Did both at one time, now all cruises unless somewhere very close by.
As we age we want less hassles and cruising does it for us. Unpacking once, no looking for entertainment, no looking for restaurants, no staying in one place or car rental. We get a ride to the airport, get on a plane, have cruiseline transfers or taxi to the port and reverse on way back. Sometimes hotel between airport and port. This is why so many seniors cruise.
I am sure the ratio of cruises to total vacations goes up as a person ages. My ratio now is over 90%.
