Looking for small camera with low shutter lag and high zoom

Hi! I’ve looked through a lot of the posts to find a good pocket-size point and shoot camera that takes great pictures, is low on shutter lag speed and high on optical zoom, but most of what I’m seeing recommended are lower on the zoom scale. What camera do you recommend that meets all of these criteria? The last few years I’ve used Kodak EasyShare cameras, and I’m not too impressed with what I have. Going on a cruise in a few weeks and want to buy a good camera to take. Thanks.
