cursors are generally to be avoided, whether you run in a Virtual or a Physical machine.
there is a nice technique to avoid cursors (using a "temp" tables). the only downside of that technique is that it might use more t-log activity (in tempdb), but that shall only play when doing very large resultsets to process.

and in case you can avoid the looping altogether, the better.
