Looking at booking a cruise for November/December but I must book before March 31 to take advantage of the deals. The destination is South Pacific.

Here are the choices:

Regent, 18 days, $9,000 per person, all inclusive, drinks, tips, excursions, pre & post hotel, ground transport including return air. You paid the piper and that's it. The cost is for a Concierge suite (The lowest price cabin is a regular suite and is sold out, and cost $8,000).

Oceania, 18 days, $6,800 per person, all inclusive just like Regent, except no pre & post hotel but includes return air and ground transport. The cost is for a Concierge Level Veranda (not a suite)

Celebrity, 14 days, $3,500 per person, plus $1,600 air per person for a total of $5,100; but have to add drinks, tips, excursions to the cost making it very close to the cost of the Regent. The cost is for an Aqua class cabin.

I have read mixed reviews on cc re Regent, some say it is over rated; there are multiple complaints about food quality and availability (dining room hours not adjusted on shore days leaving room services as the only choice?)

Comments anyone? Which one would give you the best bang for your bucks?
