Ship Facts: Celebrity Equinox Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Equinox Deck Plans
Dancing Across the Caribbean
Embarked at Ft. Lauderdale. Embarkation was quick and efficient at the new terminal.

Impressions of Ship: The ship was beautiful and clean. We never got tired of our surroundings during the 11 days.

Food: We are not super particular gourmets and found the food to be excellent. We got a package for the three specialty restaurants ($10 off for buying the package). We thought 11 nights in the main dining room would be a little much. All three specialty restaurants were phenomenal. Service was adequate. Not as good as on other cruises but that's the luck of the draw.

Dancing was our main form of recreation. We are into ballroom and found the cruise to be more than adequate for most of the ballroom styles. Every night there was an hour of ballroom dancing in the Grand Foyer, before dinner. We had a little trouble with the traffic coming down the staircase but it was mostly a pleasant experience. There was a tremendous dance band on the ship and we danced to them in a variety of venues and to a variety of ballroom styles. A cruise highlight was being chosen, along with my wife, for the Everybody Dance competition. (like Dancing with the Stars) We had a ball and our partners Lexi and Landon were both great dancers and very nice people. There were two dance lessons taught on every sea day. These lessons were taught by the ships dancers Lexi, Landon, Byron and Natasha. They were great instructors. We learned something from each lesson even though we have been ballroom dancing for a little while. There were also special interactive events usually kicked off by the ships dancers. All in all were were very satisfied with our experience in this area.

We had always cruised Royal Caribbean before and found Celebrity to be a little more upscale but not enough to preclude Royal Caribbean in the future. All in all it was a very enjoyable cruise with lots of memories made.
