Cruising in Style
Andrea Gross | Sep 10, 2012, 6 a.m.
On those days I generally sleep through the 7 a.m. “Morning Stretch” held in the stylish Greenhouse Spa, and aim for the 8 a.m. tai chi class that is held on deck. But if I miss that, no problem. Most days there’s an aqua aerobics workout later. Some days I go to the Culinary Arts Center for a cooking demonstration or craft class. Other days I attend presentations on the world around us — a talk on pirates since we’re in the Caribbean, a discussion of Mayan Ruins as we approach the coast of Mexico.
My husband immerses himself in a high-energy regime that includes mega hours on the small basketball and tennis courts. Afterward, he goes down to the tech center where a master Microsoft instructor gives tips on everything from photo editing to PC security and cloud computing. Before dinner, we often watch a current film in the oh-so-comfortable movie theater and, in a brave attempt to burn calories, we race six laps around Deck Three, which equals a two-mile walk.
After dinner we generally eschew bridge and gambling, having learned we’re notoriously bad at both, and instead listen to live music in the Crow’s Nest or watch a stage show in the three-tiered auditorium.
By the time we get back to our cabin, we’re sated physically and mentally. Relaxing, we find, can be exhausting.
