Default Poll topic of the day: Favorite ship board activity?

Mine... relaxing on the pool deck, drink with little umbrella in hand, reading an excellent novel (preferrably Grisham), watching my lovely daughters splash about in the pool- husband eating pizza beside me with a big smile. Oh... this is living!

Hmmmmmmmmm.

Reading is good. (Give me a good Archy McNally mystery or a Dick Francis any time! -- Mind Candy)

The little tap on the door with room service breakfast as a wake-up call is a good start to the day.

I guess reading the dinner menu around lunchtime and planning the evening's feast and wine selection is right up there.

Sitting on the balcony (if we happen to have one), listening to either Jimmy Buffet or classical music (arguably, Buffet is classical) and watching the waves go by is also near the top of the list.

Just strolling around, sitting around, looking, people-watching ... all good things.

But the pizza? ICK !!!

I, too, enjoy just sitting, watching the wake and reading to Buffett. My favorite shipboard activity, though, is right after we board and drop off our carry-ons, when we first set out to explore the ship, knowing that the whole cruise is before us. Watching a spectacular sunrise as I do laps is way up there, too.

Tough question....Do I have to pick just one? Okay. Waking up every morning and remembering I'm on a ship!

I love room service, reading, the sound of the waves crashing against the side of the ship, being able to do something every minute, or napping away the afternoon....if I want too!!

But when I feel like just wasing away a sea day, I'll be honest here.......i just LOVE to go by the photo gallery and check out all of the photos! Come on y'all...we've all done it! It also goes along with my most embarrassing moment on a ship....laughing at a particularly funny photo with my brother...an older gentleman in plaid, with the worst carpet on his head, with his eyes rolled to the back of his head, with his wife trying to look sophisticated with food on her bottom lip (Formal night table photos)! We were dying laughing, walked around the side of the gallery, and ran into said couple. We instantly quit laughing, kept running to the nearest lavatory...just about wet my pants! Didn't teach me a lesson though....I still go to the gallery for a relaxing pastime!!!

Great Poll!

Sitting on the balcony and enjoying the smell of the ocean and the wonderful breeze.
(of course a boat drink in hand tops it off)

Watching people on the ship has always been quite entertaining.

We like to watch how the huge ships can dock - make it look so easy. Feeling the
sea breeze and enjoying the balcony with a book & a tropical thingee. The whole
atmosphere on a cruise is undescribeable.

Sitting as far aft on the ship as possible, watching the wake, drinking something nice and tropical, reading a good book, soaking in a hot tub or the thalassotherapy pool, checking out the lunch and dinner menus early in the day, getting involved in a good trivia game.................do I have to choose just one???

Sex on the private balcony with a gorgeous sunset as a backdrop. Even better if Mrs. Kuki is there too <G>

Unless there is a rare late deck party, I like to go up to the top deck of the ship late at night when everything is quiet , except for the waves, and have a cup or two of tea.

Okay, I can't believe I'll admit to this but when we were on the Baltic cruise with my inlaws a couple of years ago we all got hooked on bingo...our kids were 11 and 13 and looked forward to meeting grandma and grandpa everyday for bingo...my son won $150!
We had a rule that whoever won bingo bought champagne for the dinner table...my son didn't think that was such a great idea...until I reminded him that he wasn't paying for his own bingo cards!

I like sliding down the banister rails in the grand foyers, and flying kites off the top aft. decks of cruise ships.

Rix I can't wait to meet you. You have a devilish mind... Kites it will be.

Favorite for me is sitting around the pool with friends, people watching and chatting or sitting on the balcony reading a book. Of course, having my food cooked, beds made and being spoiled is pretty good too.

1. On the promenade with my wife in my arms on a Moon-lit night
2. Early in the morning when no one is up on deck top-side with my coffee, and watching the sun rise of the next port-O-call!

My Wife and I love all the shipboard activities but it would have to be sitting on the open deck below the life boats and listen to the ocean
