Fitness takes on a whole new meaning when you take a cruise on the Original Ocean Village. Working out in the gym at home or going for a walk or a jog in the park will never be the same again. Whether you work out on a daily basis or just from time to time when you get a chance, you will find everything you need to keep you fit and healthy on this ship.

The floor to ceiling windows in the gym afford such fantastic views that you won’t even realize how much time has passed once you get started on one of the many pieces of modern fitness equipment. In addition to the rows of stationary bikes, you can try out a spinning bike, walk a few miles on the treadmill or step your way into fitness on the stairmaster. Trained instructors offer a variety of classes in different types of fitness routines, such as Pilates, Yoga, aerobics and spinning.

Hire a personal trainer for a one-on-one workout experience. This person will design a workout program just for you that you can continue to follow once you return home. Take a walk around the deck where there is plenty of room to go as fast or as slow as you please without interfering with the other passengers.

The Karma Spa, of which the gym is a part, spans two decks and includes state of the art treatment rooms. There is also a thermal spa, steam rooms and a womb room where you can sit in egg-shaped chairs and meditate. Enjoy the relaxation rooms where you can wrap up in a warm blanket as you drink in the sights of the ocean as you sail along.

There is an additional cost for any of the treatments at the spa but the use of the fitness equipment in the gym is free for all passengers to use. If you do plan to take a class, there is usually an extra fee involved in this as well.

There are two pools as well as hot tubs on the top deck of the Original Ocean Village where you are also entertained by acrobatic shows during the day. You may have the pool all to yourself early in the morning though giving you the perfect opportunity to start off your day with a swim.
