Entertainment aboard a Cruise Ship

The first thing people ask me when I tell them I`m going on a cruise is: “Don`t you get bored? You’re stuck on a boat at sea?”

And I`m happy to say: “NO!” There is SO much going on aboard a cruise ship. First of all, it`s not just a boat, the ships these days are huge! (Think Oasis of the Seas, this ship can carry more than 6000 passengers!) It doesn`t have to be that big, of course. But I would love to sail it once, just to experience the facilities on it ;-)

The ships I`ve been on, carry about 3000 passengers. Apart from the shore excursions you can make at every port of call, what is there to do aboard a cruise ship?

If you`re into sports, there is a running track, a rock climbing wall, miniature golf, basketball,…

There is a swimming pool, a sun deck, Jacuzzis and a Spa! During the day the entertainment staff organizes contests by the pool like `Belly Flop competition`, `Mr Sexy Legs competition`,… All very funny :)

You can play shuffle board, board games, see a movie (in your stateroom) or in the theatre.

The kids can do all these things I already mentioned and join the Kids clubs for different ages. These clubs organize several activities like preparing their own Circus Show.

Definitely go see the Ice Show Yes, isn`t that amazing, you`re in the middle of an ocean watching an ice show!! (or if there`s not a show, you can ice skate yourself.)

See a show! There is dance, comedy,… and “The Love & Marriage show” which usually is very funny! You definitely have to check out “The Quest”, it`s hilarious ;-)

Even de room stewards do their best to entertain you with a different towel animal each night!

There is the daily Cruise Compass to keep you informed of all the things that are happening aboard your cruise ship! Still think you`ll get bored on a cruise?
