We have the same rule, unless I'm in heels. But since I almost never pack heels these days, stairs it is!

Thanks for input on the caviar - I won't worry about it if we don't experience it but will be excited if we do.

And I might even hit the gym. But it will be in the morning

I use the stairs too. The main staircase (circular on the deck plans) does get a lot of use, but the other staircases next to the lifts/elevators forward and aft don't see much footfall at all.

I'd recommend horse blinkers over sunglasses for furtive gym expeditions.

That sounds like a good premise for a comedy video or some memes.

yes but i like to match - so if i wore the blinkers i'd want to wear the saddle and the whip- and that might give out a mixed message to the fifty shades of grey meeting group... and would blinkers be smart casual or formal?

it reminds me of previous jumbo ship cruise where i ordered a bells and whistles smoke and light show drink- went to the bathroom thinking it would be ages - came back and my partner was being chatted up by a fellow passenger - i never read the daily bulletin outside of onshore offshore times etc - and music times - so hadn't realised this bar was a single and mingle meeting point every night.

so every night when i left them there with a fancy drink on order- some nice passenger would use the fancy smoked mirror drink as a starting point for conversation - was about 5 days before I discovered i was leaving them in the singles party...

i just thought god they must be looking well- they're getting loads of random attention....

Smart casual for plain ones. Formal for ones bedecked with Swarovski (sp) crystals.

Seriously, I hope this thread has put your mind at rest.
It's been good to have fun on a dress code type thread.

can't talk....busy on amazon trying to buy a glue gun and crystals ....can't you make everything formal with crystals

solves all my problems.

reminds me of another cruise with typo in sign by dining room ..." ladies must wear skirt with a top that compliments it" had images of blouses being extra nice and saying lovely things to skirts....

I tried to upload some pictures. They do not have spin bikes. The classes were more like movement and things like that but I did not really pay attention to that. 8 treadmills. About 6 bikes (3 regular and 3 recumbent) and 4 elliptical. About 6 or 7 technogym machines for various body parts and a multi-functional machines. Also dumbells etc. They do not have any equipment I use with my trainer at home like exercise balls, resistance bands etc. It is located in the spa on the stern of deck 10 with great views. Each cardio station has a tv and they supply headphones. It is interesting that there is only 1 scale on board that has to be shared between the men's and ladies changing rooms. It was never crowded. I usually went in late afternoon so I do not know how it was in the morning. Have a great trip.

Further, a good example of where everyone seems happy night and day is around the Sky Bar, another great Seabourn “event”. There you have all sorts of dress, walkers walking and gym users heading back to or forward to their cabins. I reserved my remarks for the Obs Bar, the Grand Salon, The Club and the restaurants where gym clothing would be out of place, if not to the oblivious wearer, then to everyone else.

Happy and healthy sailing!
Agree with you Markham. I stopped at the Sky Bar for my fizzy water after my workout, and never considered any other public areas until after I have showered and changed.

thanks empty nester...on a serious note- is there water and fridge for cold towels? i feel it helps in cooling red head- so as to look decent for dinner...

very brave of you to be looking for a scale on holidays...in my youth I might have done that - now as long as everything still zips and feels good- then i am happy.

Hi Bobtails12.....there is water kept in the fridge but no cold towels in the fridge. Maybe roll one up and put it on the bottom of the fridge before you do your workout?

I am like you, I check my weight quite often at home but refuse to look when I board the ship. I will worry about it when I get home . But using the stairs constantly and keeping active usually keeps the damage manageable.

thanks all.

i probably wouldn't put a towel in the water fridge- as could cross contaminate water bottles- and staff would get in trouble - but would do a ice bucket in sink in cabin with water for a bit of cooling face mini plunge.

thanks all for your help.
