Lots of people are afraid of sea days on a cruise, they think they might get bored. I personally love sea days, I always find that they go really fast and in no time they are gone! This is a list of my favourite things to do:
1- Hit the pool deck early!
I really enjoy to wake up, have breakfast, stop for a cappuccino and then hit the pool deck, outside if the weather is good or indoor pool if it is not. I like to get there early, find a good spot and enjoy the quite morning before most people wake up and have breakfast. I read, I check my emails, I relax.
2- Walk few times around the ship
Right before lunch time I really enjoy walking around the ship few times. Ideally I love to do it on a sunny day on the top decks, if it is raining or cold I don't mind walking indoor. While I walk I always stop and check the dinner menu at the main dining room.... always be prepared!
3- After lunch I go back by the pool for a little.
Most people are still eating and I enjoy the quiet pool, by now the pools have some music or some entertainment. I really enjoy that.
4- Trivia time!
I love trivia, I become very competitive at it and I love to play! I have several notepad and bottle opener that I won at trivia on a ship and I am very proud of that collection! 👍🏻🤓
5- My first glass of wine
After trivia it is usually late afternoon at it is time to have my first glass of whine while walking around the ship. We love to stop and talk to fellow passenger and crew members. We became very good friends with many of the photographer and the art auction crew member because of that. Sometime we love to walk around and find out a place where they give away free "Champagne", the jewellery store, the art store, the casino... it is almost like a game 🤣
6- Time to get changed for dinner
Time to go back to the cabin, shower and pick an outfit for dinner. If it is a nice sunny evening maybe we enjoy another glass of wine on the balcony, often talking to out neighbours! We became excellent friends with most of our cabin neighbours and we are still in touch.
7- Dinner time!
Before we go for dinner we get another glass of wine and we go for another stroll on the ship. We might hit a lounge for a bit, walk a little more, say hi to fellow passengers and crew members, poke our head in the casino, most of the time another glass of free "champagne" appears. By now it is time to hit the main dining room.
8- Show time!
After dinner we usually find a show that we like to watch. We walk around the ship few more time, we run into someone to chat for a bit and than bed time
WHERE DID THE DAY GO!
