Great time!

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This is a great ship. Easy to navigate\, plenty of room and you do not feel crowded since there are so many seating areas. Everything was great. The crew were very polite and worked well with guests. Food was wonderful. Great selection in the main dining room as well as Oceanview cafe. Room service was great too. We did not see the need for special dining choices. We did a back to back cruise so it was extra nice. The only problem was in disembarkation and change around on the first trip. It seems that Customs officers are at a premium now and that made a royal mess out of everything. Passengers were backed up for hours. This is not a cruise line issue however some passengers did not understand that. We lived through it.

Pros: The ship and crew were wonderful.

Cons: Some of the ports were not so nice.

Recommends Celebrity Equinox? Yes!

Ship Quality
Everything from the gangway to the public restrooms were clean as could be.
Food and Dining
Great choices\, nice atmosphere and more than friendly service. The matre d\, Joseph was an excellent communicator and problems with seating and passengers wishes were quickly and respectfully dealt with. The cafe had great choices also.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean and comfortable everytime.
Service and Staff
Crew were great\, friendly and willing to please. The Captain was very informative but needs to let loose and have some fun with his information delivery.
Some shows were better than others. The circus show was excellent. Singer\, juggler\, comedian\, ok. Party band was great and kept the crowd going. They had a great following.
Children's Programs
Did not use but the kids seemed to like the programs.
