Cruise recommendations for two female BFFs in their 30s?

My best friend of many, many years has had a rough year (cheated on, divorce, yadda yadda). We had been talking about going on a cruise for a while (originally with our husbands). Neither of us has ever been. I want to surprise her with cruise tickets for the two of us. Tragically, however, I am not rich, so we are limited in how fancy we can get.
We'd be leaving from Port Canaveral or possibly Fort Lauderdale. Any recommendations as to destination or cruise line?
Carnival is tempting because of the price but I've heard not so great things about it...
We like chilly chill relaxing things like fruity cocktails, pedicures and hot tubs. We also are into cultural stuff and would definitely be interested in exploring the ports we go to. We also like some measure of cheesiness like karaoke or midnight taco bars but we are definitely not looking for the full "spring break" experience, if you will. So tacky, yet tasteful, basically is what we're after. Oh and clean rooms, good food and no norovirus!
