Good value Child free Med Cruise ideas?

Never cruised before but would like to take my elderly ( but not decrepid) parents on a 7 day (approx )cruise spain/ italy /france/ greece etc

Does anyone have any reccomendations - would also consider a UK departure but longer cruise to avoid flights and overnighting etc.

Good food and entertainment along with nice cabins would be the key for us. Entertainment would be more the show style rather than some of the lecture/ monologue style that I have heard some of the cruises offer.

P&O Arcadia is an adults-only ship that has the style of entertainment you prefer.And her cabins are very smart especially the balcony cabins and suites.There were a lot of elderly couples on the one cruise we took which was a 10 days cruise from Southampton to the Canary Islands and Madeira.As you are new to cruising it is worth consulting a travel agent who specialises in cruising.

Jumble

why don't you try a cruise closer to home first such as some of those that depart from Fremantle and head north to Indonesia and back ?

Otherwise, a flight via Dubai with a connecting flight to Venice or Rome or Barcelona for departures from those cities where you'll find a myriad of itineraries.
