Cons - Buffet area was way too crowded for breakfast and lunch and it was hard to walk without bumping into people nearly everyday. Dining in Silhouette was also very crowded and dinner took a full 2 hours and staff seemed like it was struggling to keep up. Outside pool also extremely crowded. Also, 4 and 5 year old kids at the bars 11pm at night. And lastly, the cost for internet was really high, they were asking $28.00 just to buy 5 minutes of internet time to print out my plane tickets. Oh, and no towel animals. What the heck. Pros - Embarkation and debarkation were incredibly fast. Staff was very friendly. Service was Spectacular / Excellent overall and the staff worked really hard and deserve a lot of credit. Ship was also absolutely stunning - the furniture, the decor, the art gallery, everything was just so beautifully done. I had the standard balcony cabin on the 7th floor and it was also Amazing. Also noticed new changes this year - beach towels in cabin, new pillows, bath robes, and the mattress was so comfortable it was like sleeping on a cloud! We were also lucky in that we had nice weather, smooth seas, and the ocean breeze / Caribbean air at night was just perfect. In addition, the ship was incredibly clean - you saw a lot of staff cleaning / up-keeping the ship which was good. Our cabin was cleaned twice a day and our room attendant did an amazing job. The public bathrooms were also the cleanest I've ever seen in my entire life and I've been on a lot of cruises. Also, the hand towels in the public restrooms is a great idea. In addition, the entertainment was really excellent. Comedian Billy Garan and Jimmy Carol were a 10 out of 10. And the show "Topper" was great with the dancers in the artistic costumes and beautiful set design. The music throughout the ship was also good and there was LOTS of it - lots of musical shows in the theater, bands / singers at the pool and bars often and singers / band in the grand foyer every night and for the 4th of July party and the Great Gatsby party. There were also a lot more activities on the ship from when I went last year. Also,our cruise director Martin, was the BEST EVER - funny, entertaining, great party host, and he explained things very well. He was an A++ In addition, his dancing elevator scheme was very funny in how he caught passengers off guard in the elevator during the Great Gatsby party, and made them dance to get to their floor. The Food was u n b e l i e v a b l e. The quality and variety of food at the buffet was Astounding. Ribeye steak cooked to order one night. . as well as calamari, oxtail, chicken pot pie, and all kinds of fancy fish, pork, chicken and beef dishes. Many times the meat was so tender you could cut it with a spoon. Buffet desserts were also epic especially the german chocolate cake, the vanilla cannolis, and the butter cakes. And in the main dining room Silhouette, Superb new york sirloin steak, rack of lamb, shrimp scampi, creme brulee, strawberry cheesecake, and baked alaska. The mixed drinks were also made to perfection and the specialty coffee / espresso at Cafe Al Bacio was really good. Ports - ALL FABULOUS - Costa Maya was my favorite - took the short tram / taxi ride to Mahahaul beach which is the most beautiful beach I've ever been too - crystal clear warm water and no waves and palm trees that come right up to the water. Plus a great boardwalk with shops and cute cafes. However, did not like seeing all the homeless dogs not being cared for by locals and I had to buy them food / clean water for them. Wish I could have took them home with me. Read Less

I'll start this review as I have started all of my previous ones, with a bit of an introduction: My wife and I do 2-3 cruises a year, nearly all of them with Celebrity. We are 30 & 26 years old respectively, and have sailed the Caribbean a half-dozen times. I will be writing this with the target audience of "First Timers" and will hope to shed some light on what we enjoy, and don't enjoy about cruising with Celebrity, and on the beautiful Equinox. Why this cruise? My wife is a school teacher, so we take a 7 day cruise every year on her Spring Break. We don't have bitter winters here in Central Alabama, but the end of March is the perfect time to hop down into the beautiful weather that the Caribbean offers year-round. We started off cruising Carnival years ago, but ultimately made the jump to Celebrity as we wanted something more sophisticated and relaxing. We don't like to be charged for every single item on a cruise, so we love that Celebrity allows us to go for the "all inclusive" package. We book through a wonderful Travel Agent who only does cruises. We went on board with a drink package, prepaid tips (paid by TA), and $450 on board credit. With Celebrity, the OBC can be used to book excursions, specialty restaurants, on board shopping, or virtually anything else you buy on board. Frankly, its one of the main reasons we sail with Celebrity. All in all, we got a beautiful Concierge Class Balcony and all the perks for well under $3000 for the entire trip. We brought about $500 US in