Locations in this article:  New Orleans, LA

Big cruise ships have the reputation of catering to overindulgence…especially when it comes to eating and drinking. So when planning for your weight-loss goals, how about a guilt-free cruise that may actually be good for you?

The Holistic Holiday at Sea is a voyage that’s geared to improving your entire well-being.

The cruise will sail to the Eastern Caribbean in March aboard Costa Cruises.

Along the way you’ll have the chance to dine on organic foods and learn from some of the world’s leading alternative health professionals, research scientists and macrobiotic healers.

Instructors also teach classes in yoga, Pilates and meditation.

The Fun and Fitness Travel Club hosts a number of cruises running through September 2010.

You can choose from a variety of itineraries, but each features plenty of classes in aerobics, yoga, tai chi, and stretching that will whip you into shape.

And get this…Richard Simmons will personally teach all the exercise classes on the Carnival Triumph “Cruise to Lose 2010.”

Passengers can attend motivational seminars, learn about healthy eating habits and reach your fitness goals as you cruise from Simmons’ hometown of New Orleans to the ports of Belize City, Roatan and Cozumel.

And yes, that cruise does involve a real-life sessions to Sweatin’ to the Oldies.
