I usually lose a pound or two. I am not a big fan of cruise cuisine so I stick with green salads, fruit, the occasional chicken breast, nuts, and eggs. I never take an elevator, don't drink sodas, and walk briskly for exercise.
I might have 2 alcoholic drinks on a 10 day cruise, almost never eat desserts, and drink water all day long. I never worry about calories as I eat healthfully most of the time and am at a healthy weight for my height.
