Bently57 Posted October 20, 2013 #1 Share Posted October 20, 2013 We just got back from an all-inclusive vacation. We had never done one before, and thought we should at least try it. Well...the bottom line is that it was very nice, but in the end...not for us. Some people avoid cruises because they are afraid they will feel 'trapped.' In our case, we felt more trapped in the all-inclusive. While very nice, there wasn't a lot to do besides lounging at the pool, drinking, and pool games. While I do like those things; 7 days of it is a LOT. The entertainment options after 5 pm were pretty light. You could not really walk to town at night; it would be too dangerous. In the day, it could be done, but it was a 30 minute walk along a beach with a lot of obstacles and deserted buildings, and it was around 90 degrees. We ended up taking a private tour in the area in the middle of the week to help break things up, but it was expensive. The food, the drinks, the service were spectacular...but a cruise, for us, offers so much more. Has anyone else out there had the same experience?
