Review summary

We have cruised 4 different Cruise Lines before we booked Celebrity. This experience was Above and Beyond any of the previous lines and we started looking for future Celebrity Cruises while on board. We will use only Celebrity and Royal moving forward - and in fact we loved this ship so much we are wanting to cruise Equinox again. Captain Taso's is the most awesome Captain, accessible and so funny. Great Ship, Great Cruise Line, Great Captain, Great Experience!

Service and Staff

Captain Taso's was the funniest and most accessible Captain ever. Our cruise director was everywhere and top notch service from everyone.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Excellence from top to bottom

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Great Room but next time would get a room with the bed closer to the Balcony for slightly better accessibility to closet.

Ship tip

Just quite simply do it - already looking to rebook another Equinox Cruise which we have never re-booked a ship before but this was so perfect we are.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

4 out of 5
It's just a normal Florida City but the Port check in and check out was the best ever

San Juan, Puerto Rico

4 out of 5
Went to the Fort and walked Old San Juan

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

4 out of 5
Had to take a cab to virtually anything and enjoyed Magens Bay but was just okay

Samana, Dominican Republic

5 out of 5
I was not looking forward to this Port but found the most awesome Beach and this was actually my favorite Port. Go to La Playita - not crowded serene and beautiful

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Went to Paradise Beach area waves were high but had a nice afternoon. I would have chosen the Atlantis excursion if I had to do over though. Nassau is not my favorite Port.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
THE BEST EVER! We carried our bags off so was first off ship and facial recognition allowed us to virtually never break pace walking and no lines for Customs. Amazed at the awesome process!
