Actually, they're not a joke if that's what you enjoy doing! It's true that there is little time for the ice skating, but the rock climbing wall is open most of the time, and many, many people love it! 8)
I rarely leave the ship when in port,,,,the ship is the holiday that I enjoy, rather than seeing ports again, that I've seen over, and over again. The ship is wonderful when everyone else is ashore. I can have any lounge chair I want, don't have to wait in line at the buffet, and can spend as much time relaxing and enjoying the hot tubs as I wish. To each his own.
