Don't let it get to you. My first suggestion would be to go to your local travel agent, sit down with him/her and tell them what you have told us. I can make some very, very general guideline suggestions. Celebrity - great service - very classy line. Holland-American - classy- tends to attract an "older crowd" Princess - my personal favorite - great service, good size cabins - all ages. Carnival- really good-midrange cruise line, tends to attract more families and younger crowd. Royal Caribbean - another really good line - lots to do on ships -especially the Voyager class ships.
