I tried to respond to the end of yours but I am not smart enough to figure that out!

Looking forward to the read!
Ahhhhh, that makes more sense. Then, yes, I guess a 7-day cruise is in order since, if I read you correctly, it will be a couple of years before your next one. Not that ever going on a 7-day would be a bad thing. Alas, it looks as though our next one will be only 4 days, though we've decided to make a 5-6 day sidetrip to WDW before that cruise in 2013. Oh, dear. That's nearly two years off!

[QUOTE=ladybug23]1. DH and I agreed that we really don't ever want to do a 4 day cruise again. WAAAAAAYYYYY too short and honestly don't know how people do the 3 day cruises. We were only just getting used to the ship layout and how to navigate the decks when it was time to get off. We also felt like if you missed your ONE chance to see the new POTC movie, you were out of luck and there were no other opportunities. There were many other things where you only got one chance to see something, so if you missed it that was it. On 7 night cruises you get several chances to see things - so you don't feel pressured to make bad choices on what to do with your time. Our cruise did feel a bit abbreviated since, just as you state, one just gets used to the ship's layout about the time the cruise ends. There were a few places we never explored (well, quite a few, actually) and some experiences we wished to try that we didn't have time to enjoy. Unfortunately, I don't think a 7-day is in our plans or budget.

2. The mini golf and basketball court - YES, just like your TR states, they ARE directly above Palo's and Remy's. And while at night dinner may not be impacted but by an occasional thump - Brunch is an entirely different story. I couldn't wait to leave my wonderful brunch to escape the thumping and thudding of the basketball court directly above my head. Bad enough it was a late drunken pirate night the evening before, but really? The poor designer that came up with that layout and did not call for extra layers of sound proofing between those two decks - please tell them to find another job!!! Seriously! I felt like I was eating a fine brunch at the High School gymnasium. Sorry to, umm, hear that you had a tougher experience during the brunch--it's not something we had considered but will if we get the chance to brunch next time. I understand using every bit of available space on a cruise ship, but somehow this particular arrangement escaped the eyes (and ears) of the designers.
