I agree, cruises imo take more prep, and basically more energy,…like if you need a bandaid in the middle of the ocean …Oh s$#@.

Love this analysis! I have only been on all-inclusive land resort vacations and one cruise, so it was interesting to hear your comparison from a perspective with almost opposite experience! I still cant decide if I would personally rather cruise or land, so I guess I'll have to try a few more of each option πŸ˜‚ still haven't been to Disney so that might be a game changer too!
I did see the ad βœ”

Hi Morgan. Regarding the cost difference, are there single supplement charges at this resort like there are on cruises for those solo cruisers who stay in a standard cabin?

Morgan – I found you during my research for my first cruise. I continue to watch because I love to go places and I love talking about it. Admittedly – the cruise was only "ok" and I've gone back to land vacations. The main reason why is the time element. Feeling herded and getting on and off the ship was something I didn't like. I make a lot of plans and do a lot of coordination for work and while there's some for excursions off resort I can choose to hang out as long as I want while not missing the ship! I also love swimming and beach laying!

Once after a cruise, I went to a restaurant and stood up to leave before we got the check. Fortunately we realized where we were before we left the table! We had gotten use to just leaving after eating on the lido deck! That would have been embarrassing!

Well now I have done a cruise and know what it’s like and as you have such a big back library of videos on cruises maybe you should turn yr attention to land holidays more . Would love to see some of those . But really do what you like it’s your life πŸ˜‚ . Ahhh 1st world problems 🀣

I’m feeling like I’m going to need a holiday after our cruise next month πŸ˜‚
We are doing city tours (organised by me 😬) and most of our ports are far away from the cities . There is going to be lots of early mornings! I’m going to book us for a holiday in October

Your out-takes crack me up! I laughed out loud multiple times. In fact, I began to feel your stress. I actually enjoy a cruise more than a resort, having done land vacations for about 30 years and then discovering cruising over the past 15 years. I feel cruising offers the best of both worlds combined. After over 30 cruises and visiting most ports of call multiple times, I tend to spend more time onboard and simply don't get off the ship until I'm back to my home port. This results in my booking ships, not itineraries. I love a floating resort!

Welcome home Morgan 😊 we do every second year as in one year a cruise and the next a cruise with a city break every few months.
We find cruises more busy as we cruise in Europe and there's loads to do /see!
The resort holiday is more relaxing and its usually easier to get a sunbed by the pool and the drinks are cheaper πŸ˜‰ but I still love cruising ❀

Nice comparison, thanks! I would definitely enjoy seeing more about various resorts. Cruising is great but sometimes staying put is the thing to do. Loved your blooper ending! πŸ˜‚

I agree with you differences in the style of vacations. It really depends on what type of vacation you are wanting. Travel or relaxation.

Hi Morgan. I found that a cruise allows me to visit many different ports which are included in the cost of the cruise. Staying in a resort is one destination for a given cost. The cost of travel here in Australia is expensive because of the distances that have to be travelled. I will give you an example. I travelled solo from Sydney to Perth a distance of 4,500 kilometres by train. This cost me $7000. I am going on a trans Pacific cruise Vancouver to Sydney which cost me $10,000. Train 4 days. Cruise 32 days. Cruise is all inclusive. Train only part of a 10 day land holiday. Cruise is more value for me.