cash for port spending and tipping on board.We have found that, with all of the inclusions, its really hard to beat Celebrity on price. Add in the service and the wonderful food, and its a no-brainer for us. We also have been fortunate enough to have my parents join us for each of the last three spring break cruises. Its wonderful to be on any cruise ship, but even better when you can spend the time with family. My parents being older, do not want a "party cruise". Celebrity offers a wonderful atmosphere that allows everyone to have a great time but not at the expense of others. The Equinox: After having sailed on her twice, it comes as zero surprise that the Equinox wins "Best Overall" on CruiseCritic every year. Its a beautiful ship with a very user friendly layout. At 121k GT, it sits right in the happy medium of cruise ships in terms of size. There is plenty to do, plenty of room, and yet still small enough to be able to get comfortable with the entire ship over the course of 7 short days. Our two favorite areas of the ship are the sundeck and the main atrium. Both are absolutely stunning whether it is day or night. Decks 3-6 are where all the magic happens. Bars surround the atrium on all sides but they are presented in a way that is very classy and doesn't ever feel crowded. The four main bars that we frequent are all very different in design and styles, and they are spread out in a way that no place ever feels particularly crowded. The martini bar and the Gastropub are opposite each other from the atrium. One serves decadent martinis in dozens of flavors and all is served in a beautiful lounge and a solid ice bar top. The Gastropub has the feel of a rustic craft beer bar that has an awesome selection of beers from around the world. This bar has ESPN running on TVs so it was crowded while the NCAA basketball tournament was going. The World Class bar is a really cool bar near the art gallery and shops. This bar has two "mixologist" that are expert beverage makers. I go here to experiment and try new drinks that I may not have tried otherwise. This requires the premium drink package, but you can literally tell them you like whisky, citrus, and sweet drinks and they will come up with something you've never tried before. Its a wonderful place to hang out before dinner or after shows, especially if your wife enjoys shopping as much as mine does! This last bar is my personal favorite: The Sunset Bar. Its an outdoor bar that is open from morning til late at night. It is at the top of the boat and at the aft, so the breeze and views are breathtaking. The Equinox, like all Solstice class ships, are covered in real grass on the aft 1/3 of the top deck. Its something extremely unique about Celebrity and its really neat to be in the middle of the ocean and have grass between your toes. All in all, its a wonderfully balanced ship. Its large enough for there to be plenty of options in how you spend your days, but small enough to still feel intimate. Captain Kate Mccue: Oh Captain, My Captain! I'll admit I was a skeptic at first. Not that I thought she was a bad Captain, but I didn't believe a Captain could have a significant impact on a cruise vacation. Most Captains that I have sailed with are only worried about doing their jobs, getting us to and from our destinations safely, and they allow the entertainers and the service staff to provide us a good time. And while that is completely fine, Captain Kate is amazing! Her personality infects the entire ship and everyone stops what they are doing when she speaks over the PA. She is an awesome Captain, and every single bit as good as she is advertised. I cannot say enough how impressed I am with her, other than it would be a mistake for Celebrity to ever let her go! Stateroom: Concierge Cabin (C2) Room 1249. The stateroom is the same as any veranda on the ship outside of Suites, but this cabin does offer a unique feature that only a few cabins on the entire ship offer... a larger balcony. The Equinox has a few "bump outs" or "humps" in her design that cause a few of the cabins on each floor "bulge" out a few feet. At the angles of these "bumps" you get a slanted balcony. From the nearest corner, it is no smaller than any other balcony on the ship, but at its widest, its nearly twice as long. Our deck chairs came with ottomans and the chairs reclined enough that we effectively had loungers on our balconies. We didn't get quite the breeze off the balcony due to where we were, but the extra balcony space will be missed on the cruises that we dont have it. Room layout is spacious enough for a cruise cabin, our bed was near the balcony compared to others that are near the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom, its about average in size if you are used to balcony rooms. The shower has simple but elegant sliding glass door that doesn't waste any space. In concierge class we had access to slightly better bathroom toiletries and cosmetics. My wife didn't seem particularly impressed with the shampoo, but there could have been other factors that led to that. Dining: In this section is