Most cruises have a great at-sea fitness center.
I am going on a cruise in April for my honeymoon, and I FULLY plan to enjoy the food aboard. I also, however, fully plan to take advantage of the wonderful exercise opportunities aboard. After all, how many times will you have the chance to work on an elliptical overlooking the ocean? Or jog on an open-air jogging track with the sea air around you? It is a RARE opportunity that I plan to take advantage of, just as I plan to take advantage of the food options I normally don't keep around or cook in my own home.
Are you taking any shore excursions? Are there active ones available? You'll burn a heck of a lot of calories, for example, taking a kayaking or snorkeling or walking excursion. Most cruise companies offer active, fun, and imaginative excursions that'll burn PLENTY of calories. And as you mentioned, all of the walking around the ship will help too.
Now, thats no reason to go WILD on the food (three desserts every night isn't a good idea), but you can absolutely try to make it a very active vacation and still take advantage of all of the wonderful food aboard.
