  3. Celebrity Equinox
We had done this itinerary 4 years ago and enjoyed it so much we wanted to do it again. Ports: Being the second visit to the ports allowed us to be a bit more selective of what to see/do. For the majority of the ports we explored on our own and had a wonderful time. We also did one Celebrity Excursion and two privately booked excursions. The Celebrity excursion was great, but we liked the others because they had fewer people so we had a more intimate and custom experience. Would definitely look into excursions on sites such as Viator. Ship Info: The Equinox is a beautiful ship. We had Aqua Class staterooms and would definitely recommend this if your budget allows. The extra amenities in the room were OK, but we really didn't notice that. What we did like was the dining experience in Blu. The service and food were outstanding. We didn't have dinner anywhere else! Also liked the unlimited access to the Persian Gardens. Even the buffet (Oceanview Cafe) far exceeded expectations. The layout, with serving stations, was great as it prevented any long lines. The variety and quality of items was also amazing. You can't go wrong on Celebrity!

Fantastic Cruise - the ship, service and ports were amazing!

Cabin Review

AquaClass
Cabin A1 1605
This cabin is mid-ship at the "bump-out." We were next to the suites and very close to the elevators, but never heard anything due to a set of sliding doors between the elevator lobby and stateroom corridor. The cabin is a standard size, but the balcony is at least double the size of the standard.
