What is there to do on those days at sea? The itinerary for a 7day cruise (Liberty) has 3 days at sea and I'm not sure what there is to do.

There will be various activities on each Sea Day.

Trivia, contests of various sorts etc

The Capers each day will have the time and location of each activity.

However, I just love to sit there and watch the sea go by. (and people watch)

well there is quite a few things to do, you can go to the pools, there will probally be some bingo games and maybe a show or 2. When I went on the canrnival elation, druing the days at sea there was dance lessons that the dancers taught, that was really fun. You can do a bunch of different things on days at sea. Trust me you will bever be bored during the days.

If this helps please respond to baby-balouga@hotmail.com Glad to be of help

I've come to the point in my cruising life where I enjoy the sea days more than the port days.

There are pools and hot tub, a spa, shopping, 10+ bars and lounges with different entertainment. Vegas style shows, both song and dance and comedians.

Bingo and a belly flop contest. Steel drum band playing caribbean music on the pool deck. Ping pong tables, an arcade. And last but certainly not least, FOOD! Everywhere, all the time.

I'm sure I missed about a hundred things like the art auctions I'm not at all interested in. But you get the idea. One of my favorite things to do is grab a lounge chair, a cup of coffe and a book. Sit out in the sea breeze on the deck and just RELAX. Soon enough I'll be back at the phones and faxes and answering emails. I want a little down time on vacation.

Have a great cruise, Neil

TrvlPro, Great answer. I aslo like the sea days more than at Port. Sometimes I even stay on board at port. So here are a couple more things.

Do the steam room and or sauna, it's free. Swap your sail and Sign for a key to a locker. Trade the key back when you are done.

And a nice quite place to read are the side decks. Usually not many people out there, just a few deck chairs but a beautiful view of the sea without other distractions. If you didn't bring a book borrow one from the library. Note that the dancers man the library when it's open for lending (read the capers) and you might engage them in a fasinating conversation about life on a cruise ship.

For me, the ideal 7-day cruise (at least in the Caribbean) would have the only stop being the private island or Cozumel, and the rest of the cruise at-sea.

I, too, prefer the sea days. I always enjoy afternoon tea, reading, watching (or participating in) various contests or games (i.e. Newlywed game; funny contests by pool, playing cards, going in the ships, and just watching the sea. On our recent 15 day cruise to Hawaii, 9 of the days were sea days, and we never got bored.

You can generally tell the real cruise lovers because they (count me in this crowd) love their days at sea. We generally cruise more than 70 days a year (usually 2 week or longer cruises) and seek out only cruises that offer a lot of sea days (transatlantics are nice). What do we do on those sea daya? Absolutely nothing! Generally for us it means lots of reading, lots of booze, lots of naps, and much lower blood pressure.
