    Trying to decide between 3 or 4 day cruise, what is the day @ sea like that we would miss of we only took the 3 day? Thanks so much!

    Hi Jill,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  This is a great question - and although you can save a little money by opting for the the 3-night voyage, I have found it to simply not be enough time.  For my family, we love to make the ship our destination, there is so much to do and experience onboard - from high energy activities, to relaxing spa experiences. 

    If you have the option, I strongly recommend sailing on the 4-night voyage.  That extra day really makes a big difference in the overall experience.  You have a better opportunity to explore the ship and truly relax.  I found that on the three day, I would just figure out how to navigate my way around the ship and it would be time to disembark!

    One of the benefits to having a day at sea built into your itinerary is that should the weather be less than ideal while in Nassau or Castaway Cay - the captain can use the day at sea to attempt to find the sunny spot out on the seas so you can enjoy the sun and pools. 

    Good luck with your decision, I hope this helps!
