    Are covered shoes required to use the exercise machines?

    I'm wondering if Crocs would be okay. I use my Crocs at home on the stair master and if I don't have to pack my running shoes that's one less thing to pack.

    Thanks,
    Jen

    I don't know.. I'd like to know as well. I have sandals and high heels that I am taking. My sandals are sports sandals so I can use them for the elliptical machines and such. If I need to wear sneakers, I can wear them on the plane or such.

    I didn't see any signs when I used the treadmills. I doubt if they would stop you from wearing Crocs. The treadmills are awesome, and what a view!

    There were no signs? I used the gym at CSR, and I was politely reminded that I needed sneakers. They however let me use the elliptical machine with my sport sandals, but was told I could not lift weights with the sandals.

    Thanks for the heads up on the stairmaster, Moet.

    Anyone know the answer to the covered shoes?

    Thanks,
    Jen

    It's a safety issue. Why risk an injury that might put a damper on your vacation week? Close toed/ sneakers provide SUPPORT and PROTECTION. They will protect you from the "moving parts" of the machines should you loose your balance. "High tailing" it at sea can definately put more stress on your balance. And proper support will keep you from twisting your foot or ankle more so than sandles or even crocs.
    If it's a packing issue and not having enough room in your suitcase, stuff your shoes with things like belts or socks. (This can only be done if your sneeks don't smell :teeth: . Any hey if they stink, time to get a new pair! :rotfl:

    A couple of years ago I forgot to bring my tennies and they would not allow me to use the gym equipment wearing sandals, merrels (which are fully enclosed slip-ons) or watershoes. I had to have tennis shoes, according to the gym. I don't know if it has changed since then, but the last cruise I made sure to pack my gym shoes.
