Review summary

THIS CRUISE ON CELEBRITY HAS PROVEN TO US THAT THEY DO LISTEN TO COMMENTS THAT ARE MADE ON THESE SURVEYS. I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO BOOK ON THE EQUINOX AGAIN IF THERE WAS THE SAME CREW ONBOARD.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
FAST AND EFFICIENT

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
SERVICE IN BOTH THE MAIN DINING ROOM AND THE OCEANVIEW BUFFET WERE EXCELLENT. WE HAVE CRUISED ON CELEBRITY 8 TIMES AND THIS WAS BY FAR THE BEST DINING EXPERIENCE WE HAVE HAD.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
FRESH WATER POOLS(NOT HEATED) NEW YEARS EVE POOLSIDE PARTY IS AN ANNUAL EVENT FOR US. CASINO HAS MANY CHOICES. 0 AND 0/00 ROULETTE TABLES AND LOTS OF SLOTS. COMEDY SHOWS WERE GOOD. CAPTAINS CLUB MEETS ALWAYS NICE

Entertainment

COMEDY SHOWS GOOD

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL IN EVERY AREA EXCEPT ONE, THE MAIN DINING ROOM COCKTAIL WAITRESS DID NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A LEMON AND A LIME, A TWIST FROM A SLICE OR WEDGE AND TRIED TO PUSH MORE EXPENSIVE COGNAC RATHER THEN WHAT I ORDERED. ROOM STEWARD WAS IN THE TOP 3 OF OUR 33 CRUISE EXPERIENCES. FOOD IN THE MAIN DINING ROOM WAS BETTER THEN IN THE PRIVATE BLU DINING ROOM WHICH WE HAVE EATEN IN WHEN STAYING IN AQUA CLASS.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
ALL AREAS SEEMED TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE. CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS WERE EVERYWHERE.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
MORE THEN ENOUGH ROOM FOR TWO. SAME SIZE AS A AQUA CLASS CABIN WITHOUT THE SPECIAL SHOWER AND LOTS LESS MONEY.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Key West, Florida

3 out of 5
AFTER 10 TIMES HERE YOU CAN ONLY TAKE SO MANY BARS AND T SHIRT SHOPS. IF IT IS YOUR FIRST VISIT TO KEY WEST, TAKE THE CONCH TRAIN TOUR AND SEE THE MAIN TOURIST SIGHTS.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

2 out of 5
THE MAIN PORT IS JUST LIKE ANY OTHER WESTERN CARIBBEAN PORT, T SHIRTS AND OTHER JUNK. KIDS T SHIRT ADVERTISED AS 4 FOR $20 TURNED OUT TO BE $10 EACH. EXACT T SHIRT IN GRAND CAYMAN WAS $5 EACH.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
ALWAYS SOMETHING TO DO HERE. LAST YEAR WE SWAM WITH THE MANATEES , THIS YEAR WE DID A JEEP JUNGLE AND BEACH TOUR BUT NOT FROM THE SHIP SHORE EXCURSION DESK DESK

George Town, Grand Cayman

4 out of 5
NOT ALOT TO DO HERE BUT SOME TOURS ARE OK. WE HAD AN UN SCHEDULED TOUR THAT WE DECIDED ON WHEN WE GOT OFF THE SHIP, $10 PER PERSON AND IT SHOWED ALOT OF THE ISLAND AND WE EVEN WENT TO HELL! REALLY, IT EVEN HAS IT'S OWN POST OFFICE. WE DID A FAR SIDE ISLAND AND BEACH TOUR WHICH WAS GOOD. WE LEARNED A LOT ABOUT THE ISLAND FROM ONE OF OUR DRIVER'S(ERNIE)THE TOUR IS FROM THE DOCK BY BUS TO A BOAT TO THE FAR SIDE, BACK TO A SMALL BUS TO A BEACH CLUB AND THEN BACK TO THE DOCK ACROSS THE STREET FROM OUR SHIP.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
FAST AND EASY
