I normally don't like just sitting around a pool, and I'm not good at doing nothing. But somehow on a ship, I become an expert at lazy.
I can't tell you what I do on sea days, but they seem to go very quickly. Between exploring the ship, walking off meals, people watching, a quick swim, changing clothes, meals, an iced tea on deck, trivia (we didn't know it could be so much fun), maybe a lecture I don't know - the day just flies by.
And if your ship as a teen program your kids will be fine with it.
I thought I would hate sea days but I'm so looking forward to this coming cruise with 2 sea days.
But I can see how lazy can be a difficult skill to master (I'm not being sarcastic) so perhaps look for cruises with fewer sea days.

yes they really travel with us, and yes, my husband does have the patience of a saint
