Last year I went to St. Lucia w/ my family, and lugged a huge backpack w/ D800, D7000, and a bunch of lenses. The only gear that ever left the hotel was the D7000 and kit lens. I've since bought a Canon G15 for family trips and snapshots. It's pocketable, and allows me to enjoy the trip with my family, not be the geek dad photographer.

Granted, if you need anything wider than 24-28mm, or fast super tele, you will need a DSLR. I use my DSLRs for more serious nature photography, but as far as vacation photos, I am amazed what a decent P&S can do.
