We are not cruise people but I can see the advantage of seeing a bit of many places that you normally might not see....but..the couple we rent our Paris apartment from (live in New Zealand) just spent two months in Paris and now are on the QE2 for 7 days ..England to NYC...with only ocean to look at for SEVEN DAYS...yes, the ship is an entertainment center but I would go whacky not being able to leave it for 7 days....and have only open sea to look at....

As I said earlier, to each, his own......that's the part I find most relaxing. I could kick back on the balcony or in a lounge chair with my Kindle reading and staring out at the ocean for hours on end. Not a care in the World.

And I can do that on a beach too. I find the water has a calming affect/effect (I never know which one) on me whether I am on land or on a boat, either large like a cruise ship or small like a run about.

I agree. That's why I love Beachside Villas so much! I sit in my comfy chair in the shade and stare at the ocean or read my book, or nap, and I don't have a care in the world!

Someone suggested to me once to equate the "e" in "result" with effect.

Originally found SXM on a cruise in 1999. Then booked SXM for our honeymoon in 2000. We've been going back to SXM and doing cruises ever since...probably over 60 cruises. Cruises are my favorite for nightlife. No driving, no cash needed, many different bars and dancing. When staying in SXM for 18 days this summer, we MAY go out 1 or 2 nights. Beach all day, dinner at villa, then bed....repeat.
