Default Training for a marathon while on the Ecstasy

Does anyone know if the ecstasy has a track? I will be in the midst of training for the Houston Marathon in January. Our cruise in Nov. 12-17. I have my long runs scheduled for the day before we leave & the day after we get back but I will still need to to at least 3 45-60 minute runs (plus weight training) while on the cruise. I HATE treadmills & am hoping there is a track to run on.
Thanks for any info. you all can provide!!!!
Pam

All the Fantasy-class ships have a nice track. Just take the forward elevators all the way to the top (Sun deck) and you're there. Also, take advantage of the great spa/gym facilites one deck down (Sports deck). Just turn in your sail-n-sign at the spa desk for a locker key, free weights, nautilus, sauna, steam room, showers/towels all free of charge. The view from up there is fabulous!

Thanks for the replies! I am so happy to hear they have a track, it will save my kness. I am looking forward to taking advantage of the gym facilities as well. I'll have to train a little extra to keep the weight down from all the food I KNOW I will eat!
