Assuming the money and time were just for the cruise and not the rest of my life expenses, probably 3-4 months a year. I'd pay off the cruiseline to let me bring my cats

Hypothetical, of course, and certainly could change when DH is retired but I think we'd like to cruise for about 80 - 100 days a year. I'm not sure about World Cruise. Can't wrap my head around it now as it is out of the question as long as DH continues his work.

I suppose it would be 3-4 months out of the year. A round-the-world cruise would run you about 3 months and then I'd spend a few weeks specifically in the Caribbean.
