Carribean cruises presents the biggest cruise ship in the world the Liberty of the Seas!
Cruising the Caribbean aboard the biggest ship in the world, Liberty of the Seas, your first impression is that this ship is really huge I mean, really, really huge. This ship is almost four football fields long, more than half a football field wide and nearly 20 stores high. Liberty of the Seas has one sister ship, Freedom of the Seas, and will soon be joined by another floating city named Independence of the Seas. Food and vitality go together on this ship. Eat a lot and do a lot to take it off. The main dining room seats 2,000 at two sittings, but the 3 levels create a more intimate atmosphere.
The vitality part comes from the largest and best equipped fitness center you’ve ever seen at sea. Amazing number of modern equipment for every single muscle, plus yoga, plus Pilates and a boxing and skating ring. Outside you’ll find the biggest rock climbing wall at sea, a simulated surf wave, a basketball and soccer area, miniature golf, golf simulator, ping pong and shuffleboard. The heart of the ship is so called Royal Promenade. It stretches from the dining room to the theatre and is loaded with ten’s of stores of every description, along with restaurants and bars. Kids and teens win with the largest arcade at sea and entertainment zones for every age and teens even have their own night club. Liberty of the Seas is simply amazing!
Caribean Cruises presents Bye, bye to bigger bellies?
Sailing away on a cruise ship with a midnight buffet no longer means waving goodbye to your diet.
Keeping with the times, cruise lines are promising spa-like cuisine alongside the buttery lobster and piles of crab legs. The hope is that lighter selections will lure health-conscious baby boomers and others who fear being trapped at sea with a 24-hour pizza bar.
Royal Caribbean Cruises last year introduced its “Vitality” program, which weaves healthier meals and exercise into the sailing experience. Carnival Cruise Lines now has lighter dishes with nutritional stats on menus for hawk-eyed calorie counters. On Crystal Cruises, fresh fruits and whole grains are playing a bigger role on the buffet line. In the past year, most major cruise lines have tossed trans fats overboard.
“We’re hoping it will dispel the myth that a cruise experience is just about overeating. You can eat very healthfully, very creatively, and have a lot of wonderful choices,” said Mimi Weisband, a spokeswoman for Crystal.
While cruising is still a small portion of the travel industry, analysts say it’s poised to burgeon as legions of baby boomers retire in coming years. But capturing that new wave of cruisers means tuning into their lifestyle, which is increasingly focused on staying fit.
Adopting that good-for-you sensibility on board not only satisfies veteran passengers, but may entice new ones, said Robin Diedrich, a leisure analyst with Edward Jones in St. Louis.
The lighter foods and fitness choices are typically included in the cost of the cruise. On the Disney Cruise Line, that means breakfasts with more whole grains and low-fat yogurts. Crystal is paring down portion sizes and featuring more creative salads. Menus on Carnival cruises list the caloric information for “spa” dishes including: roasted banana panna cotta in citrus broth (150 calories), charred broccoli and cauliflower tortellini (190 calories) or red snapper over stewed fruits (290 calories).
Royal Caribbean in January did away with its midnight buffets, but the famed concept lives on in other ships.
Those looking to get moving on Royal Caribbean ships can consult virtual trainer kiosks and self-guided running maps for land excursions. One class takes passengers on a tour of the ship’s eateries, with pointers on the healthiest choices.
Whether passengers actually select the lean new plates, just knowing they’re available can help drown out second thoughts about boarding what, for many, amounts to a floating binge fest. Like a gym membership, having a “light” menu might massage away the guilt.
Judging from the orders so far, however, not many are exercising their right to eat healthy.
On Carnival Cruises, the “spa” choices only account for about 15 to 20 percent of appetizer orders. For main courses, they’re only up to 3 percent, said Peter Leypold, the company’s corporate executive chef.
Royal Caribbean says it doesn’t track usage of its new dishes and classes, but says they’re popular
