We chose this cruise because it was a Jet Set Sail package from Stansted. The transfer from the UK to the ship was first class and completely hassle free. At no point were we left to fend for ourselves, the meet and greet team at Athens ... 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 had cruised for a number of years. About three years ago we went on P& O for 17 nights. We had been two years before. The price had gone up quite a lot. As soon as we got on board you could see the difference. The standard of food ... 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

We have sailed with Holland America and Carnival - no comparison with the Celebrity Equinox. I can't say enough about the quality of the food (choose the BLU dining room!) and the EXCEPTIONAL staff. On other ships I have often felt the ... Read more

After several cruises on smaller (600-700 passengers) ships, we decided to return to Celebrity because we loved this itinerary and the price was attractive with the perks offered. This ship just sparkles! Everything is clean and bright ... Read more

Flight to Athens was uneventful. Arrived on time, and took a cab to the Intercontinental Athens for one night. Hotel was beautiful, but, is in the middle of nowhere. They had a shuttle bus that takes you to and from the square in Athens ... Read more
