March 2016 - 11 Night Ultimate Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Equinox
This was our first 11-day cruise... we'd always been limited by time-off-from-school before so the longest we'd been away was 7 or 8 days. We found the added time to be utterly delightful. We engaged in some of the available excursions, but not one every day. The pace suited us just fine.
The Equinox is a beautiful ship. Like any cruise vessel, it took a couple of days to get acclimated to the arrangement of facilities, but once settled in, we greatly enjoyed the public spaces... there are numerous small sitting areas (and bars) to relax in and enjoy.
