Find losing weight a total bore? One company has come up with a novel way to make the battle of the bulge a bit more fun - by launching a 'diet-themed cruise'.

The 11-night Mediterranean and Atlantic cruise will include a team of expert nutritionists, dieticians, and a specialist physician, all trained in the Dukan Method, and guests will also get the chance to meet health guru Dr Pierre Dukan himself.

You'll receive a Diet Kit, and undergo a personal health assessment at the start of the cruise before being advised on individually-tailored diet and sports training programmes.

There will also be daily workshops, culinary demonstrations, cooking lessons and themed conferences.

Even the excursion and city walking tours will form a part of the diet programme, according to Travel Mole.

MSC Fantasia departs on 30 January from Genoa, Italy, but you'll need to scrub up on your French if you want to take part.
