Deck vs. Keel Stepped Masts

I''m at the beginning stages of buying a boat that can stand up to some serious cruising (eventually). I''ve always been of the opinion that keel stepped masts are the best for cruising as they are less prone do dismasting in heavy weather. In my search however, I have found some very sea worthly boats with deck stepped tabernacle mounted masts. Does anyone have an opinion regarding this issue?
