I hope they keep the formal nights. I love to see the splendor.
Suse, is that 10 work days (i.e., Monday-Friday)? If so, and if you time it right, you should be able to get a 14 day cruise in. I work on Sundays, so that makes it more difficult for me to take a 7-day cruise that departs on a Sunday ... I have to miss TWO Sundays in a row in order to get just 1 week of cruise. If I want 2 weeks aboard ship, and the cruise departs on a Sunday, I have to miss THREE Sundays in a row. That's expensive, even if the total time gone is only 14 days.
My point is, if you can take off only 10 days at a time you should be able to get in a 2 week cruise with that. Or, are you days off inclusive of Saturdays and Sundays?
