All Inclusive -vs- Cruise w/ 2 Teens

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to take my two daughers to either the Bahama's or St. Thomas. They are 16 and 18. For those of you who have done the all inclusives in Bahama;s please give me your thoughts on the best resort. I understand Rui is good but there amenites are limited and Atlantis next door does not allow full use of their facilities. Breezes appears to have many negative reviews. The PI Harbor....who wants to look at a marina???

Now, Plan Two: St. Thomas...has anyone done an all inclusive there? There are plenty of options for heading out to see the sights, so this is high on my list.

Cruises seem to be getting a blackeye with all of the extra "charges"....no inclusions of soda, beer, wine or alcohol and the suggestions of tipping the stewards $10 per day to be sure your cabin in done early. The cost for the shore excursions is incredible. The ships appear to be older, dark and in need of TLC. We are in the Washington, DC area and the ones that leave from Baltimore are 10 years plus old. None leave from Norfolk, VA
So there's the additional flight supplement to consider.

Please share your thoughts and experiences. They are much appreciated. Thank you.
