Duration

-Most cruises can be anywhere from a 3-day weekend to a 2-week transatlantic adventure.

-3-day cruises are good for you and your significant other trying to get away or to test out if cruising is really for you.

-5-to-7-day cruises are perfect for vacations/those who are used to cruising.

-14+ day cruises I would suggest for European/other country vacations or even a honeymoon cruise.

-The more days you are gone, the more places you will be able to see and experience.

*If you are new to cruising, I would start at a 3 or 4-day cruise, if you have cruised before I would suggest a 5 to 7-day cruise.

*If you have questions or need help booking let's jump on a consultation call. You can book it now :)

CURATED BY
Born and raised in Vermont, but currently living in Nashville, Tennesee. From a small-town girl with big-city dreams, I have always loved to travel. What better way than to create general and customized itineraries, to allow those to follow their traveling dreams? My itineraries saves you time on the planning, so you can enjoy more time being at the actual location.
