You can always go to the buffet and have some lunch, then explore the ship, swim, etc.

My first stop is the pool bar to get a frozen umbrella drink - too many years watching "The Love Boat" I guess. Then I explore the ship, first stop is the dining room, I like to see how it's set up and the closest bar to it since I usually like to have a glass of wine before going into dinner. Another place I like to go is the very front of the ship, as far up and outside as possible - this is a great place to be when the ship leaves.

For some reason, I never feel like I have enough time to enjoy the pool, maybe someday when I can get aboard early

For the few hours that most have before the shop sails, investigation, is the norm, I think...first and foremost eating lunch, then if you are are able to get in your cabin, frop off your carry ons....

Check out the dining room, see where your table is located,so, if it's not to your liking, for whatever reason, you can check with the maitr' d, to se about being moved.

Make spa, or salon appointments. If you are a wine drinker, check out the table set up, with selections, and wine packages available.

Hit the pool, relax, and, wait for the sail away party

Trip, with her book & tea!
