The #1 Website for Cruises from Galveston and Houston, Texas


A Full List of a Day’s Activities Aboard a Ship

Most people know about the amenities on board a cruise ship — the pools, restaurants, climbing walls, and much, much, more. But what’s rarely discussed are all the activities the ship plans for passengers to keep them entertained while at sea.

We recently ran across a daily schedule of activities from a past cruise and wanted to share it with you. This should give you a better idea of all the things going onboard a ship… beyond the pictures you see in the glossy brochures.
