it was possible to borrow beach tennis and balls, which our minimum liking liked. Photo: K. Scheiderbauer.
Svenska Anna who worked at Royal Clipper's sports team played smoothly with our little Theo, 2 years.

SUP, kayak or dinghy

During the week I tested, among other things, SUP (Stand Up Paddling), paddling kayaking, mast climbing and joining the morning pimp on board. The sports team consisted of three people; two guys and a swedish girl that I actually interviewed - more about it later.

Hm ... does not look like I need to do anything, he can do that ...
The sports team will help you and make sure you get started and away. 🙂
Tjoho, this was fun!
A little witty for me who are a beginner at SUP but very fun to have tested! Photo: Kristofer Scheiderbauer.

The service from the sports team was really good; Every morning at 8 there was the morning tire on the deck that Swedish Anastasia held in, and at all destinations where possible, they landed their water sports equipment for the guests so that you could come to the beach and try if you wanted to. It was just borrowing what was available and getting help getting started with everything. Some days you could also do the water sports directly from the ship (see the picture at the beginning of the post).

Morgongympa with Swedish Anastasia raised the body.

Climbing in the mast was something I had dreamed about! Challenging, because it quickly feels much higher from above the rope than the bottom of the deck, but a lovely feeling when it's done. 🙂

I tried to climb into one of the five master ships - fun and fun! Photo: Kristofer Scheiderbauer.
We were many who wanted to try "mast climbing". Someone turned when the height of fear took over. Photo: K. Scheiderbauer.

For those who want to train even more, there is also one - for the size of the ship - a pretty big gym at Royal Clipper. Cool with all the rounds of small windows where you can see the fish swim by chance. Unless otherwise, the turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean give a wonderful feeling to the gym and exercise!

The gym was well-equipped, keep in mind that this is on a (but large) sailboat!
Through the round windows you can spy on the marine life below the water. 🙂

Cruises with yoga

Sometimes Star Clippers also has dedicated yoga cruises with yoga passes on deck. It must be magical to start the morning with a sunshine to the sea!

Staying active and in shape on a cruise is both easy and difficult. Easy because the possibilities are there; zowel in de vorm van dedicated staff and equipment. Difficult because there are lots of other nice things to do as well - both aboard and on land!

Water sports free of charge

Hvis cruise-firmaet gør det lettere at tage den rette beslutning, det hjælper; for example by offering training / sports activities for free. When we last sailed with Star Clipper's largest ship, Royal Clipper, they had several fun activities - completely free of charge for their guests.

I løpet av ugen har jeg bl.a. testet SUP (Stand Up Paddling), kayaking and the morning fitness class. The sports team consisted of three people; two guys and a swedish girl that I actually interviewed - more about it later.

De service was erg goed; Every morning at 8 there was a morning fitness class on the deck with Swedish Anastasia, and at all destinations where it was possible, they offered water sports equipment for the guests from the beach or directly from the ship.

Workout while looking at fishes

For those who wanted to exercise even more there is also a gym - quite a big one too keeping in mind this is on a sailing ship. Det var også fint med alle portholes (det var faktisk undervandshull) som du kunne se fisk svømning på. De turquoise blauwe wateren van de Middellandse Zee hebben ook een fijne gevoel gegeven in de sportschool.

Sometimes Star Clippers also has dedicated yoga cruises with yoga classes out on deck. Det må være magisk å starte morgen med yoga med havudsikt!

Here are some dates for those who are interested in a cruise with a health theme;

August 18 - Western Mediterranean Sea (Rome - Cannes) with yoga

August 25 - Western Mediterranean Sea (Cannes - Rome) with yoga

September 8 - Western Mediterranean Sea (Rome - Rome) with yoga

September 15 - Western Mediterranean (Rome - Cannes) with yoga

September 22 - Western Mediterranean (Cannes - Cannes) with fitness, lifestyle and coaching.
