    What is an All Inclusive Vacation?
    By Wayne Bass
    Cruises appeal to many travelers because they are considered all-
    inclusive vacations. Pay one price and receive accommodations, meals,
    entertainment, and transportation between island and port
    destinations. Most cruises do not cover shore excursions, alcoholic
    beverages, and gratuities.
    Many land-based resorts also refer to themselves as all-inclusive.
    These properties offer a different set of included amenities. So what
    does it really mean to be all-inclusive?
    If you've been debating the merits of cruise and resort vacations,
    we've come to your aid. We've compared the all-inclusiveness and
    considered the pros and cons of both resorts and cruises to help you
    choose a vacation. The question of whether cruising or land based all-
    inclusive offer the better value for your money and which is the
    better choice for your travel preferences. Is one that largely depends
    on what you expect?
    Advantages of a Cruise:
    Different ports of call
    No need to pack and unpack, take your hotel room with you.
    Entertainment, Casinos, Spas, Children Programs.
    Great food, Relaxation at sea;

    Advantages of a Resort (Land Based):
    Relaxed on your own schedule
    Most have private beaches to soak up the sun.
    Use of non motorized water equipment.
    Gratuities and drinks are usually included in the base price.
    What's included?
    All-inclusive cruises and resorts tend to include different amenities
    in the base price. Book a mainstream cruise, and you'll receive
    accommodations, all meals and snacks, certain beverages at meal times,
    use of the ship's facilities (such as the pool, kids club, and fitness
    center), onboard activities and entertainment, and transportation
    between ports-of-call. You will have to pay extra for certain types of
    soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, gratuities, spa treatments, shore
    excursions, airfare, and airport transfers. Luxury lines may include
    gratuities and alcohol in their base price.
    Book an all-inclusive resort package, and you'll receive
    accommodations, all meals and beverages, nightly entertainment, access
    to the resort's facilities, use of all non motorized water-sports
    equipment (such as snorkeling gear, sailboats, and windsurf boards),
    and gratuities, higher-end properties, such as Sandals and Super
    Clubs, often include scuba diving in the cost as well.
    Jose Perez the Owner of Travelersbest.com in Miami, Florida says "they
    are both considered all-inclusive it really depends on the taste of
    the customer and what they are looking for, he makes it clear that he
    offers all types of vacations. He explains further that a good Travel
    Professional seeks to develop the best fit for the traveler and
    selects vacations from that information".
