As an update, we returned from the cruise this past Sunday. It was fantastic! We took a historical tour of the Dominican Republic, snorkeled in St. Thomas (saw some cool sea turtles), saw the rainforest, ate the local food on the square in Old San Juan, and toured the fort (Castillo de San Cristobal) in Puerto Rico, and hung out on the beach in Grand Turk (not much there). Weather was perfect and the cruise director did a fantastic job of keeping us all entertained.

Admittedly 7 days was a bit long for us and I think we will stick with 5 day cruises going forward but we really enjoyed our trip.

Why was 7 days too long? Just curious - thinking of taking a similar cruise later in the year on Carnival. We went on a cruise last Christmas and have been itching to go on another...

Interesting you find 7 days a bit long, most people after they have cruised a few times want loner, not shorter cruises. All in all, the important thing is you had a really good time. Thanks for the update.

I like seven day cruises because it uses up the time off that we take from work, and it allows us to get further away from embarkation while still having port calls every day or two. Once we retire, I could see switching to five day cruises, perhaps, sometimes, if we could get three five day cruises for the price of two seven day cruises.

If you are using a GPS, be sure to input Port Canaveral, and not Cape Canaveral. I don't think you need a rocket to the Caribbean!
