Hello everyone I jus t would like to know what is the preferred vacation Island or cruise, I've been to Ocho Rios and I thought that was the vacation to beat all vacations it was absolutlely beautiful but the word on the street is there is no vacation like a cruise so anyone out there that has done both let me know your take on it.

I'm not a friend of "beach holidays" but love cruises. So the choice is an extremely easy one for me.
Best regards,

Raoul Fiebig

I've done both. Cruising is the best vacation.

The obvious answer your get out of this forum is cruising. But to give you a reason, imagine taking that beach vacation but on a different island each day, without having to pack and unpack or do any travelling. Then throw on top of that having everything planned out for you, shows, entertainment, dinning and have multiple choices for you on each.

I'm sure some people can't imagine being on ship, and love their beach vacations. I can't imagine being stuck at one beach and one resort for 7 days.

Another plus to a cruise is that if the weather is bad at X port, it usually is fine at the next port and so on. I'd hate to book a resort vacation and then get there and have rain for a week. And even if a cruise hits lots of rain during the week, there is so much to do inside the ship that you still don't feel cheated.

I have never done a beach resort but we are looking into doing Sandals in Jamaica, but at this point I would have to agree with the majority here, I think you do more and see more on a cruise, but of course I havent done an island vacation as of yet..
