Default If you could,would you........?

If you had the means, and, the time, how many cruises would you take a year? Would you take lots of shorter cruises, or fewer, longer cruises?

How would you define your year? Maybe,[gasp] no cruises?)
Yayay for you, if you are already doing this

We would probably go for a 10-14 day cruise for each of the four seasons.

I would do multiple cruises every year. Probably in the 4 - 6 a year range, and they would all be atleast 7 nights if not longer.

I would cruise twice a year, that's how many times I get seriously BURNED OUT through the year. I wouldn't mind doing a 5 day in the spring and then 7 or 8 day in the fall/winter.

A 7 - 10 day cruise every 3 months strikes me as just right.

I'd be thrilled to be able to do two a year, one in the winter/early spring to somewhere tripical and then an Alaska one every summer. Can't get much better than that.

I'd probably start with a world cruise. After that once or twice a year - trying to do different itineraries to see the great wide world.

I would probably buy into one of the Residence Cruise ships and just live on it for the rest of my life.

I would like to take several cruises a year of anywhere from 10 to 30 days.

Not too interested in short cruises.
