Rainy Day Activities

We are expecting some storms and rain here soon, which made me think, what would I do on a cruise on rainy days?

I really only had one rainy day on most of my cruises and we just walked the ship and sat at the crown bar... What are some other things everyone else likes to do on a rain day?

Find a comfortable corner and delve into a good book. Or if the rain is not hard but a light warm rain then a nice stroll around the deck or relaxing in the pool or hot tub is not out of the question either. It is also a good chance to explore the ship or enjoy a nice game of cards.

Depends what activities are planned. If nothing appeals to me, there is always the casino.

I like to sit down near a window and read for a bit, walk around the ship, See what the planned activities are go to a few of them, if not to heavy of a rain, the hot tubs are great in cold rainy weather, get a drink at a bar that has live music and look out at the rainy sea..... and since on a cruise how could we forget..... eat Big Smile

Being a So Cal native.....I don't get much rain, that's why I like to just watch and enjoy it.

That was our end of dinner activity lol... Right before visiting Richard our favorite bartender lol

I either find a place to sit down & listen to music or find a quiet place to read. The only totally rainy day I have had was in Grand Turk & I went to Margaritaville & spent some time there. Since there was no lightning, I did buy a poncho & walk a little bit around the beach & dock area too.

Sometimes its good to just embrace the rain...In our daily lives we run for cover from it and hide from it. But when you are on vacation and you are relaxed-grab that poncho and walk out in the rain (safely). If your a bit more adventurous don't ware a poncho.Big Smile

It rains on cruises?Surprised

Occasionally, that's when we find a place with wifi so the Mrs can get her fixHappy

Well this is really an open ended question. It really depends on the company. If it is just you and your significant other, spend more time "sleeping in" and then like laytonblu09 said, embrace it! We are from Canada so any rain in the Caribbean is a warm rain, so I choose shorts and a t-shirt to walk around in the rain! personally, I think a rainy day is a great day for a hot tub with my wife and I sipping on a nice cold something!

A downpour might call for the Kindle (if I have it charged and packed) but a nice sprinkle... I might just hot tub it. I'm from Buffalo originally and the other half likes it cold.. I just don't like no sunshine Nervous
