But those aren't my favorite way to spend sea days. My all-time favorite way to spend a day at sea is to find a nice quiet balcony or window and tuck myself in with a good book. I can watch the ocean, drink my unlimited sodas, and do a whole lot of nothing! To me, that is the best part of taking a cruise!
Now if you are the more active type, there are certainly things to do. But from my perspective, I do plenty of "going" and "doing" during my real life. Vacation is my chance to get away from all that! Don't get me wrong, on my first day I will probably do my fair share of wandering around and exploring and acquainting myself with my options. And every night I will probably study my copy of the little on-board newsletter to find out what is going on the next day. But the chances of my actually doing anything I think about are slim to none.
I am very excited about the spa and the access to that stuff this time around. One thing I would love to do more of is hanging out in the hot tub. I usually spend at least a little bit of time there, but my preference is to be there when there aren't a zillion other people crammed in there with me! I'm thrilled about the stuff in the spa that isn't open to the whole world! I am thinking I may also treat myself to massage, because I have definitely earned that little treat!
This picture is a lot of Jeff's family on the last cruise hanging out on the lido deck. I anticipate spending at least a little time doing just this!
