What's the longest cruise that you have been on?

25 day as 12 + 13 day cruises. 

An 8-day cruise on Carnival, a 7-day cruise on NCL.

21 days, a B2B on the Dawn in Jan/Feb.  Great times!

 

Before that it was a 14 day B2B on the Spirit.

Our longest was our 28 Australian Circumnavigation cruise in 2007.  To be honest, by the time it was nearly over I wished it WAS over.  I know people will disagree.  That was just me.

 

We've taken lots of 7-day back to backs.  Fourteen days didn't seem too long.  Those were just fine even though the itinerary was exactly the same for most of them.  We've gotten to the point where we seldom get off the ship so where it stops is kind of irrelevant.

15 days this past April with the kids on the Bliss Panama Canal ....... 


I'm doing the Canal on the Joy next year. What were the demographics like on that cruise compared to a typical 7 day sailing?

We went in April. The majority of passengers were 50 and over, couples. I’m 43, wife 39, kids 9 and 11. Plenty of people from around the world as the Panama Canal is a world destination unlike your typical 7 day Caribbean cruise. Very few teens, nor 20 and 30 year olds. Less than 200 children on board and the majority of the kids were probably 14 and younger. Very respectful passengers without any loud and obnoxious incidents . No riff raff.  Different than your typical 7 day cruise because of the length and higher cost.

Usually the longer the cruise, the age of passenger goes up and there are less children.

That's what I figured. Going with wife and son...me and wife are both early 30's but are pretty laid back...and son as well (12). Everything you mentioned sounds great. I would imagine a lot less chaos in Garden Café as well. Thanks

Yes, I figured. I'm only 31 and would prefer to be amongst my peers, but unfortunately the manners, respect, and generosity don't match that of those who are 50+ which is why I'm really looking forward to my 15 day Canal Cruise.

Yes less Chaos in the buffet but ....... but ...... Many passengers on this cruise were older, with walkers, or scooters. The cafe is a popular place for them to hang out, socialize, and play cards thus hogging up seating for those looking to eat even though they were not. Because the Canal transit can be very hot some of the best views on that day can be seen from the buffet by the windows in air conditioning and seating can be at premium the transit day as many seem to sit there all day...... as the transit takes many hours.

love long cruises.

 

I agree totally; I looked at the cruises we have done.  The longest set was 54, then 47, 42, 34, 29, 29 and 28.  We had only 5 shorter than those.   We have 3 "cruises" booked over the next 18 months; 51, 44 and 37 days.   Living in New Zealand the costs of getting to the Northern Hemisphere mean that short cruises are not economic.   We do cruise Inside so we can afford such long "cruises".

32 days on MSC Divina in the Caribbean booked as a 10, 11, 10 day cruise. Doing 28 days this November on the MSC Seaside as four 7 day cruises. We only have 21 days booked next year on Nieuw Statendam but I am sure we will add to that. The most we have ever done on NCL is a 21 day cruise on the Epic as three 7 day cruises but then we got off of the Epic and went straight to the CCL Sunshine for 7 days making it a total of 28 days.

 

Usually after about the third week I am too stuffed to eat lol.  Gained 10 lbs on the 32 day cruise and still working at getting it off lol.

We have been on a number of 14 day cruises, which were repositioning, or longer round trip cruises.  To me, the longer the better.

 

Seven days now are waay to short------over in a flash.  I suggested to NCL, that they add Charleston, South Carolina, to some of the Boston---Bermuda cruises.  Let's see if they listen to me.  I hope that they do.

I'm going on an 11 day on the Breakaway in January.  It will be my first over 7 days.  I hope it doesn't spoil me from the 7 day cruises.
