Which double dip for 2014

My husband and I are going on an Alaskan cruise for 15th anniversary on NCL. We are not taking our daughter. We decided to do another short DCL cruise that includes 2 stops at CC. The Dream does one on 11-13-2014 and the Wonder does two; one is a 5 day and the other is a 4 day. We have already been on the Dream and loved it so it seems like a no brainier. But the Wonder offers an extra day so we could really take advantage of the kids club. Our daughter will be 4 at sailing. Any opinions?

I didn't see any double dips - can you list the dates for the Wonder one?

I would personally take the extra day. Go for the longer one!!

I've been on two 5-night double dips - one on the Wonder and one on the Magic. DD was 3.5 & 4 years old at time of sailing. I would hands down choose the Wonder. The #1 reason would be for one extra day. I've been on the Dream once and Fantasy three times and am looking forward to getting back on the Magic in Oct.; love the classics

Also, the Wonder stops at Key West, which we have never been but wanted to go. But the Wonder is slightly more expensive due to the extra day.

We took a 5 night double dip on the Dream last year and loved it. I am not a fan of sea days so I might choose the one with the least sea days. However, I would like to try one of the classic ships so the itinerary on the Wonder that visits Key West would be nice too.

Forgot to add...I would personally do a 5-night that also includes a call on Key West. But that's just me.

I've been on the Wonder, and will be on the Dream 3 weeks from today. I was researching future cruises thinking we might book one on the ship to get the discount. I was ecstatic to see the 5-night double dips next year! I cannot wait to book one! I say go for the longer one, always.
