Default POLL- Land, Sand or Sea??

Perhaps and unfair question on a cruise web site <G>, but...
What would your first choice be for a vacation... a land trip.. a beach resort.. or a cruise?

Having just returned from a short visit to Las Vegas.. I have to tell you.. I was sorry it wasn't a cruise. So my list in order would be 1. Sea 2. Land 3. Sand

I'm with you! Sea is definitely #1, with Land #2 and Beach Resort #3. It's been awhile since we've done anything other than cruising for our "main" vacations. We'll do extended weekend trips on land, but we'd probably cruise for those too, if we had the opportunity! Unfortunately, Seattle has a short "cruise ship season" or we'd be on a 3-day PNW cruise every month!

I agree with you, Kuki
I have lived next to the Ocean for over 30 years and I see the beach weekly and have no desire to be at a Beach Resort, but as soon as I see a ship I get that itch for a Cruise. Any other vacation wastes too much time, getting there, finding accommodations, and looking for entertainment, transportation, food and beverage.
With a cruise itís all at your doorstep.

Usually I would say CRUISE. But we just got back from the Rhapsody and now I'm not sure. This one was different and although we had a great time and I'm sure we will go again one day I'm glad to be home and am not planning another one. I met Vicki and Denny from the cruise boards and had a great time and met lots of wonderful people but I guess that was part of the problem. I had more fun at the hotel alone with my hubby the night before (By the way the San Luis in Galveston is awesome!) than the whole time on the cruise. We are social people and it seemed that no matter where we went - even the cabin the phone would ring - we were never alone. I know we talk to too many people but it just happens. Even when we went out on deck (alone for once) right before dinner to see the full moon two ladies walked up and then they started talking to us and we had maybe 30 seconds alone to see the moon. I know it is our fault but I missed my hubby and he was always right there - isn't that weird??? Everytime we walked away to go to the bathroom or the room from the pool we would end up being gone for 30 minutes to an hour by the time we were stopped by people we had met. For the next while anyway it will be land in our RV..... Debbie

Cruise! Cruise! Cruise! Cruise! Cruise! Cruise! Cruise!
Then land, then sand.
Sand is a very low third. I am not a beach person. I love to snorkel on the islands, but never lay out to suntan. I burn even with SPF 50 so no thanks.
Favorite Land trips;
Vegas
New Mexico (Carlsbad, Old Tucson)
Niagara Falls
Colorado
Florida
Mississippi

I've had more trouble walking the last couple of years so the answer would have been cruising. However, I'm expecting my joint problems will go away soon and I am looking forward to some land based vacations. I want to go to a dude ranch and horseback ride and fly fish and hike again. I want to go to Prague and walk its cobblestone streets. Then I want to cruise again. Preferably an adventure cruise like Antarctica when climbing in and out of a Boston whaleer won't be so difficult. I suspect I'll like both land based and cruise vacations about the same.

Hard choice, but for now I'd have to say cruising is number one, land is next and sand is last.

See a pattern here? IMHO the only way to take a vacation is to cruise.

Cruise, land, and sand.

I would take a lot more land vacations if my future hubby got over his irrational fear of flying... but cruises are such great vacations that for the moment it's fine with me. My mom and I are planning a non-cruise vacation to Britain in a year and a half, so that should satisfy somewhat my need to see non-Caribbean places.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Cruise, then land, then sand.......love to cruise, love to see places in the world that you can't get to by cruise ship (gasp!), and have made so many friends cruising that I have to visit them on land! But don't like to sit out and tan...will go in the water for periods of time and then it is back to the shade or indoors, so a beach resort just would not be for me.

I may get blasted off this board but my list would be sand, cruise, land mostly from the practical standpoint that we're only an hour from Cocoa beach and I'd rather have a less expensive sand vacation than no cruise vacation due to lack of $.
I guess the ulitmate would be a cruise with lots of sand ports.

I would really like #1 #1 #1 #1 but that was not one of the options.

1. Cruise
2. Land
3. Sand

When we go to Costa Rica, I always convince Jose to combine the land trip with a 2 or 3 day stay at an all-inclusive beach resort on the Pacific coast. So far, my favorite has been Barcelo Playa Tambor. It's a lot like being on a cruise, with all the food, and even all the drinks you want, included. They have live music and entertainment in the evenings, pool time or beach activities during the day. Even a small casino! We do as much or as little as we feel like, and really go back to our little house and all our kids and grandkids relaxed and ready to go again!

We try to do little land trips all the time, even if just long weekends. Heck, I'll be on a weekend land trip to Long Beach this weekend to see my daughter. We were in Flagstaff the weekend before last. We'll be in Nogales the first weekend in November. Stay home? Not if I can find somewhere to go! !
