You may think that you will have to join a gym when you get back from a cruise on the Norwegian Jewel when you browse the restaurants and see the food choices you have on the ship. However, this cruise ship also takes fitness very seriously and therefore has everything you need onboard to make sure you don’t pack on the extra pounds. You won’t have any difficulty continuing your workout regimen or starting one when you cruise to exotic destinations on this ship.

On the pool deck there are two pools where you can have your early morning swim to get your day started with exercising even before you have breakfast. This is a very popular location on the Norwegian Jewel during the sun-filled days at sea, so it may be a bit more crowded later in the day. There are also four whirlpools with awnings to provide you with shade from the sun and the children always love the water slide.

Body Waves Fitness is the main fitness center of the ship. It is located on Deck 12 and is open 24 hours a day allowing to take advantage of the state of the art fitness equipment at any time of the day or night. As you exercise on the machines, you have a magnificent view of the ocean through the floor to ceiling windows and there are individual televisions to take your mind off the fact that you are working out. Fitness classes with qualified instructors take place in separate rooms inside this center where you can take dance, aerobics, Pilates or Yoga.

Pamper yourself with an exotic treatment at the Bora Bora Health Spa and Beauty Salon. Treat yourself to a body wrap, a ginger salt glow or detoxify your both in the sauna or steam room. Robes are provided, but you have to bring your own sandals. There are separate changing facilities for men and women.

If you want to take a leisurely stroll, a brisk walk or a jog, there are walking and running tracks that encircle the ship. There is also a sports deck with bleachers where you can either play or watch a game of volleyball or basketball. Two golf driving nets provide you with the opportunity to hone your driving skills and there is also a shuffleboard court and ping pong tables.
