Being our first ever cruise we really didn't know what to expect, but from beginning to end it was very well organised with no disruptions. We had been staying in Barcelona in an apartment before the cruise, we hailed a taxi outside at ... Read more

This was our third S-class Celebrity ship (we have previously been on the Eclipse and Reflection), and our first Mediterranean cruise. It was amazing. The cruise started in Barcelona. As we had never been there, we didn't do the usual ... Read more

We had travelled with Celebrity previously so thought we would repeat the experience. We found there had been quite a few changes since our last trip with them. We were in a Concierge stateroom. We found small things like lack of ... Read more

We've chosen Celebrity 3 times before and we thought we knew what to expect. Good food, good service, relaxation. In fact we'd been on the Equinox before just 2 years earlier. This cruise was at best "poor". The excursions ... Read more

This was our 15th Cruise. Majority of which have been with Celebrity who we had found to give a luxury cruise in the past. Sadly with all the cutbacks they have made, they no longer deserve the heading of luxury.All the little touches ... Read more

Based upon previous cruises with Celebrity we decided to book a last minute cruise on the Equinox. We were guaranteed an ocean view but were upgraded to concierge class. So we were quite happy with that. We had Champagne in the room upon ... Read more

My last "cruise" was courtesy of the US Navy 40 years ago when I served in the USMC. Unlike many of my companions on that one, I enjoyed it despite the cramped quarters and sparse amenities. Since then, I'd always been curious ... Read more

This is a simply splendid ship full of a really splendid crew, I cannot imagine how Celebrity could improve on either one of them, I don't think I encountered any crew member who wasn't smiling and just falling over themselves to be ... Read more

This cruise on Celebrity Equinox restored my waning interest in cruising and the direction of the cruise industry in general over the past 10 years. I feel and definitely recognize like some others that cruise lines had been lowering the ... Read more

Overall, we enjoyed this cruise and the ports of call. However, having 4 days of back to back ports in Greece and Turkey was very tiring due to all ot the rough, hilly terrain. The food was good, the service excellent and the staff very ... Read more
