I think you'll find there are many runners on board these ships -- usually from one restaurant to another! I'm heading off to the Baltics where I'm sure the peace and tranquility will be conducive to running.
I can't see why this needs the "HELP". You can run all over the place in the Baltic and save yourself a fortune in sightseeing fees, apart from St. Petersburg where I wouldn’t even consider it. Nothing to stop you elsewhere, just remember to take your ship's pass with you and possibly a photocopy of your passport back page. On sea days most ships have a jogging deck or there is a running machine in the gym. Take your gear... Neil.
Thanks for that, Neil and Ida. I am certainly taking my gear, so that I can tuck into the food without feeling too guilty!
I'm a nervous female who worries about running solo in new places (even in the UK!) and I'd also prefer to be away from busy roads. With limited time in each port (apart from St Pete's, ironically) I'd rather have my routes pre-planned if possible.
I have now been informed that the beach at Warnemuende is perfect, also the Tallinn to Pirita cycle track. In Copenhagen it looks as if I could just follow the waterside path. May just use the rowing machine for an alternative workout when at sea, as I really HATE treadmills and couldn't bear the thought of running 20 times around the deck either.
You can run around the ship on the decks!! yes i have just come back from a baltic p & o cruise lovely!!!! enjoy.
All ships have some sort of deck space on which you can run. However, it is very antisocial to run on deck before 8am as the cabins below will not be well enough soundproofed to blot out the thumping feet. The Baltic trip is great. I did it on the Saga Rose 3 years ago and we had temperatures over 70 every day. (So much for stories of the Frozen North). Have a good time.
