Growing up, I had the privilege of going on many cruises because my parents absolutely loved to cruise. As an adult, and a mom, I had never planned a cruise vacation until a few years ago, wanting my kids to experience the difference between a resort vacation and an adventure at sea. We took a Caribbean cruise from Miami to the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Grand Turk, St.Thomas and St. John. It was amazing family bonding time; however, after the trip, I couldn’t help but reflect on the pros and cons of cruising. For me personally, the pros as cons weigh pretty evenly, and I believe it really comes down to personal preferences.
