March 2015 - 10 Night Ultimate Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Equinox
Celebrity Equinox Cruise
We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary by cruising to the Caribbean on Celebrity's "Equinox." We visited St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Barbados, Dominica and St. Maarten. The food in the main dining room was excellent, as was the buffet in the Oceanview Cafe, and we had no difficulty finding a table there. As an Elite member, we were given many "perks", such as continental breakast in the Tuscan Lounge, invitations to many cocktail parties and cocktails with the officers, a backstage theater tour, a visit to the heliport from which the view of St. Maarten was spectacular, free Internet use and free laundry. We particularly enjoyed DJ, Geo, who played ballroom dance music every evening for 45 minutes. We. also very much enjoyed the Celebrity orchestra when they played ballroom dance music one evening. Being able to ballroom dance is one of the reasons we love to sail on Celebrity. Also, we enjoyed the "Burn It Off" exercise classes that were held on the deck. We were disappointed that there is now a charge for zumba. The shows were excellent, with the exception of one evening when the acoustics were so loud that we had to leave the theater. All told, we had a wonderful time and couldn't have chosen a better cruise to celebrate our Golden wedding anniversary.
