Default is a 7 day cruise worth the exrtra 100 dollars?

I sailed the Carnival Splendor to Bermuda out of NYC on a 7 day cruise.
I did not encounter any minors asking me to get them alcoholic drinks.

Formal nights were rather less-then-formal for some passengers who
showed up and were seated in the Main Dining Room wearing flip-flops
t-shirts, jeans and baseball caps for young guys (18 - 20 somethings),
tube tops, bathing suit wraps (peraiu sp?), flip-flops for the gals
(same age group). One young guy sported a t-shirt with a tux printed on
the front. That's about as formal as it got for this small minority of
over 18 and less than 28 people.

Those younger teens were accompanied by parents were at least making an
effort - business casual instead of the alternative dress described above.

is a 7 day cruise worth the exrtra 100 dollars vs. say a 5 day cruise?
I mean the 100 dollars is just for the room. There will be I think 1
or 2 more ports and that will cost and then the added drinks and added
gambling. so I figure the total will be somewhere around an extra 300
$$$. Would the 2 days be worth it or should I jsut tstick to the 5 day

Please dont tell me it is up to me I am looking for personal opinion
and perhaps personal experiences.

If you like to relax on a cruise, you get a better class of passenger
on a
longer cruise. They will be older and quieter. If you like to party
whole time, the length of the cruise is all a matter of how much
money you
want to spend.

so Less children on a longer cruise? That would surely be a good
thing. My last cruise was during the school year but there were still
teenagers begging me to get them some alcohol

I doubt you'll see much of a difference in number of kids between a 5
and 7 night cruise. The real factor is going to be time of year and
whether it's a school holiday/vacation. When you get up to 12 night
cruises you get less kids.

What cruise line did you do last time. Carnival? Is it normal to have
kids asking adults for alcohol? I've certainly never run into it when
I've cruised (but I've never been on Carnival).
