Cruise or All Inclusive resort for long weekend?

Jump to last reply

Hi my husband and I would like to go away for a long weekend for our anniversary. We are looking for something relaxing, easy to get to (from the states), and at a reasonable price. We have looked at cruises and there are some good 3-5 day ones out there. I don't know if you get as much with a cruise now as you get with an All Inclusive. I know the cruise pros are that you see more places, your meals (at least the buffets) are included, and someone else does the planning. The cons are that they are crowded, everyone getting on and off the boat at the same time and the stops aren't very long at the different areas. We know some All Inclusives have a lot of things to do but you would never leave the property. I think the rooms at the hotels would be better than the stateroom that we would select (yes the suites are nice but we are more on a oceanview maybe a balcony budget.) We would also have more freedom to do what we wanted on our time frame at an AI.

I am open to suggestions, feedback especially specific places/ cruises. We have looked at a Celebrity cruise that goes to Cozumel and Roatan, leaving out of Miami. We are looking at going in November.
Thanks for your ideas.
