Celebrity Equinox Cruise

Sail Date: March 27, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary by cruising to the Caribbean on Celebrity's "Equinox."  We visited St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Barbados, Dominica and St. Maarten.  The food in the main dining room was excellent, as was the buffet in the Oceanview Cafe, and we had no difficulty finding a table there.  As an Elite member, we were given many "perks", such as continental breakast in the Tuscan Lounge, invitations to many cocktail parties and cocktails with the officers, a backstage theater tour, a visit to the heliport from which the view of St. Maarten was spectacular, free Internet use and free laundry.  We particularly enjoyed DJ, Geo, who played ballroom dance music every evening for 45 minutes.  We.  also very much enjoyed the Celebrity orchestra when they played ballroom dance music one evening.  Being able to ballroom dance is one of the reasons we love to sail on Celebrity. Also, we enjoyed the "Burn It Off" exercise classes that were held on the deck.  We were disappointed that there is now a charge for zumba.  The shows were excellent, with the exception of one evening when the acoustics were so loud that we had to leave the theater.  All told, we had a wonderful time and couldn't have chosen a better cruise to celebrate our Golden wedding anniversary.
Ship Quality
The ship was beautiful and was easy to navigate.
Food and Dining
The food was excellent.
Service and Staff
Our cabin steward, Pedro, kept our stateroom immaculate. Rossy, the Captain's Club hostess, was very helpful and charming.
Entertainment
The shows were wonderful. The only one we didn't enjoy were the four tenors because the accoustics were too loud and we had to leave the theater.
Onboard Activities
We went to all the dance and exercise classes.
Destinations and Excursions
We enjoyed all the islands.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was roomy and had a full-size couch. There was plenty of storage space for our clothes and suitcases. The bathroom was roomy and had a nice shower and lots of space for our toiletry articles.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Go to Magen's Bay Beach and also shop for jewellery.
Basseterre, St. Kitts Stroll around
Bridgetown, Barbados Stroll around
Roseau, Dominica We went on a tour of the island and went to the beach.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten Went shopping.

Tip

We didn't have any problem finding a chaise and there were plenty of shady areas to sit . We swam in the AquaSpa pool, which was not very crowded, and we enjoyed the healthy food served in the AquaSpa cafe. The gym was well-equipped and we could always find a treadmill.
