Trying to plan our first cruise to the Caribbean this summer. When looking at itineraries, one of the differences is number of at-sea days. What do you do during this time? We are not big on sitting by the pool or gambling. Yes, we can relax, read, walk around the ship one day. But what if there are 2 or more days when the ship is just cruising?

Just to give you an idea, our family includes two 50 something parents & 18 & 22 yo "kids". Ships we are considering, based on itineraries, port of departure, dates etc are Serenade of the Seas, Enchantment of the Seas and Emerald Princess.
You would be surprised all the things there are to do on a ship. Besides swimming and hot tubs, free gym, shuffleboard, putt putt golf, bingo (pay extra), karoake, music all day all over the ship, art shows (if you sign up for the free drawing, you can look and drink free champagne), las vegas type shows, comedians (early and late showings). Many people bring highlighters to mark off on the capers (ships newsletter) what they want to do for the day. Which ever one you choose, you will have a great time.
