Celebrity or Regent European Cruise

Jump to last reply

As a gift for my mother's 70th Birthday, we are sending her and my dad on a European cruise (They are Irish). We have whittled it down to 2 cruises. Celebrity Equinox 10 days Western Mediterranean and Regent Navigator Venice to Barcelona 10 days.
They have never cruised before so they have nothing to compare to. My mother enjoys the finer things in life (spacious cabin, fine dining, personal service, fine wines etc.) and for this reason I am veering towards Regent. My dad would enjoy the on board entertainment and chatting to other passengers. Regent is quite a bit more expensive and I am wondering if it is worth it. I am afraid that I may be making an assumption that because Regent is more expensive that it is better. Naturally I want them to have a lovely experience but only if it is worth paying the extra.Would you say that Regent is nicer in terms of decor and service? Is it stuffy at all? I was on a Celebrity cruise myself a number of years back and found it to be very nice but perhaps a little too commercial for my liking with upselling and photos etc.. Anyone any thoughts? Thanks in advance
