If you have never cruised I would do a 7 + day cruise to see how you like it.
But if you are experienced cruiser you will probably do fine.
We did 32 days this year and found we could have stayed on longer but the ship was already full up http://cruise-chat.com/groupee_commo.../icon_wink.gif

I cannot even dream of anything better than a b2b for 35 days, but I am totally addicted to cruising. Just starting out, I'm with Lyn, try it with a 7-10 day itinerary. I'll bet you'll come back saying it wasn't long enough! Then you can book a b2b with full confidence. Best wishes!

Just out of curiosity, what is the itinerary that gets you two 17 day cruises that go back to back and are they different (meaning is the 1st cruise itinerary different from the second?)

I disagree Penny, I say go for it. Why waste the opportunity to cruise for 35 days! I wish I could swing that.

hi jim, the 17 day cruise goes from sydney to perth via darwin & broome then the 2nd leg starts from perth to melbourne, tasmania across to new zealand & back to sydney

the itinerary is different & its a good price

Wow, that sounds like an amazing cruise. The airfare alone would kill it for me. Maybe when I retire rich http://images7.fotki.com/v142/photos...33/lol2-vi.gif

The itineraries sound great, but you can hit some pretty rough waters on the crossing from NZ to Australia. If you have never cruised before, I think you need to take a shorter cruise first to see how you do.

I just did a back to back. Five days on the Enchantment, the 7 days on the Liberty. Even being on two different ships, I was ready to get off on the last day. I know some people that are doing a 46 day cruise on the Mariner when she repositions in 2009. I love to cruise, but I think 14 days would be my limit.

Sonny,

I agree with you. As much as I like to cruise, I think I'd be more than ready to debark after 14 days...and more likely even after 11 days. The longest cruise we have done is 8 days and I really liked that length of time. I wouldn't mind back-to-back of a 4 night and then the 5 night on some ships.

I think I'd get terribly bored and impatient on a 46 day cruise. I guess it depends on the personality of the cruiser.
