Default Long time at sea

We are booked to sail from Vancouver to Hawaii at the end of the summer. The cruise has 5 days at sea. Although Im sure that once we arrive in Hawaii, it will be wonderful, I am a little concerned about the lenght of time at sea. Has anyone been on a cruise with this much time at sea with no ports in between? Any feedback or advise would be appreciated. Happy cruising!

Marie, the Get Lei'd cruise last year had this same amount of time at sea. Perhaps you can search the past feature articles for ideas of how it is.

I know that the "at sea" days are when I totally relax ... read by the pool, play trivia, watch some movies and get some naps in.

Hope that helps a bit.

Agree with you Harry,
Have been on many cruises with more than seven consecutive sea days and these have been the best of all.
Days at sea are days at peace!

I sailed on Radiance from Vancouver to Hawaii Oct 2002. I have to say that we had bad weather for 4 out of the 5 days. A hurricane had hit the Pacific coast in Mexico and it was impacting on the weather to some extent right up the pacific coastline. It was quite cold and grey for 4 days although no rain and the boat was rocking more than I had experienced before. Every day the captain was being questioned will the weather get better tomorrow, you could tell people were starting to become quite sad and the atmosphere on board became quite downbeat. We like sea days as we like to have a rest from work before the hectic port thing starts. On this occassion we just found new ways of relaxing, mostly indoors and not lazing around the pool with a book. Once the sun came out on that 5th boat the atmosphere and people's spirits lifted 100%.

We also spent 6 days at sea on a transatlantic crossing and we found this to be so restful.

I think sea days are very much a personal like or don't like but they are a wonderful way to unwind.