where we found the best and worst that our particular vacation had to offer. We went into this cruise knowing we would be doing a night or two in specialty dining, specifically Murano. I'll dive into the specialty restaurants in a bit, but lets get the not-so-pleasant out of the way. Please understand that we have never had an issue in the Main Dining Room. Celebrity does dining very well, and I'd even argue that it is one of their strengths. This time, we just weren't impressed. My wife, myself, and my parents got sat at a very nice four top. The MDR is crowded as it is on all ships, so that didn't bother us. We had a very nice and attentive head waiter, and the food both nights that we dined there was excellent. The bar/drink service however, was severely lacking. My father and I managed to get our wine quickly enough usually, but my wife and mother waited 15-30 minutes for their bar drinks every time they ordered. It became such an issue that our poor head waiter would go off running to get the drinks himself. This isn't a major issue, I am aware of that, but I expect more from Celebrity. After two identical services with the identical problems we called our Concierge (perk of concierge class) and told her about the issue and she asked if she could inform the Maitre'D. Literally 5 minutes later the Maitre'D had ran up to our rooms to apologize, hear our feedback, and promised to improve the service going forward. People, this is what makes Celebrity different. There are 3000 people eating dinner in his beautiful dining room, and he stopped mid-service to run up to our room to personally apologize and ask how to fix it. The next day we got back from a day at port and my parents and I each had a bottle of nice champagne from the Maitre'D, it was a wonderful gesture and we were impressed. Now as it turned out, we had a reservation at the famous Murano that evening. When we left Murano we were so blown away that we called our Concierge and asked her to book us in specialty dining for the remainder of the cruise. These restaurants are not free, nor cheap, but our concierge got us 20-40% off the listed price each night we dined in a specialty restaurant. So, in the end we never got to go back in the MDR, but I am convinced that the issues would have been fixed. Murano If you do one thing on a Celebrity Cruise, eat dinner at Murano. The first night of the cruise they offer it at a discount if you book ahead of time. My father and I are "foodies" and love fine dining. We both agreed that the Murano dinner service and quality of food is an experience that would be incredible even if it weren't on a cruise ship. Every single aspect, from the bread to the Grand Marnier Souffle is perfect. Lobster Murano is a top 5 dish that I have ever experiences and is cooked table side with everything from bacon, to lobster cooked in a cognac mustard creme sauce. We were so impressed that we booked it for every remaining night of the cruise that we could. One night they were fully booked, so we tried Tuscan Grille. It was very good, but with it being a for-fee Italian steakhouse, we left miserably full compared to the lighter and more elegant Murano. Entertainment & Activities This will be rather short as we did not attend any of the main productions in the theater. Celebrity keeps the same shows for 3-5 years before cycling them out, with us sailing on the Equinox as frequently as we do, there weren't any that we hadn't already seen. We did however attend the comedy shows and watch a lot of live music. The comedian was great and the house band was excellent as well. Celebrity offers other activities like bingo, concerts, seminars, and workshops that many find to be fantastic. Admittedly we mainly go find somewhere quiet near a bar, as we are both young and always seem to be around crowds on land, we enjoy a more laid back experience on the boat. Service With the exception of the MDR, which I consider a fluke rather than a flaw, service is impeccable on Celebrity. Tipping is a hot topic on any cruise forum, but I can definitively say that when I hand a bartender or my room steward a $10/$20 bill on the first day, they take care of my wife and I the rest of the voyage. I personally try to find a specific bartender in my most regular bars and tip heavy on days 1/2. I tip $1 a drink the remainder of the time and I am having another drink brought to me before the first one is finished. Celebrity has a wonderful staff and an underappreciated staff/guest ratio. I think the reason they named it "Celebrity Cruises" is because of how they want each and every guest to feel. It really is what makes them so special. Cafe Al Bacio: I couldn't figure out the best place to include this place in any of my previous sections, so I ultimately decided that it needed its own. Bacio is arguably the most loved place on the ship. They are a full service coffee & dessert bar that is open all day. In the morning people are getting their day started with anything from a cappuccino to a cup of decaf, and late at night every table is full with people winding down in the low light