P510 vs s9300 - 40x vs 18x ?

SO ... For carrying around, taking quality pictures to print at 8x10 size, s9300 with the 18 zoom would you go for it over the P510 with 40 zoom. Is 18x enough or do most feel that the extra 22 zoom and other features make the P510, eventho larger, the better buy. My back up camera would be my wife's little Nikon 3100 5x camera. 14 day Alaska Cruise in June and 75 day Cruise to Japan, China, etc. in Sept. ??? I have been going back and forth for months looking at these 2 - pocket vs. pouch on belt or side.

I am seeing fantastic photo's from the p510 being posted. I know my tech. will not be as good, so I probably need all the help I can get from the camera - not a pro by any means. I sincerely thank you for all your input and suggestions
