New research from an independent cruise ship comparison website has claimed that two thirds of Brits consume more calories when on a cruise than they would normally do at home.
The study, conducted by www.CruiseCompare.co.uk, polled 1,281 British holidaymakers to discover if and how their life changes whilst on a cruise holiday.
As many as 67 per cent of those surveyed said they found themselves consuming more than usual, while 34 per cent claimed they consumed an extra 1,000 calories or more every day whilst on board a cruise ship.
Comenting on the research findings, Danielle Fear, Managing Director of CruiseCompare.co.uk, said: “Cruise holidays are a time to relax, experiencing new places and cultures and indulge in a lifestyle that one can not normally lead in everyday life.”
“One thousand calories does seem an awful lot of calories, however cruise liners do tend to offer at least three courses with every meal; so it is easily done.”
