Default Two Day Port Stops

Which cruise lines or itineraries commonly include two (2) day port stops?

What Search criteria would you use to find the above??

Thanks,

Lou

Lou,

That's a hard one to search.

On a repositioning cruise from Ensenada to Seattle, we had 2 days in San Francisco. But most times, two days is really all day until 2 a.m. the next day (meaning that night). I made this mistake when I thought we would have 2 days in Acapulco on the Spirit.

Look closely at arrival and departure dates is my advice on this one.

Harry

Most ResidenSea port stops are two days or longer. SilverSea and Seabourn also has longer stops. Oceania advertises longer stops but I didn't notice that in the Europe brochure I just got. Radisson sometimes does a day and a half so that you can enjoy an evening ashore.

Many of the Hawaiian cruises overnight in Maui so passengers can do one of the Luaus.

Lou:

A friend is going to Hong Kong for an 11 day cruise to Tianjin (Beijing) this week. I pulled up the itinerary and saw three nights in Hong Kong, two nights in Shanghai, and an overnight in Beijing. This looks like a good itinerary to actually have a chance to see a location. We have our first Asian cruise next year. It includes two day stops in Hong Kong, Saigon, Bangkok, and Singapore. You are right in that this is a lot better than the normal 0800-1800.

St. Petersburg is nearly always an overnight stop. Other European cities sometimes include Copenhagen and Venice (delayed embarkation for a day).
