Our fourth Celebrity Cruise and service, accommodations, meals were excellent. That said, the volume of the ever present music was overwhelming. It ruined the enjoyment of the Martini Bar, it bled over into the Molecular Bar, it ... Read more

Cruise was just average. Food was ok....nothing great. And it got boring in the Café as it was almost the same thing every day for 13 days for breakfast, lunch and snacks. Also, the Café was overcrowded and it was hard ... Read more

The reason we chose this cruise was the itinerary. We had never been to either country and looked at this cruise as a great introduction to these cultures and countries. The result was as expected. We loved what we saw enough to start ... Read more

This was cruise number 31 for us and we had a great time. Was it perfect? Well, the weather was on the chilly side in the morning and we had a few showers and light rain in the morning at some of the ports but it didn't keep us down. ... Read more

This cruise was only at sea 3 days of 14. All of our shore adventures made it a rather intense cruise. We enjoyed our 2 weeks on this cruise. Embarkation was quick and painless. Due to some extra cleaning that had to be done, we were ... Read more

We (mom and I) were a little concerned after being delayed for boarding by a norovirus issue. We arrived at the dock shortly after 2pm and had champagne in hand at 2:47! The beverage package was well used as that was the first of many ... Read more

My first "upscale" cruise. I promised my wife a trip to Turkey and a cruise to get there. She did the research and found this cruise. She also found two other couples who wanted to go. All the women looked at the rooms and ... Read more

Picked this cruise because of the ports of call, but found the cruise company to be poor. The food on board was bland, over cooked and lacking in any quality. We visited Spain, France, Italy, Greece and Turkey and non of the meals were ... Read more

After having sailed 9 times with Celebrity this one was a BAD one. 3 of the 9 ports of call were very, totally, disappointing. Industrial harbors with container activity ongoing. What fun to sit on your balcony when coming back on the ... Read more

I think this may be a long one! We have cruised a few times now, formally on Royal Caribbean most recently Celebrity S Class ships. This trip was on Equinox. We had the virus cleanup before we got on board so we boarded late - a drag as ... Read more

Oh dear, be prepared for a noisy crammed packed cruising experience if travelling on the equinox, pool area taken over by privileged teenagers while being deafened by 'Dj Flo's' music choice. Maybe you can relax in the adult only areas ... Read more

Beautiful ship, clean, crowded, no one in charge. our "welcome" consisted of a run down of what drinks you CANNOT order. No one in our group drinks liquor! It took 15 minutes. The class system is in full force even though we were ... Read more
