Equinox cruise highlights

Sail Date: October 31, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Each ship we have sailed has been bigger than the one before. With Equinox, we have reached our limit. We will scale back to smaller ships even if price is higher. The on-board experience (Equinox is a great ship!) was nowhere as much fun as earlier cruises where we made many personal connections on board. We made ONE connection on this trip and that started on the transportation TO the ship :(

Pros: the ship, ports, food

Cons: the size of the ship; main restaurant service not up to prior Celebrity cruises; tipping tipping tipping!

Recommends Celebrity Equinox? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Simply the largest most sumptuous cabin we have ever had - cabin crew was gracious and efficient
Service and Staff
hard to criticize; only the size of the ship made it hard to "connect" sometimes
Food and Dining
Specialty restaurants - over the top!
Main dining room - mostly very good food except once; service was not what we had become used to
absolutely no complaints - love the grass and the glass show on the top deck
Ship Quality
it would be a '6' if not for the size. maybe I'm being too harsh; either a 4 or 5, but not 6 (too big, impersonal)
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
totally enjoyed the Turkish people; where we went; food; Ephesus ruins restoration was spectacular
Don't Miss: St. Mary's 'home' and Ephesus
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
First time here: Acropolis wonderful! Shopping and eating in Athens wonderful!
Don't Miss: Acropolis for first-timers
Santorini, Greece
very picturesque island - glad we had the chance
Don't Miss: shopping - great clothes
Naples, Italy
Sorrento is a wonderful town; Pompeii is a wonderful restoration; oh the food is great!
Don't Miss: Pompeii (it rained so glad we did not do famous Amalfi coast)
