And if you can’t forego dessert or that plate of nachos between meals, at least make deals with yourself: If I eat that, I won’t take the elevators today. If I drink that, I’ll go to the gym for an hour, or sign on for a challenging shore excursion, like mountain biking, kayaking, or hiking. I’ll get seasick! Well, then you don’t have to worry about getting fat, do you? But honestly, folks, most cruise ships nowadays are so large and well stabilized that you can barely tell you’re on water. You probably won’t have any problems unless you’re extremely sensitive or the ship passes through rough water.

Most weeklong itineraries spend two days at sea, allowing you to do all the activities we just talked about, and spend the other four days visiting ports, where you can either wander off on your own or sign up for one of the line’s organized shore excursions. Generally you arrive in the morning and depart just after dinner — enough time to get a gander at the local sights, spend some time on the beach, head off into the woods looking for wildlife, or whatever it is people do in the hundreds of port cities and towns the cruise lines visit worldwide.

But don’t worry, it’s still a good deal, and the cruise lines are busy adding other new stuff besides ships, to make sure your interest stays piqued. Like what? Think new destinations, new activities on and off the ship, new dining options, and new entertainment. Some other trends? How about extensive refurbishments of older ships, bringing them more in line with what the newbies offer. Royal Caribbean got the ball rolling on this with its big 2003 refurb of the 1991 ship Monarch of the Seas, followed by redos of Empress, Sovereign, and Enchantment of the Seas — the latter of which was chopped in half and welded back together with a new midsection, increasing her size substantially.
