So, I'm 99.99% sure it will be much too short for DH and I, but I really don't have any idea if the kids will love or hate it - I can't even begin to guess what they will think! So I wouldn't want to do something longer and have them end up hating it. I also wouldn't travel from MA to FL for just a 3 night cruise, and would def. combine with a WDW trip, which we're diong for 6 nights pre-cruise.
This is exactly what we are planning too! I hope your trip is magical! Come back and report if you feel like it!
me and DH DD10, DD8, DD6 Thanks Kook!

My thoughts exactly. DW and I are doing a four night Dream cruise only so we can say we have seen the ship. But I'm sure four nights will be way too short. Can't work a BB into our schedule for 2013.

One of my favorite cruises was a 3 night when just I and my 7 year old daughter went, leaving Mom and 3 year old son at home.

It was the perfect length for some serious quality time with her and I, yet she did not have time to start missing her Mom.

The whole three days, we were never apart, and I just did whatever she wanted to do, when she wanted to do it.

I haven't been on a 3 or 4 nt cruise, just a 7 and an 8 coming up in 9 days. I would suggest though doing at least a 4 that includes a full day at sea. This way you can experience a couple ports and a sea day. For me a sea day is just as fun as port days as you never know what you might see at sea. Most of your 7 day and longer itineraries include at least 1 sea day, most of them 2 or more. Good Luck!
