Staying Busy on Sea Days
By Larry Fishkin
Sea Days are a fact of cruise life. Some love Sea Days – the calm of floating on the water with no agenda, no schedule is, for them, the epitome of a vacation. Others hate Sea Days, waiting them out impatiently until they finally arrive in the next port, when the real action resumes. Whether you love them or hate them, you have to deal with them – so here are the best things you can do on Sea Days to make them not only go by more quickly, but make them work for you.
That might seem obvious – but so many people feel like they have to be doing things constantly or they are ‘wasting’ their vacation. But vacations are supposed to be fun and relaxing – so relax! One day spent at the pool getting a tan and sipping drinks is awesome. A day spent at the spa being pampered is equally awesome. Or do both!
If pools and spas aren’t your thing, why not grab a book and head to the bar for a few drinks? Or hit the gym and get a great workout in – a cruise, after all, is often a marathon of eating and drinking mixed liberally with sleeping and sitting. A nice sweaty workout might be the perfect way to spend that Sea Day, leaving you refreshed and ready for more fun at the next port.
Use Your Time
Most cruise lines these days offer lots of constructive ways to spend your time if simply relaxing and enjoying the menus seems like a waste to you. Cruise lines often offer classes, lectures, and other mind-expanding activities that can turn your down time into Self Improvement time – imagine coming home from your vacation with a whole new skill!
Or, enjoy some culture. Your cruise line knows this Sea Day was coming, they almost certainly have concerts, plays, movies, and other events scheduled for you. Find your daily schedule and pick out a series of fun things that will take your mind off of the slow day – and then maybe hit one of the premium restaurants that night to make it feel a little more special!
No vacation can possibly be 100% activity from dawn to dusk every single day. If you think about it, a Sea Day might be a nice, welcome break from rushing about trying to cram all that ‘fun’ into every single waking moment. In addition to all of these ideas, there’s nothing wrong with a Nap Day, either.
