If you don't like the beach and water, then a Caribbean vacation may not be for you, unless you plan to stay on the ship. There is always shopping, but nothing you really can't buy more cheaply online (except perhaps for conch pearls which are usually too expensive for most people anyway).
I have an opposite opinion! We're not "beach people" and we've found fun and interesting things to do in every port we've visited. Personally, I've never understood why people just go to a beach at every port. Why not just go to Florida ?

forensic, we love sea days, too, and have been able to find Princess cruises that aren't port intensive. It just takes some looking ! We'd love a cruise that has every other day (or even more) a sea day. Our next cruise has 7 port days and 7 sea days. Just about perfect!
