Seeking Opinion on 4-day Cruise

We went on the Fantasy in August and fell in love with the whole DCL cruising. We've cruised before on other lines (sometimes for the itinerary or port departure) but this was our first DCL. And now we're really hooked and want to go again...and again!

My husband is currently deployed, and I had booked a WDW trip for just myself and my son (8) for late February. Now there are two pressing matters on either weekend (before we were to leave and the one we were to return) that are going to compress our relaxing trip, and I've started to be concerned that our relaxing trip would be stressful instead!

So...I started considering a cruise! Just myself and the ds. I really don't want to do 7 days (Port Canaveral) because it would mean over a week out of school for him so considering a 4 day in January or February. The cost of cruise is way less that our room only reservation for WDW!

The question...will I be disappointed in a 4 day after doing the 7 day? We would get off in CC and probably not in Nassau (Unless we go do the pirate museum for a bit of educational experience). With no other adult, I don't plan to book Palo, spa, etc. so it would just be a few days of relaxing.
