An All Inclusive Resort or a traditional Cruise?
By Jen Campbell of Escape Destinations Travel
So what is the hype? Why the debate on which is preferred? Let’s go into further details so you can choose for yourself which one might meet your needs better!
An all inclusive resort includes everything! It’s not a la carte pricing like a cruise might be. With an all inclusive, it’s true that what you see is what you get. A cruise might offer you a very low up-front cost for you, but then there are so many extras that get added in there. Drinks, shore excursions, tips and gratuities, optional dining venues….it just makes sense to consider a true all inclusive, whereby the price is all inclusive, nothing hidden or extra to contend with. Some of us are truly getting tired of getting nickled and dimed to death, and with an all inclusive, you know exactly going into the vacation what your total cost would be.
An all inclusive has an appeal to many people: couples, honeymooners, families, destination and wedding groups, groups, etc.
If you’re a family, the all inclusive property offers the entire family wonderful amenities and activities for nearly every age group. Kids can chow all day, and play all day and you’re not paying for anything extra, it’s all included.
For couples and honeymooners, this type of vacation is truly relaxing. You don’t have to worry about planning that next excursion, where to go when you get off the ship, and where to have dinner each night. This is a less stressful vacation, because decisions are already made, you’re forced to show up and simply relax and enjoy your stay, without the hustle and bustle of a ship and their various, constant activities. Especially after the stress of planning a wedding, honeymooners can simply relax and enjoy each other.
Whichever vacation type you decide, it will be worth it in the end. We all deserve a much needed break to recharge and refresh ourselves from the everyday hustle and bustle!