setting of an old city jazz bar. The live music from the atrium fills the bar and its just a super unique place to relax and enjoy yourselves. It sounds so simple and quaint, but I am amazed that every cruise ship in the world doesn't mimic this place into their own. Ports & Excursions: We loved every port we stopped at. We are very familiar with the Western Caribbean so only Key West was a first time port for us. Everyone has different interests at respective ports, so I will just tell you what we do every time and you look for more information if you wish. Key West: We wandered on our own, Key West isnt a large town and most of the cool stuff is near the ship. There are tours galore and a really neat aquarium nearby. Grab you a piece of Key Lime Pie and a Conch Fritter and enjoy your first stop of the cruise! Grand Cayman: 7 Mile Beach at Calico Jacks. You go to this beach for the water as it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. CJ's is great, but very crowded. Costa Maya: New favorite port in the Western Caribbean. The port itself is a maze, but very very beautiful. We find our way out and go to Maya Chan Beach Resort every chance we get. Check it out, its the epitome of a relaxing beach day. Cozumel: I have an answer to the famous Sancho's vs Nochi debate... Sancho's is the best! All inclusive, wonderful service, and a beautiful (safe) beach. We go every time we are in Cozumel and have no plans of changing! In Conclusion: My wife and I fell in love with cruising on our honeymoon and have been blessed to go one more than most our age. Celebrity is a perfect fit for what we want to do and how we want to spend our time on the boat. Its generally an older crowd, but we cruise like "older people". We have 2 more cruises currently booked with Celebrity, and 81 days cannot get here soon enough! Read Less

This is more a query than a review - although suffice it to say that we had a wonderful cruise in every way and cannot wait to try the other ships/cruises by Celebrity. We booked Concierge with drinks package included. The entertainment, stateroom, food, service and cleanliness were outstanding - as were the staff. We had Captain Kate who was wonderful and never too busy to have a friendly chat with anyone who approached her. We only pre-booked one shore excursion in Puerto Rico which was very well organised and the tour guide was a mine of information. On other ports of call we did out own thing and found there were always excursions on offer outside of the port. Whilst on board, I was fortunate to win a Blue Chip Voucher for a five day cruise (a $10 bet on a spin the wheel in the casino). This has to be used by May 2019 . Has anyone else won and used one of these vouchers. Blue Chip have said that there is a face value of approx. £500. if used towards a longer cruise. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I selected this particular sailing for my husband and myself based on aft cabin availability, pricing and time of year. We had a very early flight the first day and arrived at the terminal right before they let everyone in. We were processed very quickly and only had to wait about 30 minute before boarding the ship. We were in our cabin by 2:00 pm and had time to unpack and settle in before the muster drill. The muster drill was run efficiently and left us time to get on deck to watch the sail away. The ship was easy to navigate and I found things easily (except for my room since I insisted on turning right instead of left in the hallway leading to the back of the ship almost every time I returned to my room - definitely my issue and not the ship layout. The ship is very pretty and we never felt it was crowded or that we had to wait for anything, i.e. dining room seating, leaving the theater following a show, getting a drink at any of the bars, etc. The ship is immaculate and the staff is amazing. The food in the Cafe buffet was always good with a wide variety of options to choose from. The main dining room provided several different selections each day - some we liked and some we did not - but we did not starve one single day or meal all week. Our wait staff, Terence and Bonilla were fantastic! We chose to eat at the Tuscan one evening when they offered 30% off of the regular $45 price per person. The menu is great with lots of choices and you can order anything and/or everything off the menu for that price. They did have two specialty steaks for an additional cost so my husband ordered the 22 ounce porterhouse for an additional $18, but he ended up sending it back to the kitchen. It was a horrible looking steak and was truly not edible - we found it surprising that the kitchen would even send it out, but they replaced it with a melt-in-your-mouth 9 ounce filet mignon and it was incredible. The desserts were amazing and we each ended up trying 2 different ones and sharing. Had we gone again for this special I would have ordered one of each category and shared each item with my husband. We always book an aft balcony and we loved our cabin - 7364 - and our room steward, Jayson. He was so pleasant and