One Day Cruise ?!

Received a lucrative offer to do a one day stint on the Ocean Medallion Princess Regal in November ... having difficulty cost justifying air fare unless I stayed on and cruised the next segment BUT is it just me, or does it seem like a lot of hassle to board a ship and set sail only to return and disembark the next day?

I've debated the same thing with some of the Vancouver - Seattle one-dayers but it's hard to justify ... anybody ever do it?

Certainly depends on getting there. If I can get to the port for relatively cheap then I'd be open to a one day cruise.

I'm not sure if it would be worth it for us - about a 4 hr drive min to Vancouver plus parking for just an overnight cruise. But then again, if it's the same price as an overnight in a hotel, a night away with good food and entertainment would be nice

I would not even do a 1 day cruise if it left from my home port....... it's to much work for one night.

I thought CTNs were outlawed

I think these one days are from like Seattle to Vancouver or that kind of thing.

I would if I could do a "follow-on". We find 4 days not worth the air, parking and hotel fees. But like others have said, if you can get a good deal on the extras, why not?

not for me either, with that being said, if ii lived closer to the port and it left at like noon and could stay on ship until noon the next day, I might consider it as a parents date night :).

I have done a cruise to nowhere but from a local port. If I had frequent flyer points to use, I would think about doing one that involved flying since the cost of flying would be free. Otherwise I would not do one if it meant flying. I do agree that it is a lot of work to prepare for a cruise for one night. It all depends on how badly you want the short vacation. There is no one right answer.

Not a chance. Totally not worth the hassle unless the ship was within walking distance

We did a one-day Bahamas cruise from Ft. Lauderdale while we were staying there. It was fun.
