Cruises: What am I missing?

I'm not sure why, but lately, I've received a lot of email offers to take a cruise. Out of curiosity, I looked at the prices and although they docked in somewhat interesting and warm-sounding place, I did not find them particularly inexpensive.

Hence, just another reason why I have absolutely no interest in ever going on a cruise.

My scope of the cruise scene is limited, I admit I'm cobbling together an opinion based on news snippets about missing passengers and buffet food poisonings and after watching way too many episodes of "The Love Boat."

Although I like the idea of being on water, the thought of being "trapped" on a boat with so many people I don't know instantly creates waves of discomfort for me. And I don't know how to play shuffleboard.

I wonder if I'm just missing the boat on cruises?

Molly, my wife and I took an Un-Cruise in September in Alaska...75 guests and 23 crew members. We did kayaking and took skiffs to shore to hike...saw Grizzly bears, black bears, seals, eagles, whales...the ship was small enough to get close to the glaciers and get us into some beautiful bays. The company was InnerSea Discoveries...not cheap, but a trip of a lifetime. We even had a chef and a pastry chef to make our meals.
