View Full Version : High seas on 4day vs. 7 day

Are the seas rougher on the 7 day cruises than on the 3 and 4 day cruises? What is everyones experience?

We have done the 3day twice and have had no problems. We are planning the 7-eastern next year and seem to see many posts about how rough the seas are on the 7 days.

Is this true or is it just time of year. Are the seas worse on the 7days because the destinations are further from the mainland? Are the 3/4 days calmer because of protection from the bahamian islands?

I would guess that winds play alot in the waves. Does anybody have any insight into this and when the winds / waves are the worst?

I would hate it if I was cruising in high seas for seven days then couldn't even get to CC because of the swells / wind or whatever.
