  • What are the onboard gym facilities like?

    im set to go away on my first sea phase in around a month, just wondering (upon many other things i may ask in the next few weeks) what are the gym facilities like onboard ships you have been on and anyone who has been with zodiac what sort of equipment to expect.

    thanks in advance, Ciar

    First ship i was on had a wee multigym, spinning bike, treadmill (****ed), bunch of free weights and a bench. Second one had much the same, much better multigym, much heavier/more free weights, shiny new treadmill but no bike so it'll depend. Also, this was on a maesk ship where you're not allowed to drink so (apparently) they spend more on ps3s, gyms, books etc. Folk i know who are with zodiac had no gym but a lot more drink...

      What about on cruise ships, are you allowed to use the passenger gym facilities?

        Depends on individual cruise line (and in some case's ship) policy's...

        Usually officers are permitted to use it - although on some ships, for junior officers the time's that you are permitted will be restricted.

        Most cruise ships do have fairly large and well equipped crew gym's as well.
        ?Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn?t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.?

          Heard the Zodiac ships are fairly decent for gym equipment, can't tell you what exactly or whether it'll be working when you get there!

          I've experienced some well equipped gyms at sea so far, not that I've been using them... apart from ping-pong!

              Varies by ship. Ship I'm on at the moment just had bought in all new gym equipment: multi-gym, cross trainer, treadmill and rowing machine. Can't complain!
