9 Night Ultimate Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 02, 2016
Ship: Celebrity Equinox
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 1061
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The ship was beautiful and the crew was one of the most friendly crews we've experienced.  That said there were some major disappointments. 


The main dining room experience for quality of the food and service was significantly below standards.  The specialty  restaurants were good, but then again we were paying for this added experience.


The entertainment was disappointing.  The production shows, though colorful and with significant skilled performers was not directed at the demographics of the ship.  The headliners were better.  I'd rate the entertainment portion of the cruise a C- to a D+.


Boarding the ship was the absolute worst experience we've encountered and we have well over 25 cruises.  Long lines, no direction for Elite guests.  There was no accommodation for the Elite status until we had waited in line for well over an hour and half.  Absolutely miserable experience!!  This alone will ensure we never - ever sail on Celebrity again.

Good bathroom size. TV interaction was below standards, i.e. making reservations using the cabin TV

Ship Tip

This ship is for old folks. If you younger, pick a different cruise line and ship
