SURPRISING FOOD AND SERVICE by ikick1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

relaxing getaway by dim99504

We had a great time. The room was better than the rooms we've stayed in on Carnival and Royal Caribbean. The ticket prices were too cheap to pass up, so this was the second cruise we were on in 3 weeks. The music was also better than on the previous cruise.

Fun cruise by mermaid1025

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship arrived too late in Puerto Rico to do more than just see Old San Juan quickly. Nassau is a madhouse. Our waiter at dinner was superb, but there were waiters at the other meals who were disgruntled and unpleasant. The buffet had too many passengers doing unhealthy things. There should be more staff to serve the food.

Excellent. On board activities were great, as was the food and service for our nightly dinning experience. Cabins were a mite small. by norm1940

Celebrity is our favorite and this was the 3rd cruise on the Equinox. Everything was beyond expectation except for the Celebrity theater performers. They were just terrible. Captain and his staff were GREAT!

Great cruise by liz66

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Excellent food in the dining room. For those that like high end beers, the Equinox has better beer than most cruises. In our group, we enjoyed the food, the shows (for those that like musicals), the bars, the live music, the trivia and other games, the slots, and the excursions. We were 3 couples, ages 50s to 70s. There was something for everyone but probably not children.

very unnerving cruise by coldfootcruiser

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

There was an incident onboard that made us feel very threatened. It began with our 21 year old daughter being harassed by security while purchasing a drink at a bar onboard. Two security guards came up behind her, asking her age. They seemed angry and were intimidating. She said she was 21 and they demanded ID. She told them it was with the bartender. They waited there, then went to check with the bartender and then just as abruptly left without another word to her. It was Totally fine to politely check her ID, she does look young, but being that intimidating and abruptly leaving without another work (such as, you are fine, have a nice night), was not Ok with us. She and her older sister sat there for a while not knowing what to do. They are really sweet, polite girls and not partiers. It was our impression that the cruise line appreciated their over 21 year old guests politely enjoying their nice bars and spending money. The following morning, we complained at guest services about how it was handled and the representative typed up the complaint. Upon returning to our stateroom some 45 minutes later we found a threatening message on our door on a dry erase board that was not ours. It read, "I this is Gordon you guys can go kill yourselves." Gordon was our room attendant. After taking a picture, we handed the dry erase board with the message to another state room attendant that happened to be walking by and he said he would take it to his supervisor. (As a side note we never heard from the manager.) We wondered if this could be retaliation for filing a report about security's treatment of our daughter, given the timing and inside knowledge required to know the name of our state room attendant. It felt extra threatening given that it claimed to come from someone with access to our room. We went back down to guest services to report this and this time spoke to a member of the security team. He apologized for the way the security guards handled questioning our daughter at the bar the night before. We missed half of a scheduled, paid event reporting this incident and were not reimbursed. After looking into it we were called back down and told that it was 2 young adults that took the dry erase board from a door elsewhere on the ship and left the message on our door. He said they had been spoken to and told, that kind of thing could end their vacation very quickly. The security guard assured us it would not happen again. We were not told who they were. We asked their age and were told they were not under 18. I brought up the concerning question of how on earth they knew the name of our state room attendant? Were they in a very close by room? The security officer and the other woman from guest services present merely looked at each other and did not give an answer. They assured us we were safe and it would not happen again. We do not believe this is in any way the accurate accounting of who did this. We had not made enemies with anyone onboard. If it was another guest, a threat like this (from things I have read on many cruise forums I follow), would result in the offending parties being asked to leave the ship at the next port. This leaves the belief that it was either another crew member out to frame our cabin steward or some form of retaliation for complaining about the way security treated our daughter. We have Loved Celebrity in the past, which was why my husband and I paid to bring 6 members of our family on this cruise. This run in left us feeling very unsettled and even unsafe from the very people we should have been able to trust most. I reported this to Celebrity and thus far have heard nothing back.

Good value for the money. If you are looking for a clean ship, decent food and not a large drinking crowd that this is a great ship.

Easy to get on the ship with no waiting. Aqua class was wonderful and the access to Blu restaurant and the spa was terrific. The entertainment was very good each night. Captain Kate was all over the ship meeting everyone and talking.

Great ship - Fantastic Itinerary by JimEFL

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Equinox is a beautiful ship. During our cruise the senior staff were also very visible. The food and drinks were outstanding. The onboard singers and dancers were wonderful; the Equinox orchestra were fantastic. Some of the onboard entertainment was good some was not so good. We thought the itinerary was wonderful. We relaxed for two days and then enjoyed six consecutive ports that were interesting and safe. We then had two days to rest before returning to our busy lives.

Don’t have an accident! by vicarkatz

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Despite the high quality of wait service, food quality, and the excellence of my cabin and steward, I would not recommend Celebrity Cruises to anyone, due to their absolutely horrible medical staff and treatment. The fact that they have a gym open for service with no staff person to monitor is unacceptable and dangerous.

Great Cruise.....but by marfred2000

This cruise was a first for us in a long time...the ship was great, it wasn't oversized. The groups were basically adult + and that was enjoyable. The gym facilities were very good. I would have like to have known about the water cost before I sailed.
