I always take a radio, and scan FRS, business, and especially the Marine band. Holland America uses marine channels for port and excursion ops, sometimes very entertaining. Even my wife likes to listen. I've seen other people with scanners and Marine HTs as well.

I've also use VHF/UHF ham radio in ports and made a few contacts. Just be sure of your licensing status outside the US.
