The Equinox is a well appointed ship with a great gym, but we sorely missed the Cellar Master wine lounge that we so enjoyed on the Equinox's sister ship, the Silhouette.  Cellar Master was a wonderful place to get a very good glass of wine in a quiet environment.  The perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink.  We also missed The Porch which was a lovely and quiet place to have breakfast. Again, The Porch was available on the the Silhouette, but not the Equinox.  Both Cellar Master and The Porch were replaced on the Equinox with areas we did not enjoy nearly as much.

Greece and Turkey were the highlights on this trip.  Due to current events, Celebrity chose not to make Istanbul a port of call, but opted to stay at sea.  I would rather be safe than sorry and appreciate Celebrity's caution.  Of course, I was sad not to visit Istanbul.

The food on the Equinox was typical cruise fare.  Nothing spectacular, but nothing to complain about.  The two other specialty dining restaurants failed to impress, but The Tuscan Grill was fantastic.  Undoubtedly some of the best steaks we've had.  We like it so much, we opted to eat there three times on this cruise.  The view from Tuscan Grill is spectacular!

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation took a long time as they were doing extra cleaning on the ship due to the Norovirus. All passengers embarked at the same so there were long lines. I am glad they took extra caution cleaning though.
Ship Quality
I missed Cellar Master and The Porch! On a positive note, everything was clean.
