Would You Rather #70: Go on a Cruise with Your Friends or Your Spouse?

Taking a break from the usual day to day activities to spend some relaxing days away in a new environment is luxury some get to enjoy and others can only dream of. Although those who work are all entitled to annual leave, some use that time to find something else to do to earn a little extra money. But rest is as equally important as work. Striking a healthy balance is good for our well-being.

Getting to go on a cruise with a loved one or friends sounds like a great plan to unwind and have some fun but may have its own drama to deal with. The fact that a couple decides to go on a cruise to spend time together doesn’t mean a fight or misunderstanding is off limits. Can’t imagine how unenjoyable it would be to be stuck alone with someone on a cruise with whom you’re not speaking. On the flipside, being stuck with each other would compel them to make peace and enjoy the treat they have spent their savings on.

Joining friends on a cruise also sounds like fun as that would mean more fun activities and long conversations. Having a disagreement with one could cause tension and make the moments spent together awkward for the entire group. But if that doesn’t happen, the experience could be a memorable one for all parties involved.

Choosing one over the other doesn’t mean one is downgrading the essence of its presence in one’s life; it’s just about personal preference or what one considers a priority at that particular point in time. A couple may plan to go on vacation with other couple friends to make it more exciting and that is great. Another couple overwhelmed with their work lives can also choose to go alone to rekindle their love.

That said, I’d love to do experience both. All things being equal, both of them would be memorable. Hope I get to someday.

What about you? Which party would you like to hang out with on a cruise and why? Can’t wait to read your thoughts!

    Well, my initial response was “my wife, of course!” But then I realized the traditional cruise really isn’t quite in our great vacations bucket list or lifestyle preferences. A windjammer cruise would be up there for me, but after her seasick reaction to our one-and-only whale-watch outing together, I don’t think she’d want to share in that. Still, we’ve loved taking the mailboat runs in Casco Bay, Maine. Would that count?

  2. I would rather go with my wife. The time spent being together on the cruise will be worth it for both of us.
    Friends come and go. But a wife remains.
