I've been on a cruise once. It was very enjoyable. The food was terrific. I never made it to the midnight buffet, I'm not much of a night owl. I did look at it was, but I was not hungry. Enjoy the cruise but don't forget everything you've worked for thus far. Good luck.
Having done 11 cruises, I can tell you that yes, there is lots of food, but you can manage to still have a good time and not gain too much, if any, weight. First off, you're cruising Alaska which tends to be a more active itinerary to begin with. All big cruise ships have fitness centers and the dining options include healthy choices. I've always made it a point to hit the fitness center at least on the sea days or find the deck that has a walking track. You don't have to suffer and skip dessert, just stay in control and you'll be fine.
Alright guys, I'm taking the wife on a 7 day cruise to Alaska this weekend. I've never been on a cruise, but all I ever hear from anyone is how much food there is. All I can think is, Oh, Cr@p! Am I about to undo all this weight loss progress?" I'm looking for some effective tips and advice for damage control while aboard. What can you tell me? Any suggestions?
