I would shake things up a bit by introducing more new activities on board and changing the shows more often. When you see the same shows 4 or 5 times (not always the same ship, either), and hear the same jokes, see the spoon game etc., it can get a little boring.
When we started cruising 7 years ago, there were more audience participation type activities and we enjoyed those. There are still some, but not as many as before.
I would also love to see more evening activities onboard for dancing, with good dance music, not just the electric slide, but swing, foxtrot, etc. Some nights, the ships seem so dead that we walk around looking for something to do after the show.
I would like to see the pools open more at night, and earlier in the morning. We, older folks (60 & 61) would enjoy an early morning or late night swim, when all the bikini clad, heavy drinking, young people are either partying late or sleeping in.
