I enjoy both, but like others have said you get to some more exotic places on a cruise. I have seen a lot of the US (49 states so far) so I like to see other places. My parents took us on land vacations all of our growing up life so now as adults, we've discovered cruising. We have a timeshare so we still do 7 day land trips occasionally . This is what our Las Vegas trip will be in Dec. When we do land trips we usually stay at a condo or resort and rent a car and branch out different directions each day. This way we don't get bored. We hope to go on an Alaskan cruise in June ,2004 so that will be my 50th! I need to figure out some sort of celebration as I step off of the ship for that 50th state!
