Our cruise on the Celebrity Equinox was sensational! The ship, the food, the entertainment, and the service was outstanding. Having two days out and two days back gave us some much needed relaxation time. The islands of St. Thomas, St. Martin, Dominica, and Barbados were breathtaking. St. Kitts was disappointing due to a bad excursion experience. Our 4x4 vechicle was uncomfortable, had a leaky roof, poor visual opportunities, and exhaust fumes constantly chocking us. The beach was poor also. Celebrity took note of our experience and will contact the proper people. My advice is if you are going to cruise, take the time to relax. Don't do 7 day cruises. It's too much trouble (flying) getting to the boat and then you have to leave in a few days. the only thing I would improve on this cruise is the music. It tended to be geared to people in their 70's and 80's. A mixture of current and old would be much more enjoyable.

The solarium pool is nice but is not deep. The outdoor pool is deep, but people don't swim much in it. The balcony is a must. Bring your own Rummikub game for the game room. They don't provide the game for you and everyone wanted to use ours. The crew did do extra drills for safety probably due to the Carnival fiasco. We felt much safer. You'll love the icey wash cloths offered when you return from your excursions. The martini bar has a chocolate martini to die for! The lobster in the main dining room was delicious. It was extremely sad to leave.
