Sometimes, when cruising, we want to get everything in, and not miss a thing. We have to visit all the ports, get up early, etc. Well, I finally had my first taste of cruising. My wife and I, along with four others did the Southern Caribbean on the Summit. I only wish I would have had more days at sea. This was a 7 night cruise. January 19-26.
We did a lot. Only spent 3-4 hours per day on shore. Did not have any pre set excursions. I loved pool side time, listening to the band, jumping in the water from time to time. Another place to spend a minimum of an hour is the Thalassotherapy pool. Relaxing and fun. You could always jump out and get to the hot tub nearby. Lastly, a good 4-6pm spot is the Waterfall bar located in the rear of the ship. Great views, music, and drinks. This is especially a good time if you have the second seating for dinner, which I reccomend.
