You could have a look at NCL and Holland America gets a plug for more leisurely; relaxing type cruises now part of Carnival which could be another option. No doubt others will contribute further.

NCL Freestyle - completely do your own thing and with big choice of restaurants (some have cover charge)- we liked it although we don't mind getting dressed up!

Most floating resorts give a choice of dining options if you really can't be bothered with the formal approach. American ships are particulalrly good at more 'casual' dining. Personally I think you are missing out on a lot of the joy of cruising, but each to his own. Enjoy which ever ship you decide on.

Take hotels for instance; they charge a room rate and it doesnt matter if there are two people in the room or one perso...

By Gemma Coles

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries.
