Default Poll - So what's your favorite activity during sea days?

I think I enjoy most just sitting on an aft balcony - reading, listening to Mr. Buffett, with a "boat drink" in my hand - and lifting my head once in a while to see the wake. A close second is photographing sunrises and sunsets.

I knew there was a reason we go along Tom, tha's my plan for the Grand Princess in about 3 weeks! I won't have an aft balcony (although I'm still hoping for an upgrade from my outside guarantee) but the rest sounds great.

Too bad they don't have a shipbuilding contest, I've got another design I'd like to try

Agreed! Give me the balcony, something to 'whet my whistle' and plenty of time to enjoy the ocean. The book is usually in hand but it becomes difficult to open once the gaze is towards the sea.

Sleeping!!! lol An hour of getting some sun, a little food, some nice tropical drinks and a good book in a nice shaded area for the rest of the day.

Sitting on the balcony, listen to nothing but the ocean slapping against the hull and then falling asleep for a brief nap.
Don't even want to hear music or anything else, just peace and quiet.
:o)
There is so little of that here.

If weather permitting, you will always find me up on the pool deck, if not catching some activity on the ship, watching a movie I haven't seen, possibly eating a bit more than usual.

I love the spa. On my last cruise I had three treatments, that included a facial, pedicure and massage. The spa on the Celebrity ships is wonderful. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional. It's worth the cost

Oh I love sea days!

Mornings are spent taking awhile to dress and enjoying a leisurely breakfast. Afternoons in a pool chaise with 4 towels in use -- one for my neck, my lower back and two on the chair ... just reading a good biography and chatting with Art about this and that and relishing not doing *anything*. Late afternoons, a gin and tonic on the balcony while Art watches a movie on TV, then a nap for about an hour. Then up to get dressed up, enjoy dinner and see the show.

LORD, HOW MUCH LONGER TILL MY NEXT CRUISE??!!??

Phew, got a balcony booked in October on the Carnival Spirit (Three sea days!)!

Relaxing on deck with a good book (or on our balcony if we have one) and watching the wake is right up there just add an occasional dip in the pool or hot tub.

I love sitting on the balcony with a good book watching the ocean just slip by. I donít think there is anything about taking a cruise I donít enjoy with the exception of getting off the ship.

On sea days I enjoy exploring the ship and joining in on either the volleyball or basketball games onboard.

Getting up at dawn (I'm an early bird) and watching the sunrise from the deck. I'm usually up there by myself and it's as close to heaven as you can get. Then coronas and a chaise lounge for the rest of the day!

I love sitting on the balcony with my hubby and watching the ocean go by or reading a book. The peace and the quiet.
I enjoy walking around the ship, and the dinners and meeting lots of new people.

Easy! I head for the gym fairly early and after a great workout hit the steam and sauna. Little time with the better half by the pool and then a lite lunch and after some time in the hot tub and hanging out with the Mrs it is back to the steam and sauna, then cold shower and ready for a great evening full of activities!

Watching my husband lie by the pool smoking his telephone pole size 60 ring cigar, reading a book a day. Working out in the gym every other day, walking at least 6 miles a day (to counteract all the eating and drinking), having a small 1 quart cocktail before dinner on our balcony, dinner, then, in spite of our best intentions, falling asleep.
Best part of sea days --- no cares !!
