Cruising is a great way to see the world without going broke in the process. Granted you may only be in port for 12 to 14 hours but you can get a flavor of the stop.
Food for most part is above average with multiple eating options with no adde costs and up scale is available for small fees.
Ship tours are usually the best to insure you don't get left behind, and yes I have seen that happen when folks go out on their own and miss the sailing.
I prefer The larger as they tend to have much more to do and I for one don't notice any crowds.
Been on 17 cruises and wish i could convince my better have to go more often.
Best trips for just getting away are west bound transatlantic's. Cheap, relaxing, and still a few port stops.
I have done both. Bus tours with a guide, packing and unpacking every day, eating two star meals and staying in two star motels. I have also gone on a few cruises. A cruise is better by far. A greater value,
better food, more relaxing and more room to get away from the idiot stranger you might be sitting near, if on a bus tour for seven days.