attentive and we found no fault with our room at all. On a side note - i found on day 5 that our balcony chairs reclined, so i reclined my chair and layed back to enjoy the sun. I raised my leg up to scratch an itchy ankle and the chair flipped backwards so that my head ended up down on the decking and my legs were in the air. I did hit my heat on the side of the ship but not hard. Fortunately, my husband was there to try and get me upright. I ended up having to roll out of the chair sideways and twisted my left knee in the process. I did report the incidence to guest services so they would know there was an issue with the chairs tipping. My husband was very concerned that I had hit my head against the steel, so I was fortunate that I was not seriously hurt. Another issue I encountered that same day was that they were taking the deck chairs and tables into their work area to re-varnish the arms of the chairs and the table tops, along with polishing the tops of the table by the sofa. Around the same time they were vacuuming the ducts in each cabin with a large shop vac, which was stirring up dust in the cabin. The combined smell from the varnish, polish and dust set off my asthma and I had two asthma attacks. I went to guest services to report my health issue and ask how long they would be doing this maintenance work. The agent called the supervisor and I was told the work would stop immediately, but when I returned to my room later that day they were still doing both projects and continued them the following day too. The shops on the ship carried the same item types as any other ship we have been on, along with the same hallway table sales, but did not have any shop raffles all week. The bingo games were held every day we were at sea (including the day we were going to Puerto Rico as they don't consider this a port day??, but it was not cheap to play and the prizes were decent but not that impressive. there was a raffle on the last day but only one prize was raffled off, which angered several people who had invested in bingo all week. The entertainment was great for the most part. Kevin Spacy is the ship's cruise director and he was very entertaining and also very visible throughout the day - and very approachable. He has a great video on YouTube showing his compilation of various dance moves he has witnessed by ship guests throughout the years. The ship's entertainers performed 3 shows all week, which is less than what we are used to from other cruises. The cast is very talented but we - once again - found some of the singing so loud that it was hard to understand what they were singing. All 3 performances were colorful and included acrobatics that were well orchestrated and pleased those in attendance, but the stories themselves were puzzling to my husband and me and we just did not get them. The entertainers they brought on board the in between nights were all great - those we really enjoyed. On Wednesday night/Thursday morning I woke to loud talking and realized it was coming from the balcony above my cabin. My door was locked closed so it was tightly closed, but when I went out onto my balcony to check out the source I found that there were 3 younger guys standing on their balcony above mine have a very loud conversation at 4:00 am. I returned to my bed and waited another 20 minutes but they continued their loud conversation outside their cabin, so I then returned to my balcony and asked them nicely to please take it inside, which they did. The ports were all ones we has been to previously, so we chose to skip tours in San Juan and Saint Martin, but did a train ride in Saint Kitts. For our visit to San Juan, I called Celebrity three times asking if we were docking at the Pan American pier (which is located near a small airport and an industrial area and requires a cab to get anywhere) or the pier at old San Juan. I was told each time that we were docking at the Pan American pier - we ended up docking at old San Juan !?! We got off the ship and walked through some pretty shabby areas to get to the actual upscale shops recommended by the ship - very disappointing. The highlight was finding a shop on a side street called The Butterfly People - very high end pictured using beautiful butterflies that had naturally run their life cycle. Otherwise, there was nothing within walking distance of the pier that I would want to revisit. We did not do a tour on Saint Martin, but did get off the ship and paid to take the water taxi to the main shopping area ($7.00/pp for all day pass) so that I could buy some good vanilla from a local shop - only to find the shop was closed for renovations, which was not noted on their website. We returned to the ship with no vanilla On Saint Kitts we took a very fast bus ride to the train over some pretty bumpy roads. The train ride was close and relaxing, but could have been done in less than two and a half hours as the terrain did not change all that much - in a couple of areas the housing was improved from shacks, but the island is still very humble and their is not a lot of wealth among the population. I gave the shore excursions a lower rating just because we are seasoned cruisers and always find the shore excursions to be very costly and often disappointing. Overall, I would highly recommend this ship. Read Less

