Reading and ship libraries

I enjoy reading.  Cruises for me are a great get away from it all and a wonderful time to finish novels I've been stalled on due to work and other commitments.  Who else here finds cruises a good time to catch up on reading?  Also interested in hearing what others think are the best ship libraries they've encountered.  For me the best ship library so far that I've been in is on HAL Amsterdam.  Large airy space with good window views and plenty of comfortable seats and even couches.

I read quite a bit on the ship.  I don't stay in the library, though, because I enjoy a window seat where I can watch the sea as well as other cruisers.

Celebrity Solstice had a GREAT library/reading room (2015 Alaska cruise).

I love to read a good novel but never on a cruise.  I like to roam around or drink and enjoy my day.  Then the casino and shows.

I really enjoy reading, but never indoors on the ship. You'll find me with my book lounging in the sun. I spend as little time as possible indoors while cruising, and have never even been in a ship's library - I take my own books with me.

In Alaska I studied up on native fauna - aided and abetted by excellent naturalists and excellent Audubon journals - on the trip around the Horn I re-read Darwin's Voyages of the Beagle. Quite the treat.

I do enjoy reading on a cruise, I have found so far that Holland has had the nicer libraries.
