Losing weight, getting in shape, and exercising more top many people’s lists of New Year’s Resolutions, and Princess Cruises is introducing an expanded variety of onboard fitness classes to help guests do just that, even when on vacation.
The new classes include global fitness brands and offer something for everyone, with new options available now and more coming before the summer season begins.
Princess Cruises Expanding Fitness Lineup
While indulging in extra treats is a part of many guests’ cruise vacation, Princess Cruises is offering more options for travelers who want to work off extra calories so they can indulge guilt-free. New fitness classes will be available fleet-wide by mid-February, with additional options to be added before the busy summer sailing season.
“To many people, continuing their daily exercise routine on vacation gives license to extra special vacation indulgence, and Princess presents world-class options on both the fitness and indulgence fronts,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.
The new classes include exciting and energizing options whether guests are interested in burning off calories, improving their fitness, expanding on well-being, or just trying a new workout routine. The classes are being offered through leading studios from Xponential Fitness, and include Pure Barre, YogaSix, and StretchLab.

“Whether it’s keeping up with New Year resolutions, offsetting the incredible food and drink on board, or connecting with other fitness fans, we’re excited to offer the most premium and inclusive boutique fitness experiences in the industry,” said Padgett.
While not all guests may be familiar with the new brand names, classes are suitable for all ability and experience levels, and can be customized to each guest’s preferences.
Pure Barre classes are full-body, low-impact workouts that range from moderate to high-intensity, with a focus on both strength and flexibility. YogaSix is a full-sensory, accessible experience with different classes for strength, agility, flexibility, and balance.
