This is my first review so I hope that you enjoy it. First of all, 3 stars does not mean "awful" it just means "pretty average". So don't think I'm hating on Celebrity, as they are actually currently my favorite line. ... Read more

Cruised with Celebrity Equinox this summer once again and I must say it was still very enjoyable. The ship still has that lovely sparkle I remember. Our Stateroom was 9303 and we had concierge class- however I did not feel that paying ... Read more

Chose this cruise as it did the destinations we wanted, including Istanbul. However, looks like Celebrity have now dropped Istanbul as a cruise destination/port of call. Celebrity changed our cruise, so we overnighted at Athens at the ... Read more

We chose Celebrity because of rave reviews online and from friends. While we loved our ports of call in the Greek Isles, we did not fall in love with the Equinox. The pros: everything was clean, bed was comfortable, and many of the ... Read more

We were in cabin 9296 which seemed to be a nice location. It is said to be an upgraded cabin and the the balcony is a little larger than normal. Since the balcony is slanted towards the stern of the boat, you do not have a great view of ... Read more
