With so many onboard activities and excursions on shore, our celebrity columnist is thoroughly spoilt for choice

I always find it baffling when people tell me they think they would get restless on a cruise. The notion that all there is to do on sea days is sunbathe, stare at the sea or read a book couldn’t be further from the truth.
