A Week At Sea: 7 Night Cruises

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.

For any type of 7- night cruise, try an advanced search on Cruise Sale Finder, which allows users to select a length as well as a destination, and even choose a cruise line or ship. This brings up all suitable options and 7 night cruise deals with a minimum of fuss!


I was employed as the District Sales Manager for Carnival Australia, based in NZ, before setting up Cruises Online, now Cruise Sale Finder, (the owners of this website) in 2008. I am passionate about cruising and have enjoyed many voyages to and around destinations such as Alaska, Mexico, South Pacific and New Zealand. I have cruised on Pacific Dawn, Pacific Jewel, Pacific Pearl, Pacific Sun, Pacific Star, Sun Princess, Golden Princess, Pacific Princess, Royal Princess, Celebrity Solstice, Celebrity Silhouette, Voyager of the Seas, Carnival Spirit and Carnival Pride.
