Ship Facts: Celebrity Equinox Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Equinox Deck Plans
Glitzy ship;
Equinox is an exquisite ship, a delight to cruise on, but Celebrity has slipped down to my #3 favorite line. Outside balcony CABIN SIZE was adequate for one, but very, very small for two people with very limited shelf/drawer/closet space. The ENTERTAINMENT, with a single exception, was lackluster and quite boring. The ONE great show was a cirque du soleil type called "Equinox" which was a 5+! Same old comedians, jugglers, et al. Cast seemed to lack any energy or enthusiasm with that one exception.

The CUISINE for breakfast and lunch in the buffet Oceanside Cafe and poolside cafe was typical and good. BUT DINNER, ALAS! The buffet doesn't really exist for dinner except for sushi, pasta, salad, and a limited hot menu. People are forced into the dining room or specialty restaurants. I don't like to pay more for "specialty", so ate in the dining room. Fabulous wait staff! But the menu was close to awful. Steaks were tough; chicken overdone; pork chop raw; you have to ask for a baked potato as that's not even on the menu.

I expect good to excellent food from Celebrity but it is missing here. They told us that it was a system-wide menu with no variation allowed.

Since I am already booked for a June Med/Europe cruise on this same ship, I guess I'll figure out how to get a good meal. Maybe room service?

Great ITINERARY March/April: Cozumel, Roatan (Honduras), Costa Rica, Panama, Cartagena (Columbia), and Grand Cayman, BUT SHIP EXCURSIONS are poor. Book your own or get one while in port.

I rate this cruise experience a "C" for average.
