    I am a travel agent and I am very curious right now. With all the latest negativity around cruises would you consider a cruise for a vacation option.:daveandmo::partytime::icon_redface::eek::lighting1::bash:

    I would not - but not due to any negative stories but rather because I don't think I would like knowing my feet are not on the ground and the possible motion sickness.

    I love cruising. It is a very unique experience. It is a floating resort with an endless amount of activities. there is ALWAYS something to do and you cant do it all. There is always something to eat and you cant eat it all. The ships are so stable that in most cases you hardly even notice that you are at sea.

    The alcohol is expensive. There are kids. You have to remain clothed. Case closed. Give me TTR!

    I wholeheartedly agree with you. Cruising is a different vacation. Yes you have to pay for your alcohol....Although there are cruises in which alcohol is inclusive as well.
    I Love TTR, I love the people there, I love the staff, I love not seeing KIDS for a whole week or two...:huepfen021:I've been there 9 times and cant wait for trip number 10...But I love to cruise as well.

    no! not so much with the media and all of the accidents that they have been having, but the alcohol is way over priced!!! it is a bit far fetched to pay 24.00 for 5 bud lights!!! and if people think that the drinks are watered down at TTR, then go on a cruise and get one of there specials. i dont normaly drink vodka ect. i had 3 drinks in a row and diddnt even get a buzz!!

    :beer4:Most consumers are not aware that if having alcohol is an non negotiable for their holiday experience that it would be more efficient to book a cruise in which alcohol is all inclusive. That way you pay a little more up front instead of getting hit with a crazy bill at the end of your cruise. You also get better amenities as well. :musik026:

    No -

    Crowded pools, expensive drinks, people grazing at the buffets that look like those featured on People of Walmart", KIDS, very limited hours at ports of call which are too touristy.

    We prefer to relax.

    Very good point Chris and Christine. If you two ever change your minds and get curious you would do well to take a more upscale cruise in which children are scare and alcohol is included.These may cost a little more upfront but they are well worth.
    TTR's sister resort Desire is doing a cruise on one of the more upscale cruise lines in the near future.
