to me there are 3 reasons to a cruise to nowhere. 1. line is showing off new/refurbished ship and you want to check it out.
2. you like to go to the casino and it would be open many hours
3. you cruise for the ship and not the ports so this would be a very good choice.
now we cruise for the ports and do not gamble, hardly ever even play the slots so a cruise to nowhere is not for us.
if the cost is so close to a longer cruise then I would definitely take the longer crusie with the ports.
venice,your reasoning for taking one is very good, it definitely gives you a very good chance to see if the person would enjoy a longer cruise and it also allows you to really get to know each other.
