    I have finally talked hubby into taking a cruise and am debating as to which cruise to take, the 3 or 4 day cruise. I have cruised once and he has never cruised. We will be doing 2 to 3 days at the Poly before or after. Sept. or beginning of Oct. is the time frame we are looking at.

    Thanks

    Well, I'd say the four day, as that way you get to experience each 'type' of day on a ship. A port day, a sea day and the wonderful visit to Castaway Cay. Three days (which are really only two) are just too darn short! You don't even have time to explore the whole ship.

    It seems reading these boards for a while, the general consensus is the 3d is too "rushed". Having the sea day makes a big difference as far as relaxation, exploring the ship, on board activities.
