I do prefer all-inclusive resorts in Mex/Carib over cruises, but cruises are fun too. The huge
boatsships they are building now are basically floating resorts, with multiple restaurants and a great variety of entertainment. Yes, there is a "sheep herding" aspect to them, but you get to wake up in a different place every morning, which is kinda cool. One problem the nickel and diming on board, and even if you are moderate drinker, you will ring up quite to bill at the end of the trip.
But when I go on "tropical" vacations, I prefer to plant my a$$ down by a pool/ocean and drink all day, so all inclusives are more my style. Mrs Red Five is more of the "get out and do things" type, so she likes being able to see different things on a cruise.
One other piece of advice, the time of year greatly impacts price. Fall (aka Hurricane Season) is the cheapest, where as winter through spring is more expensive. Also, we will always fly down to the port a day early, because you never know what will happen with weather/mechanical issues and the ship ain't waiting for you.
