Default Poll: What ship activity do you try not to miss?

Is there a particular one that is your favorite? Is there one that you try to avoid like the plague? Do you like to participate or just hang out and watch?

Right now my favorite activity sounds like seeing how long I can occupy a lounge chair while sipping on a cool drink....but I know myself too well...I canŽt sit that still long enough!

It might sound corny, but I like the Trivia contests they have in the bar/clubs after dinner. They pass out paper and you need to gather a group of 6 or so for a team. Since the two of us are usualy traveling alone, we find it a great opportuity to meet other couples. We've met so many great folks over the different cruises and would always agree to meet the next night, same place for drinks, laughs and trivia......(We've never won a prize, but have lots of fun)

For some strange reason I usually have good luck with the horse races, so I try to catch those when ever possible, have missed a few, but they are a lot of laughs in the process of winning/loosing :-)

Good thing there is the article at cruisemates about the horse races. I remembered seeing that and quickly reread it. Am now glad that Mr. Ed doesnŽt have to be tucked into my suitcase.

Island Night out on deck...except on Golden Princess, where they had the dance band and the lead singer in a sequined evening gown (?!@) singing standards and trying lamely to get the crowd in a party mood. Can anyone say "wedding?"

I'm a trivia nut (and competitive).

We got a big laugh on Princess when we named ourselves the "Dumb Ass Team."

After that, we like the future cruise talks -- fun to look at the videos and say, "Oh that would be fun."

One of the very few organized activities we saw was the New and Not So Newlywed game. It was hilarious, and I'll definitely try to go again if they have it. We laughed non-stop through it. I'm sure it helped that our CD, Dana Hodson, was a hilarious guy all by himself.

Interesting to hear what everyone likes to do!

Did find one activity that I will definately be doing.....hitting the spa! The prices are far cheaper than they are here, believe it or not!

IŽll have to get dh involved in the trivia contests. He loves to play Trivial Pursuit.

I never miss bingo or the slot tourneys. I also try to hit the trivia and karaoke.

I LOVE trivia. And I like the daily Q&A trivia. Queeg and I usually do quite well on those.

Last year, on a Trans-Atlantic, my sister-out-law and I were adopted by a flotilla of gay guys as we were travelling without our spouses.

Our teams were "Fruits Afloat" and "The Queens of Holland." It was a HAL cruise, which explains the "Queens of Holland " part.

We kicked a@@ !!! And it was a ton of fun.

Sadly, though, there were numerous people who had very nasty comments about "The Queers" who won every time.

Guess it takes all kinds.

Popping the cork of my favorite "smuggled aboard" bottleof bubbly as we ease away from the pier, toasting on the balcony and a nice smooch from my hubby!(maybe this qualifies as a cruise ritual - as we do this on every cruise!)

We were one of the four couples to participate in the Newlywed game on the Mercury 2001 cruise from Vancouver to Hawaii. They gave us a video to keep. As you can imagine there are some relatives we can never show that tape to. It was hilarious and we were celebrities on this Celebrity trip.

Try not to miss----embarkation

Try to avoid----debarkation

Somehow I've always managed to make it on board on time and get thrown back off again after 7 days.

I love trivia and participating in some of the "game show" events; love WATCHING the newlywed/not-so-newlywed game and other games.

The deck parties at night. But mainly sitting in a lounge chair watching the ocean listening to Buffet or the steel band playing on deck... Debbie

I have discovered Bingo and only do it on cruises.

On our AWFUL honeymoon cruise, hubby and I participated in the Newlywed game and won. The question that we won on was "What did your bride wear that first night. Well most of the other couples could not remember, but Hubby rememberd and did not stop talking until even the cruise director was turning red faced!!!

On our last Princess cruise I particpated in the hypnosis show, instant celebrity, but strange because all these people would come up to me and tell me how funny I was and I could not remember doing any of the things they said I did!!! Hubby got a kick out of that one.

And finally, standing in my hubby's arms as we sail away from the dock .

On Infinity, our group did the trivia contests, a few times during the week, and had a great time! Only problem was: each time we came thiiis close to winning, but never actually won.
We've decided we need to practice more, but only on cruises.
I also try to miss the karaoke -- as the mother of 2 very musical daughters (one a professional musician/music teacher, and the other a singer/dancer/actress), I know talent when I hear it, and I've seldom heard it at karaoke night.

Some of the things I try not to miss are Sail-a-way party, eating breakfast on our balcony when we have one, Horse racing, Island party, relaxing on our balcony at night after the shows, having a drink and watching to world sail by. It just don't get any better that that.
