The length of a cruise can determine everything from how much you pay and how much you pack to the fellow passengers you’re likely to encounter. For someone like me who’s partial to voyages of a week or less, a sailing as long as a world cruise would probably be enough to cause a major psychotic breakdown. Likewise, those who are partial to longer cruises would probably avoid three-night spring break sailings like the plague.
In line with the above, I got to wondering about the longest cruises people have taken.
What we asked: What’s the longest cruise you’ve ever taken?
What they said: A 58 percent majority said their longest cruise has been six to 12 days. Another 39 percent said 13 to 30 days. A further 2 percent said less than five days, and the remaining 2 percent have taken world cruises.
What it all means: As expected, most folks skip the shortest sailings but still keep their trips less than two weeks. We’re not surprised by this, but we did think that the number of passengers in the shorter-cruise set would be a little higher. What do you think? In your opinion, what’s the perfect cruise length?
