Short luxury cruise

Does anyone know if any of the so called luxury or sailing cruise lines offer short cruises, 5 days or less? Thinking Caribbean in spring. Really looking for a smaller boat option.
I suppose I should look for a cruise travel agent, any suggestions on how to find one?

Usually Caribbean cruises are a minimum of 7 days.

As for cruise agents, you might read other reviews in this forum. Vacations to go is one that I use and currently
is question no. 3 here.

There are a few others, but you can look at some of these. In the Caribbean, they are mostly 7 days or more.

SeaDream Yacht Club
Seabourn
Windstar
Regents
Oceania
Crystal

Shorter cruises are mostly to Bermuda and the Bahamas or Mexico. Of course, you could always book one of the more luxurious suite style cabins on one of the ships that do short cruises.

What ships have you cruised on before?

Luxury cruises tend to be longer. It's only lately that you've been able to take a one-week luxury cruise; before they were usually 10 nights or more. None of the cruise lines listed above offer short cruises (at least not that I know of unless it's a special or short repositioning cruise).

Doug is right. All those lines have minimum of 7 days, except for one 6 day cruise out of San Juan, but they are the smaller ships.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking. We are interested in a Windstar cruise but may not be able to take the time to go.
