I tend to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, so we spent a lot of time away from deck 9 on both of our cruises. Our last one to Canada was very foggy and chilly on deck at times.

Here are some of the things we enjoyed as a family around the ship on sea days

Character Dance Parties in the atrium
Animation Drawing Classes at Animators
Towel Folding Classes
Movies in Buena Vista
Walking/Joggin on Deck 4
Shuffle Board on Deck 4
Character Meet and Greets
Tea with Alice
Playhouse Disney Time
Relax with the family
Some time at the pool/splah pad area

Those are just some of the activities I can remember off the top of my head.

The unplanned times were some of the best times.

My DD11 loved it as well! The only thing was that she got frustrated with some of the harder characters. Don't miss Mickey/Minnie because they are the easiest. Then Stitch, Donald/Daisy, Goofy and Woody. (If these are offered on your cruise.) Woody was by far the hardest, IMO. Often, it was difficulty level that decided which would be offered for families or adults only.

I'm planning on bringing my own eraser and graph paper for my next cruise because they offered little half pencils for half of the classes and printer paper.

Walking deck 4
Reading on my verandah, quiet Cove area, or out on the decks anywhere
Alcohol tasting classes
Watching a movie
Sitting by the Mickey pool while my DS played, chatting with other parents or intermittently reading my book
Browsing through the shops
Just walking and checking out the ship

I have only seen photography excursions on the Alaska cruise - never classes or seminars on the ships. DH is a photography nut, though, so one of his favorite pastimes is going up to the upper decks and taking scenery shots, even if it is of the sunset or the starry sky!

I love taking pics. I would soooo take a class if one was offered. It's the kind of thing that I NEVER would have time to do in my regular life, but I would love to on a cruise. Ah, well.....I'll still take plenty, I'm sure!
