sounds like my Mariner of the Seas cruise last fall! same problem by the pools on sea days. Apparently no one was interested in ice skating or rock climbing or minature golf! I wasn't either myself! but that taught me a lesson why go on a ship that has a bunch of extras I am NOT interested in doing. If you are a "veg by the Pool" type person-you do better to pick a ships that has nice big pools.
I also like the smaller, older ships-except for the fact they don't have balconies unless you book an expensive suite.
