Great Cruise.....but by marfred2000

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

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.

Our best cruise experience ever by lynne0129

It's hard to think of anything that could be better on this ship. Ship's officers, staff, food, ship, ports and activities were all wonderful!

Best cruise by puschb

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Very impressed. Excellent food and service. Our waiters Mike and Miguel were outstanding. Older classier crowd. Not so crowded. We were able to enjoy the pools ( unlike other cruise ships ) The music was perfect. Will definitely cruise again with Celebrity. The only negative thing Celebrity needs to be a little more specific on allowance for carry on water and sodas. We were told at the port we could only take 12 total so our water and soda were split. We had called prior to boarding and were told " as long as you can carry in your hand " you can take. The rest of our drinks were already delivered to our stateroom so that was not really an issue but it should be a little clearer.

third time on the Equinox by keller4940

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

Third time on this ship and we noticed several cutbacks in quality and offerings. I love sailing and we have been spoiled because we have had a sky suite in the past. Since we were taking our daughter and her husband, we took a lesser cabin. The staff were very nice and helpful and after one bad experience in the main dining room, Duarte (waiter), Viviano (asst. waiter) and Belinda (sommelier) were perfect.

Fun Time in the Southern Caribbean by wjmoore67

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Did the Kukoo bus/beach in Aruba, it was fun, but not in the rain. Wanted to do the sunset catamaran in Aruba, but the weather cancelled it. Mini Jeep in Curacao is actually a side by side ATV - great fun. The rain didn't really bother us, but the tour went through an open land fill - bummer to see all the trash. The Beach in Bonaire was lots of fun.

We learned a lot on our first cruise by amylewk

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Having never been on a cruise before, so we learned a lot. If we ever cruise again, we know to schedule excursions at every port (or at least be better prepared) and to spend fewer days at sea.

A B C islands cruise by aroma

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Equinox is an older vessel but in good condition. The staff was outstanding. Very accommodating people and hard workers. The food was abundant and a big emphasis on alcohol consumption. The bands and evening entertainment were very good. But during the day there wasn’t much going on outside of the pool. I love to shop, but this ship had many more opportunities than necessary. Even the captain of the ship has her own line of jewelry to sell -that’s excessive! It seemed everyone was selling something. Not enough action for myself and my husband and we’re in our 70’s!! All in all we did enjoy meeting some interesting people and as mentioned before, the entire staff was wonderful.

exceeded expectations by svsandylee

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

Initially a little intimidating with all the activities happening. Once we got into a routine it was wonderful. Staff is very accommodating. Evening entertainment was fun. Exploring the ports of call was not to be missed. We rented a car on Aruba and Curacoa, and golf carts on Bonaire to independently explore and snorkle. Fitness center was great and as well the Spa. Dining choices were awesome, never had a bad meal.

Wonderful Cruise, next time not taking Celebrity by SteveBetty

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Having cruised with Celebrity before, we were disappointed with this cruise. They seem to always be "selling" something. The main dinner setting had poor service so you would purchase the specialty restaurants. Little things, missing buttons on the elevators, rusty parts showing on the veranda. However, take the "behinds the scenes" tour of the kitchen, laundry, engineering and bridge. That on ship tour was very interesting!!!

Disappointed by miners87234163

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We sailed with Celebrity previously and it seemed a lot better than this cruise, because of the above. The snacks left in our room was not worth leaving , it was actually embarrassing. In comparison we have sailed to Mexico many times and found it much better as to food and things to do. The people are a lot nicer. The Caribbean Island people are somewhat rude. The ship had a lot of seniors and I feel the activities for us people was very limited. We don't drink, maybe that's why.

We had a very relaxing cruise. The ship was nice and well kept. Food could have been better, but we never went hungry. Martini Bar was a lot of fun. Nice ports. We would pick Celebrity again.

EVERYTHING WE EXPECTED! by shullcat2003

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

STEWARD "LEZLY" WAS VERY ATTENTIVE. BARTENDERS WERE QUICK AND VERY EFFICIENT, BUT IT WAS DIFFICULT TO GET TO KNOW THEM ON A FIRST NAME BASIS, AS I HAVE ON RCCL CRUISES (the Cheers effect) where your favorite bartender knows your name. Also, "Putri" in Oceanview buffet was always there to provide service at breakfast. Sheldon made exceptional Eggs Benedict and the omelette stations were great. THE ONE THING THAT SETS EQUINOX APART FROM OTHER CRUISES, IS SERVICE, GREAT SERVICE!

Worst Cruise I Have Ever Taken by Tropiccafe

Not a very pleasant cruise overall. This was my 15th cruise on many other cruise lines and I rate this one up from last place. Will avoid this cruise line in the future.

Second time, just as awesome as the first by wolters687

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Sailing on Celebrity Equinox is a great way to enjoy the views of the water and ports. The crew members are fantastic - from the buffet staff to the main dining room staff, the stateroom attendants, the production cast members, the cruise director and of course, Captain Kate. The entertainment was over the top - great comedians, vocalists, musicians, the Equinox orchestra - enjoyed every show that we went to. Will definitely continue sailing with Celebrity cruises.

Not the best by relianttaxprep

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Disappointed. The average age of people must be around 65 or older. The music was extremely loud in most locations. There was little beat to the music, only a continuous beat of the drum (LOUD). The drum beat continuous, about every 2 seconds. Even at the bars the musicians were loud. There were few times you could relax without loud music. The porter for our stateroom was great.

Beautiful time on Celebrity Equinox by aandpfl

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Get a balcony room & enjoy the view, the staff & many options of entertainment & food. We loved meeting guests from all over the world. Equinox is a wonderful ship. Captain Kate was outstanding...good communication, humorous, accessible. We were shocked to see her shake hands as we left the ship. What a woman!

Wonderful Caribbean Cruise by JenMar18

I loved this cruise except that, as always, there are not enough deck chairs, and deck attendants will NOT bump people off even if the chair is left unattended (covered in a towel) for hours.
