Celebrity Equinox

February 2015 - Celebrity Equinox to Caribbean - Southern

Norovirus hurts cruise experience

Because of virus, no one could serve themselves in the Oceanview café. This made for long lines and short tempers. You couldn't even get your own glass of ice water or coffee. The Luminae restaurant for Suite guests wasn't ready, so all those tables were put throughout rest of dining room making all tables close together, elbow to elbow so to speak..not a good experience. Ship should have dry docked for a week to complete the Luminae. Because of this, service and food was only mediocre. Specialty restaurants food was good but I thought overpriced for what you got. Drinks and wine overpriced. Cheap cruising is gone!!

Navigator of the Seas

February 2014 - Navigator of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Going out of Galveston

The port of Galveston is probably one of the worst ports in the US. There is always a chance of fog (which we had) that can screw up your trip royally. Also the terminal is way to small to handle 3500 people trying to embark on a ship. There are double doors for all these people to get through. It was not a pretty site. Once underway, the trip is fine. The ship is clean and the food is OK. We are seniors, Diamond Plus, and we think Royal Caribbean for the last few years has become a "family oriented" cruise line, which is fine. However as seniors we prefer less children, young parents bring infants and babies on a cruise which we wonder about. and now that even being Diamond Plus doesnt mean alot we feel its time to more on and up to Celebrity. For instance, they have done away with the discount books we used to get in the room when we would embark. Now those 60 pages of coupons have turned into around 20 discounts placed on the seacard which most staff dont know how to use the card for the discount. It was a joke. In the windjammer we could get our food and go into Chopes to eat in peace but now Chopes is reserved for Suite members only. I dont think even Pinnacles can get in now. They just seem to be taking more and more goodies away, worried about the bottom line. Hey, I am a stockholder in RCL, so profit is good, but be careful of taking too much away from people who cruise alot. It can jump up and bite you right in your corporate pocket book.

cruisenuts's Tips

Celebrity Equinox Celebrity Equinox - Actually was able to find a chaise in the Solarium when we wanted one.
Navigator of the Seas Navigator of the Seas - The Viking Crown lounge is now the Cosmopolitan Lounge and the nice music has been replaced with loud, DJ music sometimes. Not like it used to be. Again, catering to younger people and that's fine, but it is a change.
