This was the first segment of our Back to Back cruise, ending with the Trans-Atlantic to Fort Lauderdale. We arrived in Barcelona several days early to give us a chance to sightsee and get used to the time zone. The flight from ... Read more

This was our return transatlantic cruise after 1.5 months travels in Europe. We usually choose an Aqua class or Sky suite, and this time it was Aqua mainly because of Blu restaurant that we like more than Luminae. The Ship is large but ... Read more

I love the Transatlantics...those sea days and 25 hour days are the best way to de-clutter your mind and let the stress go. Celebrity excels at trying very hard to exceed passenger expectations. The itinerary Barcelona, Cartagena, Agadir ... Read more

Our second Celebrity cruise. We liked the sound of the itinerary. I researched the itin prior to sailing. Didn't need to after all. Embarkation was very smooth, as was disembarking. The staff really wants to expedite the process. The ship ... Read more

This was the second segment of our Back to Back cruise. We were allowed to stay on the ship in Barcelona and we didn't change cabins, thanks to the Future Cruise folks who made the original reservation. There were something like 300+ ... Read more

I chose this cruise because Equinox has always been my favorite Solstice class ship and I knew this would be its last European voyage. The service on this cruise was excellent as is the norm for Celebrity. The food served in the main ... Read more

The positives of cruising on the Equinox are many and already well described by many other reviewers. The crew and officers are genuinely friendly and that helps make this cruise memorable and pleasant. For a TA the speaker program was a ... Read more

Overall my experience was great but from what I had heard about Celebrity, I was disappointed. The food was good but not great. The dessert selection in the dining room was limited and I only had one dessert that was very good. Many of ... Read more

We chose this cruise as we had enjoyed our first cruise on board the Reflection a year previous. Ironically the Reflection was alongside us in Barcelona , which brought back happy memories. We knew the cabin would be well appointed with ... Read more

As a retired couple, early 60's, we have cruised with other companies but were attracted to this cruise because of the timing and ports visited. We booked a stateroom with balcony (6214) and were very pleased with the size, facilities and ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary and its continuing Transatlantic cruise. We were lucky enough to stay in the same stateroom. The process of the continuation was done seamlessly. There were over 300 of us, the whole thing was handled ... Read more

We have cruised on Equinox twice before and have done this cruise once before. For us Celebrity was always top for us before NCL, RCI MSC and others. Unfortunately they appear to have taken a commercial decision to plunge down market. ... Read more

What a smooth process for embarkation - we were booked in a Celebrity Suite and found ourselves guided to Michael's Club by a staff person from Guest Relations. There we met our Captain's Club Hostess Maila who personally walked us to our ... Read more

We have used the company before and like it, so an early birthday treat became essential this year. My husband unfortunately injured his back on travelling to Manchester for our early morning flight which troubled him somewhat and he ... Read more

This was our first Cruise. Our flight to Barcelona was fine. But didn't really give you time to visit the City. At Embarkation there were large crowds, seemed to take ages, but once the desks opened it got moving. Disembarkation ... Read more

My husband was very resistant to the idea of cruising but he had promised that we would go on a cruise for my 60th birthday and I held him to that promise. I researched ships and itineraries carefully, and had been assured by friends who ... Read more

We had done this itinerary 4 years ago and enjoyed it so much we wanted to do it again. Ports: Being the second visit to the ports allowed us to be a bit more selective of what to see/do. For the majority of the ports we explored on ... Read more

Chose this based on recommendations of two different people who had been on this ship. This was our first cruise ever, and we were very pleased with our experience. First of all, 100% of the staff were friendly, helpful, upbeat- even the ... Read more

We had been on Celebrity before and liked it. This ship was going where we wanted to go so we chose it! Our cabin was a concierge class and that was special. We had fresh fruit every morning and canapes around 3. It seemed like every ... Read more

We were first-time cruisers and we were delighted to have taken up a recommendation from an acquaintance who cruised on Equinox last October. We booked our own flights and hotels because we could not get direct flights from our home ... Read more
