doczoidberg: trappedspirit: doczoidberg: I keep telling her that cruises are for lazy a-holes who can't plan a real vacation,Vacations are for lazy a-holes. GBTW!No, vacations should be lots of hard work with plenty of stress and fighting thrown in the mix.Damnit!
Corvusnex: I'm curious, WhippingBoy, what in your opinion makes my post insufferable?
Corvusnex: You get what you pay for.I have been on 6 cruises with 3 different cruise lines. I have never had a bad experience, or even a ho-hum one. I have had a genuinely good-to-great time on each one. It partly depends on what your expectations are. When I go on vacation, I want to be: 1) catered to; and 2) be presented a variety of options.Cruises offer a similar level of catering to all-inclusive resorts. I believe the advantage of cruise ships is that, if you take the opportunity, it allows a person to SAMPLE a variety of different places and activities. If you go to resort, you spend all of your time there. And lots of the all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean are located in areas you wouldn't want to visit anyway (MX and the DR come to mind), so many people never leave the resort. With a cruise, if you find out you like a place after your 8-12 hour stay (6-10 in reality), then you can plan a longer visit on your own at a later date. If the place is boring as hell (Aruba comes to mind), then you can write that off without having to waste an entire week there.To each their own. It's your vacation, try to have fun.
