Actually, I'm pretty much like Henry. Except that since I've only gone to the Caribbean and on the same itinerary three times, after the first time, the ports didn't intrigue me except the time we went to Bermuda. That was fascinating.

I even bought a pictorial history of the liner Queen of Bermuda and had a great discussion with the staff at the Dolphin sanctuary. The museum is also unparalleled when it comes to learning the history of the island in a rapid manner.

I like those as well. And I will add, having a drink in the evening while sitting in the veranda when the moon is out.

on a:neutral: normal:neutral: cruise my favorite activity is having a drink of the day on deck at sunset when leaving port with my GF
on the 8)smooth jazz cruises8) my favorite activity is the nightly midnight allstar jam sessions where musicians freestyle (sit in) and you often see unusual combinations playing together (i.e. Jim Petricik (Eye of The Tiger, Vehicle) playing guitar with Greg Adams (founder Tower of Power) on trumpet) with Heather Headly (Grammy Award Winner singer) performing Bob Marley's famous song "I Shot the Sheriff" ...followed by having pizza on the lido deck at 0300 am with my GF

I love all the activities noted above, but my favorite is singing in the Talent Show, or Legends Show, or at karaoke. The new "Singing with the Live Band" is going to be a lot of fun as well, I'm sure. (Haven't done that aboard ship, except in the Passenger Talent Show, but look forward to doing it aboard "Dream".) Love just sitting near the aft pool, listening to GREAT music on the I-Pod, and watching the pretty ladies around the pool. (Don't tell the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) I said that.)

My favourite shipboard activity is Trivia. My favourite thing to do is lie in the sun by the aft pool listening to MY music on my MP3 player and dipping in the pool whenever needed.

My favorite activity on board is to find a quiet deck chair, read a book and watch the ocean.

All kidding aside mine is to just sit on my balcony late at night watching the stars and waves with or without a buzz! Nothing can compare to this for me. Oh how I can't wait.

My favorite cruise activities are meeting people, sightseeing in the ports and of course, shopping in the ports.
