Cool Adults only - Do you not get bored

I am so sorry for all the questions but have never been on a cruise and had no intention of doing so.

Then the talk of disney cruise came up

If it is just two adults, do you not get bored?

Probably a strange question but what do you do all day? I love to sun bathe but feel being on a disney cruise do obviously not want to do that all day.

Nope. I don't get bored. There seems to always be something to do. Bingo, Seminars, Bingo, Games, Movies, Bingo, Shows, Shore Excursions. Oh yeah did I mention, I like to play Bingo.

We went without DS a few years ago and I am still trying to do it again. But with DS being 15 - almost 16 on our next cruise , I think it will be more like no kids than with kids. We may see him for meals if we are lucky.

Until this last cruise, DH and I had always cruised just us, no kids. We were never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever bored. Ever. Really.
There is so much to do with tastings, demostrations, classes, etc, you have to work very hard to be bored. And I can honestly say after our first Panama Canal cruise and being on board for 14 days we still weren't bored.
Look at some Navigator's and you'll see how much there is to do.

I agree with the above poster...check out some Navigators for the length and itinerary you are considering and see if there is enough to occupy you. I can't imagine being bored (unless you just wanted to do nothing), but to each their own!

DW and I have been on three cruises on DCL. We have no children. The key to DCL is that they keep the kids so busy, you really don't think you are on a "Disney" cruise, if that makes sense. And, like any other cruise line, you can be as active or as bored as you want to be. It is all up to your desires. DW and I have NEVER been able to do everything we wanted to do on our cruises. So just go, relax and enjoy!

We have always cruised with our kids, but this time DH and I are going alone. This time we get to do what WE want to do.
That being said, on our last DCL cruises the kids spent a lot of time doing their own things, so DH and I were alone much of the time. I never got to do everything I wanted. The activities are jam packed.
My favorites were the cooking demos, tequila tastings, the adult shows, the spa, and Palo.
You will only be bored on DCL if you want to be bored.

If there hadn't been movies I wanted to see at 1:00 on Nassau and Castaway Cay days, yes - I would've been bored. There were plenty of activities on the sea day, but very few onboard activities for adults on port days. No - I am not one to spend time at the pool or spa.

I get more bored in Disney World then on a Disney Cruise, if I do have nothing to do I walk around the ship making movies and it becomes interesting

I have been on many disney cruises and have never gotten bored unless it was my own fault! There are so many things to do, see be part of and experiance! You will have have a blast and I bet sunbathing will only be a very small part of the things you do. Make the most of your Navigator and outline what you want to do during the day or just play things the way you want to!

You will have a blast and will never get bored. If you do, there is always food to eat and order room service, close the curtains and watch a movie! I bring boggle, and scrabble with me to play at the Cove Cafe and love relaxing that way.

Enjoy your cruise!

I can eat, order from room service, or watch a movie on TV on any ship - and usually at a lower price than on DCL! I'm referring to DCL's onboard activities on port days - which are definitely lacking for adults.

Luckily, we all get to have our own opinions.

We don't have childeren yet, and will be going on Disney Cruise #10 this October (already have #11 booked for summer of 2011). We've never been bored on a Disney cruise. Relaxed, yes. Bored, no.

I am sorry for some reason if I offended you! This was just an option as I had said that this was an option if you could find nothing else to do. I must say that I love taking it easy and you can't order room service when your home so why not on a boat if you can;t find something to do or just dont want to do anything. I do it to get close to the one I might be on the cruise with.

I do not find the DCL lacking in adult activities. I think there is much to do and hope that the poster of this question has a fantastic time on the DCL and I am sure she/he will!

I am also sorry that you find the DCL lacking in adult activites. I'm sure others might agree to your statement but the cruise is what you make of it and you can always find something to do. I many options and you picked one out to critique.

I hope you enjoy every cruise you take!
