We did a 3 day last year and the 4 day this year so it's our first experience with a day at sea. I've already read the Mickey pool will probably be packed although we'll have to spend some time there.

What are some other things to do?

Check your Navigator, but there are all sorts of family things, character greetings, etc. They also have things going on all day at the Kid's Clubs.

I took in a movie (Bolt in 3d), strolled around deck 4, took in a galley tour, and listened to some performers playing by the quiet cove pool.

Vista Spa - Absolutely loved the Rainforest Room and for a special treat maybe a massage or some other service (i.e. facial, etc.)

A close second to Vista Spa for us is probably the Palo Brunch.

Sit on my verandah, have room service, and *chill* in my own space.

I second Vista Spa! I ended up spending way more time (and money) there than I would have ever imagined....but it was worth every penny! My mom and I came out of each of the sea days feeling sooooo relaxed. It was a great time!

The spa, a galley tour, a lot of sitting with a good book (or a cold drink) and looking out at the water and feeling removed from the world....:thumbsup2

Laundry!

The first thing our cabin steward told us was NEVER to do laundry on a sea day......unless you like waiting in line.

On sea days we like to:
1) Sleep in
2) Enjoy a leisurely breakfast
3) Play ping pong and shuffle board
4) Just walk the deck and take in the sun and seas and wind.

We also went to Palo for Brunch. Then, my 19 year old went to the spa, and I played Bingo!

1) Definitely sleeping in! :banana:
2) Watching movies in the BVT
3) Seminars if they have any (on the Magic, there was a thing about Disney Innovations, very cool!)

Its interesting about people saying ''sleeping in'' -I can do that at home???

with all the ships activities there isn't too much time to sleep!!

Yeah, that was kind of a joke. However, I do like to use this time to 'catch up' on things. Often times this is the only time to get it done. I'm an early riser....not too many crowds there at 0600 hrs.

Trivia! Order a Mickey Bar from room service. (OK - I did that every day!) :)

1. Breakfast at Topsiders -- Muesli
2. Sit in the sun by the pool
3. Walk/jog on Deck 4
4. Quick lunch at Goofy's Galley -- Panini's and fruit
5. Sit in the sun by the pool reading or watching a movie on the big screen

Occasionally, I may do a wine tasting, galley tour, a presentation by Ducky Williams if he's onboard, brunch at Palo, but generally it's time for relaxing, reading, listening to music, etc.

We enjoyed watched the ice carving, the spa, and just enjoying being out on the deck by the pools soaking up the warm sunshine.

My son participated in a Wii tournament in Diversions (came in second to a 40 year old balding guy who apparently spends a lot of time playing video games :rolleyes1 Later he and my husband had a great time participating in a mini-golf competition in the main lobby. Also--pick-up soccer and basketball games were always fun up on the top deck.

how can you stand that? i imagine one or two would be fun, but that would be hard to bear for me. bring lots of good books (i would bring harry, percy, maximum ride, and darren shan...my faves)

We actually have a book exchange arranged and when the cruise is over all books will be donated to the crew. :thumbsup2

I read three books on my 7 day, so I should be good for six.

DCL has special events planned for the sea days on the longer cruises, so there is always something to do. And maybe THIS time I'll be able to catch a movie too.

Reading on the verandah or Cove Cafe....I usually bring my own in paper back and donate them to either the bookshelf in the Cove or to the crew library.

With no shore excursions to worry about making I want to SLEEEEP IN!! THEN I want a nice sit-down breakfast in Triton's or Lumiere's. Then I hope to plop myself in a lounge chair by the pool with a book and a cocktail (or 2 or 3....).:thumbsup2
