January 2016 - Celebrity Equinox to Caribbean
The ship was beautiful and the crew was one of the most friendly crews we've experienced. That said there were some major disappointments.
The main dining room experience for quality of the food and service was significantly below standards. The specialty restaurants were good, but then again we were paying for this added experience.
The entertainment was disappointing. The production shows, though colorful and with significant skilled performers was not directed at the demographics of the ship. The headliners were better. I'd rate the entertainment portion of the cruise a C- to a D+.
Boarding the ship was the absolute worst experience we've encountered and we have well over 25 cruises. Long lines, no direction for Elite guests. There was no accommodation for the Elite status until we had waited in line for well over an hour and half. Absolutely miserable experience!! This alone will ensure we never - ever sail on Celebrity again.
