A-Z Guide to Cruise Holidays 19Fitness CentreAll our vessels have a fully-equipped fitness centre
offering treadmills, rowing machines, exercise bikes and a variety of free weights. A choice of fitness classes to suit most levels is available throughout the cruise, including yoga, aerobics, stretch & tone and pilates, conducted by fully qualified fitness instructors. A small charge is made for some classes. The minimum age to use the fitness centre is 18 years.Additionally you may wish to 'smile a mile' (5 times walking around the deck on Black Watch equals 1 mile), swim a few lengths of the pool. Black Watch and Boudicca both feature state of the art SwimEX exercise pools. You can practice your golf swing in the nets on board all our vessels.After your workout, showers are available. You may then wish to relax in the sauna or steam room (Balmoral offers an infra-red hot room as opposed to a steam/sauna room).Fly/CruisingFred.Olsen Cruise Lines offer an extensive fly/cruise programme, including regional departures, details of which can be found in our main brochure. Should you have any special dietary needs it is important that we be advised at the time of booking. Most diets, with the exception of kosher, can be accommodated by the airlines. If you are in need of assistance at the airport it is important that you provide us with specific requirements for both the airport authorities and airline. This is particularly relevant if you are travelling in your own wheelchair.
