  3. Celebrity Equinox
Celebrity lost a star in the review for the very painful embarking we experienced. 1.5 hours standing in line is not a great start to a wonderful vacation. Luckily, Captain Kate and the staff of the Equinox more than made up for the unpleasant start. Our dining group (Baron, Angela, Resa and Charm) were the best we’ve ever had on a cruise! Our favorites were the escargot, beef wellington, prime rib and the lobster ravioli. For the first time on a cruise, we even enjoyed the buffet for breakfast and lunch. The MDR had fake hash browns at breakfast, not so the buffet. The Caesar salad at the buffet was very good. There were so many good choices. Our room (8124) was within sight of the Bridge. I loved being on our balcony and watching Captain Kate and crew preparing for departure from the various islands. We could have used 1or 2 more drawers, but found our room very quiet and comfortable. We slept wonderfully on this cruise. We did a mix of ship excursions and some we scheduled on our own. One thing I learned though, if you have any health issues that make walking a challenge; booking through Celebrity will make getting on the tour a bit easier. We found that the tours outside of the ship booking don’t always pick you up right at the dock. There was one tour that from our room to their location was a 1.6 mile walking in the heat. If I had known that, I probably would have picked something different. I learned that when I book myself, I need to find out those details. We really enjoyed the entertainment and had a great time with the Cruiseguys2009 slot pull to start our cruise. Thanks to the hard work of all those people working on the Equinox, we had a great vacation.

The Staff of the Equinox is 5 Stars

Cabin Review

Deluxe Veranda
Cabin 1B 8124
Very comfortable and quiet. We slept wonderfully. If we had booked earlier and had a choice, I would have preferred more mid ship and a bit closer to the elevators, but other than that, we were quite satisfied.
