10 Night Eastern Mediterranean (Rome Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 18, 2011
Ship: Celebrity Equinox
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The Celebrity Equinox is a beautiful ship, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the sitting areas are great. What is not so great is that the average age of the passengers is 60+ so all of the entertainment is geared to a much older audience. The food in the dining rooms is very ordinary and quite disappointing compared to Princess or Carnival. If you are under 50 and want a fun trip then select a different cruise.

Highly recommend upgrading every night to the Tuscan Grill ($30 per person / meal option)

The shows were boring, and the theatre had a lot of obstructions or limited sight of the stage (not acceptable on a modern cruise ship). In addition there was an A Capella group, Full Tilt, who did the same boring routines over and over again, I enjoyed them the first time but would have gladly thrown them overboard by the end of the cruise (are Celebrity hard up for entertainers?). There was a great singer from the UK and a Hypnotist that did one night guest appearances, they were first class. Also there was a wonderful band from the Philippines but they kept moving them out of the Sky Lounge to the main lobby so you couldnt really enjoy them and party, a real shame.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
We paid for Concierge Service, but the reality was we got the same service as everyone else, never met a concierge, but we did receive a welcome onboard and introductory note from someone who claimed to be our Concierge, unfortunately this was on the final night of the cruise. Not impressed!

Cabin / Stateroom

Storage space in the balcony rooms was very limited. There is no place to put your suitcase other than taking up precious space in the wardrobe

Pros: A very niceship with an excellent Tuscan Grill

Cons: Food was very disappointing (unless you upgraded), entertainment is not good

Recommends Celebrity Equinox? No.
