Running on the NCL Jade

Arthur and I took a western Caribbean cruise on the Norwegian Jade after Christmas, celebrating New Year's at sea.

We stopped at five ports during the cruise, book-ended by two sea days.

I had a couple of low-mileage runs on board during those sea days. The jogging track on the Jade is pretty short (332 yards) and I found the running got tedious rather fast. I managed one early morning 2-miler and a late morning 3-miler during our holiday. I was going to skip the second run but when Arthur and I walked up to the sports deck I was inspired by all the runners getting in laps in the late morning.

For cruise ship running, you can count the laps you run or use the lap function on your GPS watch. I used the lap function so I didn't have to count -- I just tapped a button on my watch each time I passed my starting point.

Anyway, here are some photos.
