Default Poll: What Do You Like To Do On Sea Days?

Aside from enjoying tall cool drinks and lying in deck chairs by the pool, what activities do you like on sea days? I prefer working out and contests such as trivia and Name That Tune. Also, just wandering around the ship and checking out everything that is going on appeals to me.

Another thingI really like to do on any evening is find a piano bar where a bunch of people can get together and loudly sing a bunch of good old songs. Unfortunately, in 16 cruises, I have found only three ships where this occurred. On most of the rest, the pianist did all of the singing himself.

All of the above, but mostly sunning in a quiet part of the ship. I'm a reader. LOUD music should be for dancing-- I hate it around the pool.

We like to sit at the back of the ship and watch the wake. Relax in a hot tub and just enjoy peace and quiet.
We are not sun gods so, we might take a dip in the pool, but we don't stay long.........maybe a half hour and then go to the room, sit on the balcony and have a boat drink.

Sleep in, skip breakfast, read, go to lunch, go to the corny "Art Auction," meet a new friend or maybe two,go to the silly wine tasting with 500 of my closest friends, go for a walk, win a fortune in the Casino, do a reality check and count my dwindling traveler's checks, order cheese and crackers to go with red wine in room, go to dinner (more red wine), go for an evening stroll, listen to the Rosario Strings (when they are there) go to sleep ready for a busy day in port the next day.

I love just lazing around, knowing I don't have to do anything! Read a book, gaze out to sea, have a margarita, do some cross stitch, look out to sea again, stroll the ship and maybe have another margarita! I love to relax and there is nothing better than a good, brisk sit! Sue

Breakfast in bed is a must every day! Sitting by the quiet pool section and taking in the sun. Playing bingo and just relax, relax, relax.........

Get up early, walk a few miles around the promenade deck, photograph the sunrise and sunset, laze around, drink a piņa colada, be impulsive, listen to a Buffett cd or a steel band, watch the wake, read a good book, and wish I were in port, diving.

Hmmm. There are so many favorite things to do. On a sea day, if I get up in time, I enjoy having breakfast in the dining room, or at least a leisurely one from the buffet. Of course this must occur where I can see mother, mother ocean drift by. Then a couple of hours out on the top deck, chair positioned so I can see either the pool activites or the ocean, with maybe a book or a magazine, are always in my game plan. This is when I enjoy a frozen tropical drink, instead of my usual beer. A little caribbean music in the background, and I KNOW I am not in Texas anymore. Lunch, possibly a ship activity such as the Not-so-newlywed game, a nap, maybe stroll/sit and relax on the promenade deck, again close by the sea, is perfect. Then the usual evening activities.

Mini golf and treasure hunt through the ship is fun... as is kite flying<G>

Sea days are my absolute favorites in the Caribb. Not having to rush anywhere is always a treat, and something VERY rare at home, so it's one of those special "Ya I know I'm cruising" things.

I could spend my entire day relaxing at different places on the ship and just watching the people, and talking with who ever happens to pass by. It's truly amazing how much more relaxed, receptive, and friendly, people are (including me) on a sea day, as compared to being on land.

I enjoy meeting new people onboard the ship by just stopping and talking or joining in something like volleyball or basketball.
