Staying Active Onboard

By DavidTuesday 06th December 2016

Play Sports Onboard




For those of you who like to keep active, there’s no need to worry about being idle when onboard; there’s a ton of sports you can get involved in during your holiday with us. From actual real-life surfing and ice-skating to shooting hoops or a family five-aside, there won’t be much of a chance for you to feel unmotivated. So when you’re zipping up your suitcase, you might want to pack that gym-kit and trainers. Available activities vary from ship to ship. Check online before you book to ensure you’ll have access to the facilities you fancy.

The FlowRider Surf Simulator

Catch some waves with our real-life surfing simulator and flow like a surfing pro! With 60,000 gallons of water rushing pumped out every minute, anybody from experienced surfers to first-timers are welcome to drop in, whether you want to try boogie boarding or traditional stand-up surfing. A ride on the FlowRider is included in your cruise fare – so you can ride as many times as you like for free! Morning sessions tend to be less crowded, but you can check your Cruise Compass for session times. Our friendly sports instructors are more than happy to help you learn some surfing techniques, and if you’re really eager to learn, you can book private a surfing session.
TIP: Guests must be at least 52"/132 cm tall to use the body board and 58"/147 cm tall to use the flowboard. Absolutely no footwear, goggles or go-pro cameras permitted.

Rock Wall

Get some of the best views onboard by scaling 200ft above sea level in the middle of the ocean. Fancy a challenge? Climb the wall as fast as possible in order to ring the bell at the top to let everybody know you conquered it. We have different walls for different levels of skill and provide advanced climbing sessions for well-versed climbers. Enjoy climbing competitions, tournaments and challenges for no extra cost. It’s fun for the whole family!
TIP: We provide all of the required safety equipment including helmets, harnesses and shoes. Just remember your socks! Climbers must be at least 6- years-old and sign a waiver before participating.
SeaPlex roller disco


With the SeaPlex onboard, you won’t get a chance to sit still! Family and friends can get involved in a great selection of games, sports and more, allowing you all to show your playful sides and build friendships over a game of basketball or dodgeball. If there isn’t an activity already scheduled in, you can jump in! The court is your oyster!
The perfect place for a 5-aside, the two-story structure is so huge you can see it from outside of the ship, making for some spectacular views. It’s bright and futuristic, transforming into a disco party after dark where you can dance the night away or take to the floor in roller skates. The perfect alternative to being outdoors, you have plenty of options to enjoy in the upstairs section, including ping pong, ice hockey and football tables.
For all of you acrobats out there, we also offer trapeze and circus lessons on some ships. Fancy running away with the circus? The SeaPlex is available on select ships only – explore our range of various onboard activities.

Sports Court

For those of you who fancy some fresh air, sports courts are available on-deck. These multi-purpose facilities offer basketball, volleyball and tennis games. Join your fellow passengers and cruise members in a game or two and make some new friends while staying onboard. Check your Cruise Compass to see which tournaments and competitions are scheduled during your stay.

Ice Skating & Dance Classes

Ready to put on your dancing shoes? Learn salsa, swing and ballroom with our professional dancers. If your moves are a little icier, you can glide on over to our onboard ice-skating rinks where you and the whole family can enjoy some winter-themed fun. It doesn’t matter whether it’s your first time skating or you’re a well-versed veteran; everybody is welcome to join in. Ice-skating and dance classes are available on selected ships, so contact our expert consultants to learn more.
TIP: Passengers are welcome to bring their own skates, but skates are provided for free onboard. Long trousers must be worn and passengers must sign a waiver to participate.
Anthem of the Seas

Running Track & Gym

Imagine going on your daily run with panoramic views of the ocean – what a way to start the day! We know that running is an important aspect of people’s everyday routines, so we’ve ensured that those of you who enjoy a jog can still have access to a running track. The track is open for use at any time and is split into two halves; one half for joggers, the other for walkers. We’ll help you work out how many miles you’ve covered per loop, so don’t worry if you have a competitive streak!
If you need a little bit more motivation to get working on your regime, our ships have a variety of gym equipment indoors for your use. Treadmills, elliptical trainers, bench presses, free weights – we’ll help you keep pumping that iron and beating your personal best!

Our facilities will keep you fit and healthy whilst you’re cruising with us. Activities vary from ship to ship, so make sure you refer to your fitness check-list before climbing aboard!
