Celebrity Equinox

January 2017 - Celebrity Equinox to Caribbean - Southern

Almost a cut above Royal and Princess

Great looking ship, very clean, shows just a little wear from new. The food was a little disappointing. Some meals were very good, others fair and a couple just bad. They served rack of lamb one night that was so tough it could not be cut with a sharp steak knife. They do not know how to prepare fish in the main dining room and i would recommend never ordering fish unless you are in the specialty restaurant. I will give their salad bar an A plus and some of the buffet items were good. Their breads were fresh and available in a nice assortment. I would also give their deserts are very good grade. I would give their basic coffee a c-, just not very good. Service was very good and the crew friendly, The entertainment was good and in some cases very good. On sea days it seemed that there was a shortage of chairs as guests would hog a chair all day even though they would hardly ever be there. The internet service is improved over a few years ago buy still seems behind 2017 standards. I would also suggest staying away from the casino unless you don't mind making an additional donation to the cruise line. All in all a great trip.

Royal Princess

January 2016 - Royal Princess to Caribbean - Eastern

Billion dollar ship-but a few minor complaints

Shower curtains on a billion dollar ship-really. Ship was beautiful but the main showroom was lacking-did not have a real showroom feel. The food was good but not outstanding-overall B- although there were some bright spots--Afredo's Italian Restaurant was excellent-as was the prime rib dinner. Steaks and other meats such as lamb chops were lower quality cuts and in some cases were as tough as shoe leather. The buffet on the 16th deck was adequate and you never had a problem finding a table, The entire crew were friendly and efficient.  The string quartet was excellent.

kritch45's Tips

Celebrity Equinox Celebrity Equinox - Celebrity is a touch better than the basic Royal or Princess. However destinations and timing would allow me to book a Royal or Princess is the timing were right. The Celebrity line is perhaps worth a small premium in price over the "lesser" lines.
Royal Princess Royal Princess - Just enjoy the ship-other than the pool on sea days you will never feel crowded. Check out the timing of your dinner time preference as there is not exactly any time dining. In some cases you needed reservations. If you travel as a couple I would advise sharing an 8 top table for dinner. You will me
