WE do too, seems the only way we love to travel, a good deal too, much less stress-free than regular land vacations!

If that's your definition, then count me OUT.

We love to cruise, but more than that, we love to travel.

This year we returned to Palm Springs and revisited California's high desert and Joshua Tree National Park, one of our favorite places (and not served by any cruise line I know of). If you're very quiet up there, you really understand what the "sounds of silence" are. It is beautiful and inspirational. We just got back from a very long weekend in New York. We spent two weeks in Florida and another in a condo on Grand Cayman (we went by air), and waved at all the ships coming and going from our perch on the beach. We even went to Las Vegas for the first time in about ten years, just to see all the new stuff and giggle at the over-the-top garishness. We're planning an African safari for the fall. We may also do a riverboat trip from Amsterdam before the year is over (I guess maybe that's cruising).

Plus, we've done two cruises in the last year.

To each his own, but I can't imagine confining one's view of the world to seaports and day trips from a ship. In fact, we tend to use cruise stops as a way to decide whether this is a place we really want to see. If so, we put it on the list for a non-cruise return visit. That's what got us to Grand Cayman, and it's why we flew out to spend a couple weeks in Vancouver a couple years ago. My wife liked what she saw in Milan while there on business, so after a Med cruise that ended in Genoa, we scooted up there for four or five days. We often factor in cruise departure and arrival cities (and places nearby) in terms of their attractiveness for extended pre-and/or post cruise stays. We almost always add days at one or both ends.

As good as cruises are they're limiting in obvious ways, and we prefer a more comprehensive and more detailed view of things.

Its cruising for us......40 plus cruises and counting.....no tour can offer the consistantly good service and food and relaxation that cruises do. Hey...if we never even get off the ship, we have had a great vacation. Checking into and out of Hotels and renting cars and the hastle of unknown restaurants isn't a vacation. Its just more hastle and thats what we are trying to get away from by taking a vacation. I too understand wanting to explore some cities and places in more depth than a shore tour, but for relaxation to this family...cruising is it.........Yes were addicted......

I am addicted to cruising and will cruise as often as I can but I do still like other types of vacations. I will gladly take a vacation just sitting at my cabin on the lake or taking time to canoe and camp.
