When the weather is not great on a sea day, do the cruise lines have enough to do?

Most of us have been on cruises when the weather is a factor which interferes with at sea activities.  What have been your best and worst experiences in terms of how the ship's crew managed a bad weather day?  What recommendations would you make to improve future experiences?

On bad weather sea days I'll just find a spot indoors to sit with a drink, relax, read and people watch.

Rough seas on Fantasy when the Behind The Fun canceled the tour of the bridge but there was still plenty do. The Serenity deck was open even though it was 45 degrees the water was nice and hot. I had plenty to do.

As long as they have lunched served, bars open and I have my reader, I'm good...... maybe bundle up and play mini golf, after a few drinks and in rough sea's it is much more challenging Big Smile

Window seat + Kindle + people to watch. It's all I need Big Smile Carnival didn't seem to have as many organized activities on our last couple of cruises. Trivia and Bingo were the mainstays.

On Carnival they often bring many outdoor activities inside, like bean bag toss. They have also added line dance classes on some ships. Usually the casino stays open but the mini golf closes (sorry, JustMe). The people watching seems even better on these days, because the cruisers are looking for things to do. I also often just need my kindle and friends with which to chat.

If by chance your timing is on, you could be walking normal. Wink

I can usually find enough to amuse myself for a day or two. Never bored on a cruise.

Our problem is there’s usually too much we want to do and we have to pick between things! Sometimes it’s really nice when there’s nothing scheduled that we’re interested in so we can spend a little while doing nothing at all…

Pretty much... And as long as there is a bar open, there is something to do lol.

Agreed ... there has always been a mix of indoor and outdoor things to do.
