canalplan.uk  will work it all out for you, just enter the route and hours per day. Even tells you where you can stop for the night.

If you use https://canalplan.org.uk/ you can work out all sorts of routes and times.

 

Create an account and log in and you can set your cruising speed and hours per day.

 

To answer your actual question, yes it's a nice cruise.

 

This is a trip of 160.88 miles and 102 locks from Ouse - Aire and Calder Junction to Liverpool.

This will take 82 hours and 58 minutes which is 11 days, 5 hours and 58 minutes at 7 hours per day.

Just check that the beam, draft and air draft of your boat will actually fit the route where you want to go.

Assuming you go by the L&L route, at a leisurely pace I reckon about two weeks but there's so many great places to stop on the way I would double that if you can.  Liverpool is a great destination too you will want to stay there at least a week. You could return by the Trent & Mersey to make it trip to remember.

At 5 hours per day you get 15 days or so. This is via the Leeds & Liverpool because the the Calder & Hebble is closed for the forseeable at Figure of Three locks.

 

This is a trip of 161 miles, 1¾ furlongs and 107 locks from Goole Boathouse Marina to Salthouse Dock.

This will take 79 hours and 2 minutes which is 15 days, 4 hours and 2 minutes at 5 hours per day.
