Same old, same old Caribbean cruise. We aren't fans of third world tourist shopping and the excursion from Costa Maya that resulted in 12 death due to a bus overturning two weeks before we went discouraged us from any excursion.
IF we go on a Caribbean cruise again it will be on a new mega ship that will be the attraction.
Overall a fun relaxing cruise. My teens had not many daytime choices though I didn’t want them playing xbox all day. Would’ve been better for them if there was more outdoor activities besides basketball and pool.
EXCELLENT! 5-Star Quality! Celebrity cruise line is my preferred way of travel. I cruised the a Reflection and received service I thought could not be topped, but Equinox did, so I am looking to see how the next Celebrity boat series will top the Equinox.
I have cruised with other lines, Celebrity beats them all. Every staff member from housekeeping to the officers make you feel welcome, appreciated and important. They all appear to love their jobs and are happy to be there. Service is impeccable. Ship is clean, food is great. Ports lose their importance when you really don’t care to leave the ship!
Nothing special with this itinerary. Celebrity Equinox is a great ship. Celebrity has very good food at all venues. They are more of a laid back, big on service cruise line. Night life, activities, and entertainment are not a strength.
The ports of call were beautiful. I would do these ports again in a heart beat.probable the best thing on this cruise was our wait staff (Ersin and Antonio). There were many items I didn't know about and Ersin and Antonio were ther to explain what they were.
These 2 men were fantastic and if I ever cruise this ship again, I hope these 2 men are at my table.
We enjoyed our cruise. Our stateroom attendant (Paul) was amazing and the waiters (Ashron and Beldev) were great. Milo was excellent in coordinating our next dinners at each sitting.
The mixup at Guest Relations was frustrating, and could have easily been avoided. The fact that it dragged on for the entire cruise was a huge disappointment to us. Frankly, it surprised me, as the customer service elsewhere on the ship was superb.
It may sound like I am just complaining, but we actually had a very god time. I just hi-lighted a few things that did bother us. I also noticed that we only docked about until around 5:00. Other cruise lines stay at port until later.
Overall experience was wonderful. There was a bit of confusion in making reservations for the specialty dining venues; quite a lot of mix-ups, but finally got it corrected. The entertainment (shows) and music should improve. We were surprised that for a Caribbean cruise there was a lack of Latin music being played.
