Cruising is expected to reach record levels with British holidaymakers in 2010 despite the continuing tough economic conditions. Bigger ships, more choice and better deals have opened up this market to a wider, and younger, audience and it seems that those who have tried it for the first time are coming back for more.
The future of cruising is about to really take off with the arrival of an incredible new style of ship, such as Royal Caribbean’s 5,400 passenger ship ‘Oasis of the Seas’ which is due to launch later this year. This mammoth floating paradise is a holiday destination in itself never mind the ports of call that it take in whilst you are aboard. Cruising is set to change beyond all recognition.
The image of formal dining and overindulgence in food, food and more food is being replaced by a much healthier, sporty and more active alternative. Most ships now offer first rate fitness studios and health spas as standard plus you’ll also find an increasing array of sporting facilities from running tracks, climbing walls and tennis courts to wave riders and golf centres.
Good news then for fitness professionals who fancy a bit of the high life on the high seas and want to earn a living at the same time.
