We choose the btb option as we were going to Mardi Gras but wanted something to add on. The first 10 days of the cruise were fantastic, good ports, nice crowd on board good vibes. The Mardi Gras cruise was completely different. There ... Read more

We chose this cruise to go to Mardi Gras. It worked out great as the dock is close to town and we could walk to the parade sites and pretty much anywhere in the French Quarter. The other ports were OK but we have been to them many times ... 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

This cruise included Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Music was basically Jazz.. The passengers were born in the 50's for the most part. Entertainment was awful. High school musical and amateurish. Comedians were very good. Pool deck music was ... Read more

Just returned from a fantastic cruise on the Celebrity Equinox with two nights in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras was great and we were able to see four parades. The parade experience is pretty family friendly but Bourbon ... Read more

We chose this cruise because Celebrity has a good reputation. I would say that it is mainly deserved. The ship itself was very smart and the buffet is the best I have experienced in terms of choice and spacious layout. Food was ... Read more

We booked this cruise while we were on Celebrity Silhouette 18 months prior. Sister ships to be sure, but there are a few differences and had been some changes since then. The Equinox delivers the typical Celebrity experience. The ... Read more

This was a good size ship. It had a similar design to many other ships by Celebrity. We found the select dining worked well as we could eat when we liked. We only waited in line 5-10 min to be seated, usually sat with another couple. There ... Read more

The itinerary of this cruise is what drew my wife and I to it. Going to the deep south of the Caribbean was very intriguing. Also the relaxed pace of the cruise, not the 5 or 6 port days in a row, was appealing too. Cartagena, Columbia ... Read more
