My longest cruise was 14 nights on a Celebrity Transatlantic. It wasn't the typical TA itinerary with 6-7 sea days in a row. Instead it sailed around the British Isles to Iceland, then crossed to Newfoundland, Canada and ended in Bayonne, NJ. The most sea days in a row were 2, and I loved it.

Disney Magic 15 nights WBPC May 2008.

Consecutive nights on ship (not in port) - 5 on the same cruise.

Just curious...how do they mix up the dinners on those long cruises? Do you end up having the same menu at some point or are they good about a different one every night?

14 night EB Panama cruise in 2005. At the time we had 3 kids...5, 7 and 8. We would have been happy to stay on even longer. Once our twins (2 1/2) are old enough for the clubs, we hope to do a long itinerary again.

14 nights for us, but many have done 25! Trans-Atlantic + first med = 25.

On 14 night cruise, we had a different dinner menu each night. We had the basic 7 interspersed with different themed nights...each with a beautiful menu, some level of server costumes, etc.

We did the 11-Night Southern Caribbean on the Wonder in 2006. That was just incredible. For Dining, they just had different theme nights. They did not do "the show" in Animator's Palate each night. I remember doing a Mickey Mouse Club night there one night. Everyone got buttons for it. Great fun.

We will be breaking our "record" with the 14-Night Westbound Transatlantic in September. Our first trip on the Magic, too. Can....Not....Wait!!! :rotfl:

So far I guess tied with kcashner. All of my friends don't believe me about how amazing DCL is. They think we are TOTALLY crazy for being on ship for 25 nights. We are so excited about it. That is why I wanted to see what others thought.

So at the end were you so ready to run off the ship and not look at a boat for awhile?!?!?!? Or were all 25 as magical as always?!?!?!

I think I am going to be just as sad at the end of the 25 nights as we are after a 7 or 14 night cruise. I know after the last EB TA I cried when it was over. I could have stayed longer.

In a perfect world I would rather do the Med then the TA but that did not work out for us.

Thanks for the input!!!

You and your family are very lucky to be getting to sail for 25 nights!! Hopefully when I'm out of college I can sail on a back 2 back and have a long vacation on the cruise. I've only been on 4 night sailings so far and I'm sooooo sad when having to leave the ship, I wish I could stay there FOREVER!!!

Have fun, hopefully you will do a trip report so we can see how much fun you had.

You misread kcashner's post. She said 14 nights for her, but mentioned others had done 25 nights.

We've done 21 days twice. The last west coast and first EB PC in 2005. Then did a b2b2b with an alternate itinery eastern-western-eastern in 2004 I think.

Had booked a b2b2b for the first med cruise which would have been 35 days I think but we had to cancel last minute because of a job move.

15 nights- EB Repo Aug 2008

Us too! We had our best trip ever!

A year later I did the same trip on the Coral Princess with my mom and sister. The food on the DCL was much better and had a lot more variety than the Princess Cruise Line. JMO

We have the 15-night WB Transatlantic in September of 2011 booked and very much looking forward to it.

I was on the Coral Princess in 2007, and the Wonder in 2008 and 2009. I would say DCL's food was comparable to other cruise lines I've been on, including Princess.

In reality only the 7 nights. This summer we are booked for the 8 night Dover to Barcelona Repo but if my Lotto numbers come up I will add the last 12 night Baltic before and the first Med sailing after which would make it 30 or 31 nights depending on the whether the first Med is a 10 or 11 nighter. (Not sure on that but I will wait til the numbers come up before I check the finer points of my fantasy cruise arrangements!!!)

We did 25 nights in 2007. We loved every minute of it and did not get tired of the ship.
We did get a little tired of the dinners in the dining rooms every night, so we did a lot of room service and quick serve on deck 9.

I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

I cancel Baltic cruise and change over to 8 nights Dover to Barcelona... If I win lottery, switch back to Baltic B2B with 8 nights...:thumbsup2

All I have to say about that is "LUCKY". If I hit powerball tonight that's the first thing I'm booking is a summer on a Disney Cruise!;)

something like that isn't uncommon Cunard had someone living on the QE2 for about 4 or 5 years in the same room.

I have seen on tv where there is a ship in which people buy a room and live on board year round. I can't think of the name of the ship offhand, but they said you have to have a 5 million dollar net worth before they will even talk to you.

Ditto.
And I think that will be our longest ever... because our next longest one is 14nt (TA) and even the B2B to/Alaska... is still less than 15nt since they aren't 7nt cruises.

I wish I could stay a whole month or a whole summer or something. how cool would that be? although I don't think I'd want to go as far as LIVING on a cruiseship (and yes, I've seen that show too......)

The ship is called The World and is a ResidenSea ship.

For me, the most was 21 days on the Magic.
