I have to agree with Arthur. I enjoy cruising for cruising sake. I do not need to be entertained 24/7. If I want to shop, climb walls, ice skate, surf, I can do that at home. I enjoy the long, lazy cruises, days at sea, and yes, just sitting in a deck chair and reading a good book while glancing now and then at the beautiful ocean and just being on the ship. To me, this is what cruising is all about.
