Can you give me some advice about a Mediterranean cruise this spring?

My parents (in their 60s) and my brother and I (both in our 30s) are planning to take a Mediterranean cruise this spring. However, that's as far as we've gotten in the planning! I'd love some advice, especially from people who have done this before.

We'd like to go for about a week, and we're open to both the eastern and western Mediterranean. We're more interested in the time on land than in the time on the ship, though it would be nice if the ship felt clean and comfortable. We're not big "activities" people, so we don't need organized shuffleboard or whatever. We don't want to have to dress up for dinner (at least not all of the time).
In terms of what we'd like to see on land -- beautiful scenery, interesting architecture, cool museums, good food. We don't have to hit the big cities, but are definitely up for visiting must-see sights.
I know this is very vague, but I'd love any thoughts about itineraries, cities we should definitely see (or definitely skip), or cruise lines. Anything else we should be keeping in mind? Thanks in advance!
