What's one thing you will never do on a cruise?

Walk around the Centrum (or Promenade) with only a robe and sneakers on.

I saw this a while back too. I suspected the likely reason but decided to ask anyway for fun. 
 

Yes, they did accidentally pack all their clothes and put their suitcase in the hall the night before debarkation. 
 

Interested if what you saw was also on debarkation morning.

This is not technically and on the ship thing, but I will never do a ‘resort for a day’ excursion. You leave the ship where you have a pool, free flow drinks (if you’re like me), all inclusive food and great service to pay to go to another place that has……a pool, free flow alcohol, all inclusive food, and great service. I just don’t get it! It seems like you are paying for something the ship already provides. Sure, sometimes there is a beach involved, but surely you can go to beaches without this pay charge. And if you don’t like beaches then why not just stay on the ship? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I will never pay extra for something that is otherwise included in my cruise fare - e.g. dining. There are plenty of excellent options included so there is no need to purchase "specialty" dining.

I also suspect that I will never sleep late enough to miss a sunrise while cruising. I am an early riser anyway and sunrise at sea or nearing a port is almost always spectacular.

Karaoke. I have the voice of a cat caught in a garbage disposal. ?

And you won't ever find me at the Dog House either. I hate hot dogs.

I will never stay in an inside room. Forget that I'm a suite snob. We actually use our room. DD is on the spectrum, and we need a space she can use to process all the stimulus of the day for an hour or so in the afternoons.

I’ll never disrespect a crew member…and I’ll never NOT go out of my way to show my appreciation for my cabin attendant, my servers and every other crew member who work their butt off for months at a time, away from their families, without a single day off. I believe that the crew really does make the cruise.

Oh, yeah……I’ll never do karaoke (I think there’s an international injunction against me singing in public, something about crimes against humanity)…I’ll never do the belly flop contest (I’d feel guilty causing so much laughter-induced pain)….and I’ll never NOT love cruising!!

I will Never do the Rock Climbing Wall .... I'd probably look like a Spider Monkey, and that just wouldn't be pretty.  

I agree with many of the other folks, I'll never remove tips, in fact, I usually add to them, I'll probably never do the Flowrider, however, I DO love Zip Lines, so, I'm good there.

I'll never be in the fray of the T-Shirt Sale (although my wife loves them)

I'll probably never have a Suite, unless it's HUGE and we split it with another couple.... we are totally happy in an Interior or Ocean View.... even a balcony is considered an "extra" that isn't a requirement.

I always leave the automatic gratuity the way it is on my account.  Then on the last night (or day) of the cruise, I'd give my waiter, the assistant, and my room steward additional tips.  I make sure to get gratuity envelopes from customer service.

Nope.

Just a hairy dude walking around with a cup of coffee. 

We met someone about 8 years ago who only packed a carryon for a 11 day cruise.  He and his wife always asked for robes the first day and that is all they would wear the rest of the cruise.  We did see him talking to someone just off of the cruise ship in one port with only a robe on.  WOW.  His name was Todd and we call him "The Todd" to this day.

Oh and I would never get a drink at the bionic bar.  Went on an 11 day cruise with the bionic bar, thought about it the first day but it was over crowded.  After the first day it was empty so decided it must not be worth it.
