March Trip - Parks or Parks Plus Cruise?

My DBF and I are heading to Orlando for a long weekend in March to celebrate my 35th birthday.

The two options we have are to fly in and do the parks only for a long weekend - or fly in and do the MK Wednesday night (for Wishes), go to Port Canaveral on Thursday for a 3 night cruise and then pop by the Wizarding World of Harry Potter on Sunday before flying home.

I can't decide and he's leaving it entirely up to me.

Things to consider:
  • We went on a cruise in 2011 and are most likely going on a Med cruise in August on Celebrity
  • We have never been to WDW together.
  • It's been an exhausting winter so far for us. We really, really need to relax.
  • I really want to see Wishes
  • I'd like to maybe build in a spa treatment in either scenario
  • Cost is similar for both scenarios

What would you all do? Parks only for a long weekend or parks plus cruise?

I would say do a long weekend at the parks. The extra travel would be more stress than fun. I would think about doing three days at Disney and two days at Universal/IOA. If you think you can afford it, do both on site. The Spas are pretty good at Disney World from what I've heard.
Four trips when I was a kid.
Christmas 1987,91 and 93 Off Site in Kissimmee and on I-Drive
Christmas 1989 CBR
June 2011 Off Site
July 2012 Pop Century
March 2013 All Star Sports
July 2014 Dis Exclusive ABD Backstage Magic

Maybe March 2015 trip to Universal Orlando (Going to the Dark Side maybe).
