Walk On Water / 360° Promenade Deck

The program includes customized motivational music-driven audiotapes, a day-by-day guided walking program, and educational instructions on how to walk safely and effectively on deck.
Nordic Walking Program
Crystal Cruises is committed to offer fitness-minded guests a variety of innovative wellness programs, including our new Nordic Walking Program by exclusive provider LEKI USA, a leading manufacturer of skiing, trekking and Nordic Walking Poles.
Specifically designed to engage the entire body, Nordic Walking Poles feature rubber tips to push off various surfaces like our wide teak decks, and help distribute stress while walking, increase stability, improve balance, and alleviate the steady impact of running and jogging, while offering similar benefits. Using these innovative poles exercises both the upper and lower body while walking, adding to the cardiovascular benefit and burning up to 46% more calories than walking without them.
Nordic Walking Poles are available, complimentarily, to guests to use aboard Crystal Symphony and Crystal Serenity and are also available to purchase by contacting the onboard fitness director.
