Have cruised several times, but this was our first on Celebrity. As we were cruising with three other couples, to celebrate three of our birthdays, we were restricted on when and where we cruised. The other three couple are from the US, so ... Read more

This was a charter with Star Vista 70's Rock and Romance Cruise. It was our first cruise ever and we truly enjoyed it. Since Star Vista takes care of the entertainment and activities I won't comment except to say their staff was wonderful ... Read more

We went on this cruise with a group from our community. First time on Celebrity and first time to the western Caribbean. The embarkation process went very smooth. No more than 20 minutes from the time we arrived by bus (a group of 100) ... 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

We wanted to go to go to the Rio Carnival, which this cruise was focussed around, and also the Iguazu Falls which we were able to add on as an extra at the end of the cruise. These two locations did not disappoint. We should point out ... Read more

We selected this cruise as a short get away for a group of adults. Close proximity to port; size of ship and based on prior experience on Summit. We enjoyed the Summit when we cruised on her in 2015. Now, she is in need of some TLC: ... Read more
