Celebrity Equinox Mediterranean

Sail Date: July 18, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Equinox is a beautiful place to spend a few days. It really became home. The crew was amazing in its friendliness and attention to detail. They were very good for the most part at greeting you and we enjoyed getting to know them. There were so many spots outside and inside for just relaxing. The lawn club was very unique and was a hit with many people. the different places to gather on each deck and the venues to hear music was outstanding. the food was good although not outstanding. certainly didn't lack for selection. we would highly encourage others to sail on one of the Solstice class ships.

Pros: The amount of detail in space usage on the ship

Cons: too much nickel and dime costs for food and internet

Recommends Celebrity Equinox? Yes!

Entertainment
Entertainment was good, although I didn't care for the big show stuff. prefer small settings with more relaxing entertainment.
Ship Quality
The layout of the ship was wonderful and easy to navigate. the ship was immaculate and rarely did you see debris or trash. It was decorated beautifully and gave you such a sense of being a comfortable resort.
Food and Dining
Food was great although sometimes the taste was not there in some of the soups. we never went to the specialty restaurants as we didn't feel like we wanted to pay more for eating than we already had when we purchased the cruise.
Cabin / Stateroom
More room than we expected and the Veranda was a place we enjoyed each day/evening. great place to eat/read/relax.
Service and Staff
top notch and friendly and engaging
Istanbul, Turkey
Istanbul was ok, probably wouldn't go back.
Mykonos, Greece
Great great island and beautiful. we liked it more than Santorini. Rented a four wheeler and covered half the island. found a beautiful beach, Ormos, and had lunch on the sand
Santorini, Greece
Oai is a must see and taking the time to walk around the city/shops. simply a very nice island
Don't Miss: Oai
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
what can you say about the history there? certainly worth the walking
Don't Miss: Ancient Athens
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
we were blessed to have our own guide and he was very knowledgeable, but also brought us to a place where in the end they tried to sell us turkish rugs which we have no interest in buying. Ask ahead of a private guide, just exactly where will you take us. Being Christian we were moved by the history of Epheseus.
Don't Miss: Epheseus
Salerno (Naples), Italy
Wished we would have stopped here longer rather than spending two nights in Istanbul. the Amalfi coast is awesome and it would have been great to explore some of the towns along the coast. Pompeii was incredible and worth a few hours.
Don't Miss: Amalfi coast
