A Week At Sea: Why We Love 7 Night Cruises
A week is a great length of time for a cruise! Sure, longer is better- but we don't all have the money or vacation time for a lengthy holiday. 7 nights allows time for a few port stops, a few relaxing days at sea and a total unwind from the pressures and stresses of real life.
Where to Cruise For 7 Nights?
7 night cruises can be found anywhere, especially in the major cruising grounds like the Caribbean, Mediterranean and South Pacific. As these areas have plenty of ports in a compact area, a week gives time to visit a few places with a nice ratio of time at sea and time in port. In the Caribbean, 7 night cruises often depart from somewhere in Florida and usually visit 3 ports in the eastern, western or southern Caribbean. In the Mediterranean, the concentration of ports means a 7 night cruise can get in up to 6 port stops, so these are great for the adventurous and restless cruiser!
Spotlight on the South Pacific
The South Pacific is great for 7 night cruises! P&O Australia specialises in these, with two week-long itineraries departing regularly from Brisbane, exploring New Caledonia and Vanuatu (Pacific Island Hopper) and tropical Northern Queensland (Great Barrier Discovery). For the more adventurous cruiser, Paul Gauguin is a boutique cruise line which cruises in the beautiful French Polynesia. Their 7 night cruises depart from Papeete, Tahiti's capital.
