There's trivia contests, horse racing on the lido deck, men's hairy chest competition, galley tours, bingo, volleyball games, dancing at the pool, casino gambling, ....plenty of things to keep you busy if you wish. If not, there's ample opportunity to relax and chill out.
In addition to the above, there are usually poolside games and activities, dance instruction, cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, golf lessons (if the ship is so equipped) spa treatments, bridge tournaments, shuffle board, movies, FOOD, trivia contests , ping pong tournaments , shopping, casino, more food, sun tanning, reading and my personal favorate, DOING ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
The only problem with the day at sea is if it rains. Kinda boring then. Unfortunately it rained on our day and everything we had to do was inside. Not too much then because all the deck activities were cancelled.
There's so many things to do that I couldn't imagine being bored. There's a lot of different things to do, depending on what you enjoy doing. Hell, even if you just wanna relax in the sun and do absolutely nothing.
Day at sea was our favorite day of the cruise! Even if it rains, you'll find plenty of indoor activities.
