January 2016 - 9 Night Ultimate Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Equinox
A great cruise!
We cruised with 2 other couples. We were greeted on ship with a glass of champagne-a nice touch. It was lunch time so we went to the buffet for lunch. We found a table without much trouble and enjoyed a leisurely meal while waiting for the third couple to arrive. The embarkation was so slow due to a different terminal than normal. We all got together for a drink and sail away. There was mix up in table assignments and it was remedied the next night. Food in the MDR was excellent so there was no need to eat at the specialty restaurants. Mixed Drinks and wine were more expensive that they were a few months ago. Pools were wonderful and we were always able to find a place to sit. Love the solarium. We did not like the production shows however, the music was not at all familiar and themes of the shows were very different. The guest performers were all good. Love Captain Leo. He was very visible and friendly. He is so funny-loved the Liars Club show and his talk on ship navigation as well as his daily announcements from above. Corning Glass show was amazing!!! Ports were St Thomas, St Maarten, St Kits and Martinique. Not impressed with Martinique-lots of work needs to be done there. I found the people to be friendly this is not what I had heard from my reading. All 6 of us had a really good time and are very pleased with the Equinox and Celebrity. We all would sail with them again!
