Tell me why I should change from 3 to 4 nights on the dream!
 
Talk me into changing my 3 night to 4 nights on the dream.

More fun?

We don't like to cruise for less than 7 days.

Because after you get off the ship, you'll wish you had stayed on at least one more night? ;)

That sea day really does make it seem longer.

We did the 4 night. We felt like it was the perfect amount of time to see/do everything we wanted without getting bored. Our friends did the 3 night and regretted it. They said they just started really getting into the cruise and relaxing, and then it was time to pack up!

Because its really only like 2 1/2 days. You board Thurs, and you are off early Sun AM. There's not much time to relax. You are at Nassau, next day CC, then boom! It's over. There's nothing like a relaxing day at sea ;)

We chose the 3 night for our first cruise since we weren't sure what to expect or if we would like cruising. We got off the boat wishing we had at least done the 4 night.

There's so much to do on the ship, and unless you plan on skipping Nassau (recommended) to enjoy it, 3 nights is not nearly enough. If you decide to dine at Palo or Remy you miss one of the main dining rooms, and they're each a unique experience that you'll regret missing. Palo brunch is only offered on days at sea, which you don't have with a 3 night cruise. Maybe a Disney cruise is an everyday occurrence for you, but if not, the small increase in price for a 4 night cruise is well worth it to extend the enjoyment of a rare treat.

Thanks all for the feedback.

We won't be getting off the ship at Nassau so we do have that day.

The reason I'm thinking about it really is for the Remy brunch. We are at Disney pre and post cruise so just means one less day at the parks.

It might end up being a pain to move around my DVC so really thinking it over.

If you're already at the parks I would not hesitate to do an extra day on the ship and sacrifice a day in the parks.

The day at sea. Lots of things offered to do during the day. Also sitting on deck 4 relaxing while watching the ocean go by is really a neat experience.

I agree. WDW feels like hard work compared to cruising. Watching the ocean go by may sound boring compared to all the attractions at WDW but really it's sooooo awesome. :cloud9: Sea days are the best.

I agree with pp, anything less than 7 nts is too short. Dh & kids have rebelled against short cruises.

3 night cruises feel like an overcrowded mall during Black Friday. Ick. Rush rush rush. People are not nice on 3 night cruises, in general. The whole vibe is very crowded and stressed out. Hard to relax, etc.

I couldn't agree more!! :thumbsup2
Even ds12, then 11, complained about the kids on our 3 nt leg of our b2b on the Dream in Nov 2011.
"They have no idea how to behave on a ship." :lmao:
