Wow, what a great cruise. I’ll preface this with we went on the same cruise last year. Also, it was a Charter and left on the 27th of February and was 5 days. Arriving at Port Everglades, we found Starvista had a great backdrop ... Read more

Enjoyed the cruise immensely due to the itinerary, but being on the Equinox is just like being on a tired version of the Eclipse. I missed Qsine but still love the Martini Bar. We opted for select dining this time; not sure we would do ... Read more

The glaring issues were the poor, never to be seen cruise director and THE WORST DJ at sea. A cruise director should be seen about the ship all day and night long. I have no idea where the cruise director John could possibly be at any ... Read more

The ports of call were a little different from usual South American ones with Ilhabela and Buzios included. The shore excursion department did not always have correct information to give on the excursions offered, and I found that ... Read more

I was joining a Church group of 55 people from Naples Florida. We came over by coach and the embarkation went fairly well, we did have a long line, even though we were in Concierge, but it did not take as long as we feared. We finally ... Read more

We sailed from Hong Kong and as being less able than a lot of the passengers enjoyed the embarkation process as it was very quick and efficient. The cabins were great size with balconies for 2 out of the 3 couples who sailed in our ... Read more

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

This was my first cruise; a 7 night trip to Alaska to celebrate my 30th birthday. Overall, I really enjoyed it. The itinerary seems fairly standard for cruises in Alaska. We sailed from Vancouver on the 5th, then spent a day at sea ... Read more
