I bet you a dollar that you get off the ship wishing you had booked something longer. Watch out, it's addictive!

Hahahaha this is SO true. While I haven't hit the Mediterranean stage yet, we started with a 3 night and we already have a 4 night AND an Southern Caribbean booked! =)

^^Too funny on these^^ but true too!

Our first cruise, last year, was on the 4 night Dream but we knew ahead of time a 7 night would be much better but we knew it was to try out DCL and introduce our DS to cruising. Yep, it worked, we booked another one as an OGT about two weeks after returning and cruised 30 days after that and well, the rest is history and I'm already Gold!

We are actually doing our first 3 night cruise, on the new Magic this January since it fit our DS' school schedule for MLK weekend. We knew it would be hard or near impossible to check her out if we didn't pick the Mediterranean (summer) or off peak times. We know with a 3 night cruise we won't have the same experience as a 7 night cruise but since we know that, we go for the fun! We also don't have to see all the shows since we've seen all but one I believe.

I agree with the others, go for it - especially since you are already there!

Have fun,
Heather
