Default 65 day cruise

I met a couple on my last cruise who do 3 cruises a year that are 65 days or more .This is in addition to an occasional 7 day cruise .

Does anyone here do long cruises ?

I did 30 days in May. Ft Lauderdale through the panama canal and up to Alaska for 2 weeks. Very nice if you have the time. Doing 3 weeks in december and am considering adding to it as they are offering 10days for $399 for the next leg with 175 OBC. Shooting to do 75 days on ship for the year.

Not yet I haven't but I am considering a Transpacific cruise next year.

I am booked to sail from Argentina to England next Spring.

I just don't have the desire to be away from my home for that long.

For me 10 to 15 days on a ship would be my limit.

25 nights has been my longest cruise with 17 seeming to be the norm (three in a row). I am planning to take the 72 day circle South America cruise one of these years but it is hard to accumulate enough vacation time at work.

Norm may have a long stretch, along with Ray.

I say I would love to do it, but also, don't think I could be away from home that long

We did about 42 day B2B2B2B (Med., TA, E.Carib, W Carib) for 3 years, then decided the Caribbean portion was to close to our annual Caribbean winter get-away cruise, so now Med. & TA. Then mid winter B2B, E-W Caribbean.

Once did a portion of a world cruise from FLL to Hong Kong 56 days. Too many great stops to bunch into one cruise, much better to break it down to more shorter cruises and stick w/one region.

I do back to backs, and have been gone for up to 30 days (usually transatlantic and one europe, or one caribbean and then the transatlantic. Love going north up the atlantic coast and then over, and going to Russia is a blast too. I didn't get in to Greenland, though we were able to dock in Iceland.
I'm game to go, but need a roomate.
Can I bring my little service dog?

It would have to be one of the Floridians on this board, for us who have to fly you would push us over the airlines 50# limit.
