Review SummaryThis was or first cruise and we are generally averse to large crowds so we had great apprehension. We were truly surprised at the attention given to small things. Very polite attendants for our staterooms who constantly kept us iniformed and with towels.. Pool butlers were always cleaning. Great concern and attention to keeping public bathrooms spotless. Not once did we ever enter to find a speck of dirt or paper. This is a remarkable feat considering the heavy use in certain areas of the ship. We moved around the upper dining room using the dine at your own time choice and the staff everywhere was experienced as they seemed to anticipate our every need. We found little quiet areas to hide out even on the observation deck and sky lounge
on the ship..
The specialty coffee bar became our favorite once again because of the staff, In particular we loved Ivana. We hope we get to see her again. This group could handle at least 50 people at a time with polish and professionalism and make us all feel so special. In the mornings we always hit the organic cafe by the pool for special smoothies. We paid for the premium non-alcoholic package for there of us and it was worth every penny. This was a graduation trip for our grandson and he was never bored. Many times he said it was OK to just stay on the ship.
Also noteworthy, none of us got seasick as the ship was so smooth in its sailing.
We had a veranda cabin and sat on it many times in the evening.
We particularly enjoyed the evening entertainment in the grand foyer while sipping our specialty teas. This was the height of luxury. If you don't ever leave the ship to go into the many ports, you will have the best vacation ever and be throrougly spoiled by the staff on the Celebrity Equinox.
We hope we can come close to this experience on our next cruise which we hope to take with our next graduate in May or June next year.

Recommend some type of video showing excursions available.
We were not up for strenuous and need more moderate excursions because of mobility issues. When we arrived at the ship unfortunately we were overwhelmed with everything and failed to look at the great number of other excursions offered by
