When your river cruise vacation starts, it doesn’t mean your wellness routine has to stop. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle has become essential for many travelers when choosing their river cruise. Here’s how to do it:
1. Work out with a view. AmaWaterways features "Wellness Hosts," who teach morning and afternoon group classes in stretching, cardio/core strengthening and resistance band workouts on the Sun Deck, weather permitting. Other classes on select sailings may include yoga, Pilates, dance classes or circuit training.
2. See Europe on Wheels. Biking and hiking excursions are offered on several river cruise lines including AmaWaterways, Avalon Waterways, and Uniworld. Take one of the guided bike tours to local historic sites and villages for a scenic change of pace.
