I have been on 21 day cruises and still am not ready to have it end. I guess I'm happy being on a cruise, visiting all the ports, reading, relaxing, watching the water and joining in on shipboard activities if I want.
The food on most ships is comparable to very good banquet food and occasionally a little better and sometimes a little worse. The chocolate buffets are terrific.
After 19 cruises I still get excited planning and getting ready to go. This is an especially good year for me . Have a cruise in April to the Western Caribbean and another in Sept. to New England/Canada.

Your Highness, Perhaps you could have some peers dust off the Britania just to see if you like crusing. :<)

Assuming you are a real person and really do want answers: here would be my suggestion: try a 5 day cruise or 7. I do not think a 3 or 4 can give you a real feeling about cruising and anything longer than 7 days may be a bore if this ends up not being your cup of tea. Pardon the pun!!1 As for the food, it depends on what you are expecting. Most of the meals are good to very good and some outstanding, again depending on the cruise line you choose and what you consider good. One thing for certain; there is plenty of it. As for what to do on the varies islands, just look under ports a call to get ideas.

You know I am not sure if you are for real, but anyway, regardless these are my suggestions.

Iam a real person first of all, descending from the Merrieur Family. If you look, up the moreau family you will see where i come in the line

Mackenzie-Alexandre Richard Robert Mckee Moreau Jr. Viscount of Lion

If you look up Mckee, that family were lords in ireland. That is my grandfather's name, he was a Lord Mayor in ireland and a Lord Chancellor, of the house of lords

Look me up and you should be able to see

I would recommend a 7 night cruise. the first day is usually lost in unpacking and familiarizing yourself with the ship. As to what to do besides ports, most ships have a casino, movie theater, library, game room, art auctions, fashion shows, passenger games, Live shows every evening in the main showroom as well as live entertainment in various lounges, an internet room, pre-docking lectures on the ports you will visit, and best of all, lots of interesting people to meet. I am someone who gets bored very easily but I find a 7 night cruise is fine. That's mainly because I've been to the caribbean so many times. If I were to go to Europe I'm sure that two weeks would keep me entertained. I find the southern caribbean has the best and most interesting ports, but there's enough to do in almost all of them. You can also ask the captain for a visit to the "steering room" .I think you will enjoy it more than you expect.
