I can see why some people do not like to cruise. I've heard some people say they do not like having to be at a certain place at a certain time for the activities, like the shows and bingo. But I suppose any vacation you take there are time restrains. Also, not being enough time in port. Some people like to visit a place and really get to know it as if they were living there. Time in port on a ship doesnt allow you time to do this. Also, if people like quiet, it may be hard to find on the ship other than on your balcony and perhaps some people feel they could be on a balcony anywhere. So, if you are not impressed with the ship and really want to get to know a place, cruising may not be for you. However, it is a great way to get a little taste of everywhere so that you can return on land to your favorite places for the next time!
