Ideally, there is no entertainment on board. Most people hang out near the pool. If you don't have something to do on land, you will become bored very fast. There are classes to go to but I didn't go to all of them, I've seen only a few of them. I missed napkin folding - what a bummer, now what will I show my friends? I did see the towel folding demonstration, that was kind of amusing. How to make a ribbon rose? come on people! It's like visiting the old folks home, or kindergarten, don't they have anything more interesting to do on board?
The food isn't so great that I would gorge myself every day. And I don't want to pick up skin cancer like half the people out there. As a side point, I really didn't need to see that much skin on certain people. I know it sounds like I'm complaining a lot, but this is really all true.
There is a pool table you can shoot a game with, located in the Colony Club.
On one of the days, they had tour the Bridge. This is very important, not allowed on the bridge are the following: NO CAMERA'S or ELECTRONICS, or BAGS. You have to wait in a very long line. They sweep you with a metal detector. Inside, your photo is taken, wear a clean shirt (unlike me). There are holes covered in glass in the floor on the flying bridge. It's how the captain can park so well and so close. Personally I didn't want to step on it; always having that inherent fear that I'll be the one who breaks it and falls through. So, I stepped over it, in doing so, I almost grabbed one of the control levers that moves the ship. I stopped myself in time, hopefully they lock out those controls. It looked like a thruster control. That would have made an interesting little story though.
After the picture, you can see the captain in his chair answering mundane questions like: How high up are we? 10 meters. How many feet in a meter? 3 I think.
What kind of fuel does it run on? Then 4 more ask the same exact question. It was pretty boring really. On the other hand it was the most stable part of the boat. And it had by far the best view. The only thing I learned that day was that the captain got chocolate chip cookies, and we didn't. I had to resist temptation taking the captains cookies.
You can go to the video arcade, but it's 50 cents a play, and that can add up real fast. Or you can go to the Casino - only open at certain times. Kids are not allowed in.
There's bingo and the horse race. Bingo is played every day. The horse race, is at the end of the trip. Betting is explained before the rules, and people are dumb enough to place bet's before they even know how the horses move. The race takes place near the bar outside the pool. It's a toss of the dice game.
From the start it was a guessing game, what could he be making. It was a boring game. And kids got in my way.
