Default Three days on Mariner - too short?

I am looking at a three-day cruise offered on Radisson Seven Seas Mariner. It's as expensive as a seven-day on other lines, and I understand why. But my question is, has anyone done this, and is it just too short? It almost doesn't seem worth it because it would be over with so soon.

Also, we will be ages 26 and 29 at sailing - it would be our honeymoon - would we feel out of place?

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Michelle:

I was booked on the Dec 12th 3 day sailing until we decided to do canal instead. Three days will be a good introduction. However, some reports from the 3 day on the Navigator last year were not the best.

I would book Cat H. Ernie should be able to get you a discount off the "cheap" fare. By comparison, I spent $520 pp for the 3 day on the Sov of the Seas Cat C upgraded to Cat A. No comparison between the two.

You will enjoy the food, be able to explore the ship, and relax....all for less money than staying in the Grand Floridian for the same three nights.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Marc, why was the Sovereign price that high. We sailed on the 4-day on Labor Day last year and the price was $339 for Cat. C and got an extra day ?

Regards,
Thomas

Thanks Marc. I will think about it. Unless Thomas is being serious, in which case I'll take the credit cards and run.

Cheers,
