    I just want to chime in to say that we have done 3 Royal Caribbean cruises and 1 Celebrity. Both are great and they are the same company. However, unless you are over 50 years old, go with Royal Caribbean. There was absolutely no one our age on the Celebrity cruise that we did in the Caribbean. It was many 80+ year olds snoozing by the pool, with the rest in the 50-80 age group. Royal Caribbean on the other hand will have people of all age groups, and their entertainment, service and food are all great.

    We prefer a resort over a cruise.  With a cruise you are restricted to their schedule. Some ports of call might be 10-12 hours while others might only be 6-8.  Either way we found that we didnt always have the time to do everything we would have liked.  We did a 7 day Caribbean cruise and honestly by day 5 I just wanted off that damn boat.

    With a resort we could pick what days we wanted to just relax by the pool and what days we wanted to be more active and explore.

    Hi, I’m new here. I can’t find new threads, I choose topics that are interesting to me for discussion and only those that have not been answered for a long time appear. I probably haven’t figured out how the site works yet. And if we talk about cruises and resorts, then I bet on resorts, as many of you do, looking at the vote. Besides, I’m seasick and the cruise could be a disaster for me.

    lovegrowshere :  While we did have a great experience on our one cruise (Spain, France, Italy via Royal Caribbean), we overwhelmingly prefer land trips. The only reason we decided on a European cruise was because we wanted to see a lot of destinations in one place and it was easier to get to all of them while staying on a ship and not worrying about lugging our things around on trains or additional flights or booking multiple rooms and worrying about transportation. So if you want to see a lot of destinations without worrying about packing up and traveling every few days then a cruise is a great option. We do prefer to pick one or two destinations and spend longer enjoying the area though. And thanks to the cruise, we now know where we’d like to go back and spend more time in Spain and Italy.
