This was a 12-day Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona to ports in France, Italy, Croatia, and Montenegro. A wonderful itinerary (though port intensive). We took a few days pre trip to stay in Barcelona and enjoy this thoroughly remarkable city.

The Celebrity Equinox is a very comfortable and entertaining ship. Due to the numerous ports of call and our late-dinner seating, we did not get to take advantage of everything the ship had to offer (mostly the entertainment in the theater). However, the entertainment in the lounges, at poolside, and in the main foyer was outstanding. Our balcony cabin was located forward on deck 10 and was quite comfortable. We did enjoy returning from an excursion and relaxing out on the balcony before dinner. Storage was quite adequate.

The staff throughout the ship were very friendly and helpful.

We did buy the Specialty restaurant 3-package. While we thoroughly enjoyed Murano and the the Asian Silk Harvest restaurant, Tuscan Grill was a little disappointing.

Nevertheless, the overall cruise experience was totally enjoyable. Dubrovnik and Kotor were extra surprise treats that are very unique and interesting. We did 3 exclusive excursions (Pompeii, Rome and Florence) In Rome and Florence the lunch that was provided was 'hotel' food and not of very good quality. Also I would book tickets for specific sights in advance and avoid the excursions if possible.

On the whole the ship was amazing and the staff was wonderful we would book celebrity again.