I loved the MARTINI BAR & the overall look of the ship. The shows were A! & in great taste. Would I sail again on her?? YOU BET I WOULD., The cabin stewart was A-1 as was all the people whow served us . I cannot sat enough about the people who took care of or vacation needs, They went above & beyond what was called for them & always with a smile.. If I was asked to say what I thought of the ship & crew I would have to give them a A+ with a few more +s. I have been on over 55 cruises & have both good & bad but I will rate this cruise as A+++++++++++++++++. Read Less

We thoroughly enjoyed our first cruise experience, overall being excellent and we had a fantastic 25th Wedding anniversary. All the staff and crew were great and were always full of smiles and created a wonderful atmosphere and the ship was extremely well maintained and clean (even to my wife's ocd expectations on cleanliness and hygiene). The staff in Blu were exceptional, in particular of those who served us, Rey, Kayna and Victor who were outstanding - it was our 25th wedding anniversary and we were treated like royalty, nothing was ever too much trouble for them, there only wish was to please us. Our stateroom attendant Danisha was extremely attentive and performed well above expectations. As first time cruisers we took a lot of time in preparation, using the internet and the Cruise Critic roll call to gain information on the best type of cruise to suit us based on age range, dining, entertainment and destinations and value for money. In most areas this cruise met those needs, only failing in a few areas: Details of facilities in state room - only one Euro power point. No kettle in room. Very expensive to get clothes ironed after a long journey to ship. Limited channels and information on TV in Room Late night entertainment not based on age/taste of people that were attending - advertised as top 40 but was actually playing loud Latino music. As it was not well attended it would have been better in Quasar rather than the Sky lounge. Overall the dining/bar experience was exceptional but entertainment could be improved upon. It was disappointing that Istanbul was cancelled as point of embarkation but understandable given the safety concerns. The port change from La Spezia to Livorno was a great disappointment as we would have liked to have visited Cinque Terre. For anyone not too interested in port excursions (hard sell by Celebrity- best to book independently as we did) the facilities on port days were restricted - breakfast in Blu finished early rather than later - we would have liked a lie in after a late night. Too many luxury shops and not enough basics - the products offered on sale were poor value for money - what was the point of having an art auction every day? The Spa prices were ridiculously high - my wife booked an appointment, the time was not made clear and was charged $80 for 15 minutes of seriously bad hair styling (damaging her hair - hot hair dryer on dry hair with no products) - we did however receive a full refund after complaining to the manager.

Having been on a cruise for the first time my impression of the trip from Rome to Barcelona was very good. I thought that to have to pay for water and soft drinks on a cruise ship is over the top as was the price to purchase them and the activities on board were limited other than that there was a lot of great advantages. The staff on board were great and very friendly and the ship was extremely clean. The restaurants were amazing especially the silhouette restaurant management staff of Alexios and Gilmon were fantastic their service was of the highest quality and when we went to the restaurant we asked for that table 436 every chance we could to be greeted and serviced by these amazing gentlemen. it was a pleasure being served by such a wonderful and helpful couple of men who have great pride in what they do and it showed in the way they delivered the food and the selections and information they advised us made going to the restaurant special.

Having travelled with Celebrity X during 2015 we were keen to do so again in 2016 to celebrate an 80th birthday and a wedding anniversary. Having checked out the Equinox for July found that there was a gourmet cruise on 2 July which sounded just wonderful. Michenlin Star chef Josh Eggleton from Bristol was on board to host a tasting menu on one evening and on shore in Italy Chef Gennaro Esposito (another Michelin Star chef) hosted a tasting lunch in his restaurant on the Amalfi coast. Both these events came with appropriate wines and were absolutely superb. I should emphasise however, that the standard of the chefs employed by Celebrity X is first class anyway so my comments on the Michelin Star chefs in no way demeans those on board the ship and the quality of all the meals served. The week was over too soon, but we shall be back for more! Read Less
