What do you think about four sea days in a row? (or even more???)

I check into cruisemapper several times a day now.  During this time of year three Carnival ships are doing the North Western part of Mexico.  Imagination, Inspiration, and Miracle.  Then I noticed Miracle creeping northward.  It's headed to Alaska from LA.  Four sea days in a row.  I was wondering what people think about that many sea days.  If I ever go to Alaska I'll probably do it from Seattle so I don't have as many sea days in a row.

 

So what's your opinion?  Do what you can to shorten the number of sea days in a row or it doesn't matter to you?

The most I've ever done is two in a row. I could easily do three, four might be pushing it.

I would like to give it a try though!Happy

Good question... My trip on Magic to Aruba took 69 hours... It's a lot.. I did get a little bored with routine.  Once in Aruba it was nice to get off the ship... 4 days on a cruise ship could be tedious.   I say this from past military sea days 3 months at a time.  In the service you are always busy with watches and work.

Also remember... On sea days I've found myself spending a lot more money.  Once off the ship for eight hours it was nice knowing I didn't rack up my sail and sign card.  Spent 30 dollars in Aruba....

It really depends on the weather ... the 4/5 sea days to and fro Hawaii were awful because the weather was cold windy and rainy so limited your time on deck ... If the weather is nice, I could stay at sea indefinitely ... 

As far as going north to Alaska ... I went out of LA and stopped in San Francisco and Victoria so it broke it up quite a bit...

As far as Aruba, I've done it both ways but I like when Aruba is the last stop not first so that you have nice leisurely days at sea coming home ...

Oh just put my put my butt on a boat and I'm happy ..............

Love sea days. We have done several Transatlantic and Transpacific cruises with seven or eight sea days. So relaxing, especially B2B after a port intensive cruise. Weather doesn't matter. I am not a sun worshipper so a good book in the solarium is perfect.

2 in a row has been our max thus far, but I think I could do 4. I absolutely love sea days.

While we both enjoy sea days my DH doesn't enjoy them as much as I do.  He refuses to book a cruise that has more than three sea days in a row.  Now if we were on a cruise that had to stay at sea for extra days, because of say a hurricane, then that would be different.  Personally, I'd like to do a transatlantic crossing or a Hawaii cruise with all those sea days. Since I don't cruise without my DH, I'll not be doing those.

We've only had two sea days in a row but I'd like to try 3 or 4. I'd likely lounge on an outside deck all day and read, relax and just enjoy the sea breeze.

March 2018 will be (hopefully) doing a 7-day Southern Caribbean with two at sea days each way. Building the wife up. As DVCruise stated -- good weather -- she will be fine, and happy topside in the sun. Bad weather - well, let's just say it will be a tough cruise on my end.

Goal is a Trans-Atlantic with 5-days in a row crossing the Atlantic in late 2019.
