Its certailny a 2 dive a day experience. So for people that want more a liveaboard experience, its not for you. But if you have non divers in your group, its a great way to go. And the days of having to get dressed up every day for dinner is no longer the case either. But its an option if you choose to.

Check with the cruise line if you aren't sure. While some lines have done away with the formal dress nights, others have not--though these tend to be the really old-school lines like Holland America and Cunard. On some vessels, Formal night is limited to one or two evenings during the cruise.
Personally, I enjoy putting on my white dinner jacket and going to such things. Makes me think of how it used to be in what I perceive as a gentler, more genteel time.

Now I have a diving addiction, I'll probably opt for a liveaboard.

I have to admit at first I wasn't too thrilled about going. Not that I don't want to try a cruise, but it will cut into my diving time!! We are going to Alaska, so no diving will be done by me!!
I do, however, think it will be awesome to get on the boat and just BE there!! Do what you want, when you want...drink what you want!! Sounds like an amazing way to RELAX!!
PLEASE don't throw things at me.....BUT....This actually appealed to me more than doing a liveaboard (smaller quarters) and nothing else to do BUT dive.
I am however breaking out and doing my first liveaboard to Turks and Caicos in September!!
I think I'm a dive junkie!!!
If you can't eat it or play with it,
Just pee on it and walk away.

I dropped cruising because of my aquired addiction to Diving.Would rather stay in 1 place & have the chance to explore land venues on my own time.Have fun setting sail.

Our only other cruise was Alaska on another relatively small boat that could go through the inland passages and into Glacier Bay (1400 pax). No diving for me (warm water wus) but one of the excursions offered was dry-suit snorkeling (KMA).
Sara_The_Brown took a caribbean cruise out of PR and I used some contacts to arrange pickup at the ship for her with local dive operators. She loved it. I don't know if any really cater to divers so you're choosing a 2 tank dive vs seeing the topside sights since they generally pull in for just part of the day.
Cruises are good deals in the sense of accurately predicting your costs, and traveling with your hotel & restaurant. It isn't my thing since I like to explore and stay awhile getting closer to the local culture, food etc.
