Default Re: 7? 10? How Many?

Interesting - I've done 1 day cruises and 3 day cruises and have no trouble decompressing. The memories of the 1 day cruises are as vivid as the longer cruises. Maybe it is a diver thing, since we make the most of life in the hour it takes us to consume a tank of air. A 1 day cruise is a virtual 24 tank dive trip. 8)

To me, a seven or ten day cruise is nowhere near long enough. By the time you've decompressed from your "real" life, and gotten into the rhythm of shipboard life, it's time to pack up for disembarkation. It almost seems to me to be not worth it to take a shorter cruise.
