Most of our cruises have been 7 nights, and our longest was 10, which we found to be a good length. Generally, the further we need to travel to get to a cruise, the longer I'd like the cruise to be. Of course, it doesn't always work out that way.

As far as the days of the week undies -- if you bring them on a cruise and fear forgetting what day it is, then Royal Caribbean is for you. They change the carpeting in the elevators daily, and each carpet includes the day of the week.
Happy cruising!

The longest I have taken so far was 8 days. Untill this year all I did was the 7 to 8 day cruises. his year I started doing the weekend (3 day) just to get away for a while. All in all I like the longer cruises.

Now I really would like to try one of the 14 or 21 day cruises.

I have found that any cruise that gives me a few days at sea is relaxing and enjoyable. I do need to add that the longer the cruise,the better I feel when I come ashore-cruising,to me, is the Great Escape!

I have to fly from Ottawa, Canada so anything less than 7 days is not practical. I am a new cruiser (2 taken + 1 planned). My first cruise was a 7 day and I was hooked from the start. Cruising is the perfect vacation for me. Only those that have been on a cruise understand. I try to explain to my co-workers and neighbours but they don't get it. (I consider this forum my support group for addicted cruisers). I have also done a 10 day and am booked for another 10 day in Dec. A 2008 cruise to celebrate my sister's 50th b'day will be a 7 day.
10 day vs 7 day, quite frankly, I don't mind which one, as long I am on a ship in the Caribbean I am in paradise.
Finally getting back on a Dam ship, Nieuw Amsterdam Nov'11 (My Mom's 80'th B'day cruise)

I've done two 7-day cruises and one 8-day cruise. I liked the 8-day cruise best. I don't think I'd do anything less than 7 days, although I guess if I lived in a port city I would consider it. My husband and I are considering an 11-day or 12-day cruise next year, but we're not sure if it will be too much, since there are seven ports of call (!!!)

Cortney, my family and I are making a 12-night cruise with 7 ports of call next month. Most of our cruises so far have been 7 nights, and we've done one that was 10. I'll let you know it turns out. I'm hoping we won't need a vacation from vacation.
Happy cruising!

Since we are able to take a quick (5 1/2 hours) run to New Orleans....we have done a couple of 4 day cruises. But overall, I think I am done with those. 5 days at a minimum and since the longest we have done is a 7 day...I guess that is my favorite so far!!

I knew there was something I liked about you, Bob. Plus we are practically neighbors. I am a five minute walk from the Dred Scott ballfields. We will have to meet for coffee sometime.
