or How NOT to Gain Weight on a Cruise
We’ve all heard the standard cruise joke: ” People go on a cruise as passengers but disembark as cargo”.
Cruise lines promote their cuisine, and so they should as it is designed by world famous chefs. We see it in promotional advertising, receive ship’s recipes by email, are greeted by champagne on embarking, have access to food 24 hours a day, and bar waiters are at our beck and call in just about every public area on ship (though I have never seen one in the gym or library…hmmm, good hiding spots). Special buffets are held at midnight with offerings so sumptuous that half your time is spent taking photos and the other half eating. Many cruisers, when asked, say they cruise for the food.
