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.

This is the larg...

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
