LARRYYYY people are allowed to enjoy going on a ship and enjoying the cruise life Some people are too busy to plan, or bad at it, and the convenience of a cruise just appeals to them. The thought of boarding a tiny boat to go scuba diving terrifies the chit outta me and sounds more like torture. That is not a vacation to me I'd rather be forced to attend church on a cruise ship.But, you're ON a cruise ship. That's not a vacation. That's being ON a cruise ship. That they have added all those...amenities...merely reinforces the point; you're on a cruise ship...BUT...hey, we got us a dance floor and a gym and you can go to church! On their cruise ship...trying to figure the best way to get the most alcohol as cheaply as possible...to deal with...being on a cruise ship.
I was THIS close to booking that exact same cruise! My guy is insisting he'll enjoy a cruise more than an all-inclusive resort. I think we'd have fun no matter what but I see a lot more opportunities to be disappointed by going on a cruise. He's never done either and I've only done the resort route. It just seems like we'd have to spend way more money to enjoy all the amenities he's looking for vs. what'd we'd be spending at a resort. There just seems to be so much more fine print involved with cruises. And while I'm good at researching all that fine print so we're prepared, I just think as long as you're using the right resort company, resorts seem way easier to vacation with. There's a lot of fine print with cruises.We got back Saturday from a 7 day cruise on RCCL. We went to St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Curacao and Aruba. They were all beautiful islands, but, Aruba was the bomb!!!! We left out of Puerto Rico. That said, I think its the last time we will go cruising. Things have changed on the ships, it was like being nickel and dimed for every little thing. I think we will consider an all inclusive resort before booking another cruise. I did talk to another couple on the cruise who advised that Oceana Cruises, offers all inclusive cruising. Has anyone ever used them before? Also heard something about Viking Ocean cruises being all inclusive.
I'm hoping that if we do a cruise this year and we do my resort vaca next year, he'll realize I'm right about everything once again
