It depends on your personal style of play. Escorts will ultimately deal more damage than cruisers per hit, but cruisers have more weapons slots. So the trade off is, in essence, having one BIG bang or a half-dozen slightly smaller bangs.

Eleriel also brings up a point regarding training officers, but apart from training other tactical officers I don't think it would have much of an effect apart from ground combat.
